CareSpan USA, Inc.and Lamprey Networks, Inc. announced the LNI Health@home hub and Health@home Exchange to move data from hundreds of Continua-compliant devices into the CareSpan Virtual Clinic interface. CareSpan is the first HIPAA compliant digital healthcare platform to incorporate high resolution video communications with a full array of vital signs, breathing/heart sounds, ECG rhythms, medical images and patient records in a workspace designed by physicians for effective and reimbursable care delivery.
LNI will supply its Health@home routers as part of a CarePoint device kit that CareSpan installs at its service locations that include remote work sites such as offshore oil platforms or at Native American community health centers. CarePoints are also being stationed in assisted living centers and corporate offices. Patients at these CarePoints will have standard vital signs, weight/BMI, breathing sounds and images taken with the assistance of an EMT or Physician’s Assistant. Patient data collected during each exam is uniquely identified and securely routed over LNI’s Health@home Exchange to the CareSpan Virtual Clinic for a provider to view and annotate real-time during an exam. Patient data typically transfers from capture to display in five seconds.
CareSpan and LNI have completed integration between their respective systems and are completing a test suite validating a broad range of Continua devices. Commercial deployments are anticipated to begin in 2016.
