BOSTON – December 15, 2020 – Lumeon, the leader in care orchestration, today announced that its COVID-19 Remote Home Monitoring Solution received a Gold award for Best New Product of the Year in the Healthcare and Medical category of the 9th Best in Biz 2020 Awards North America®.
This marks the fifth time this year that Lumeon has been recognized for solutions that allow healthcare providers to more effectively coordinate care delivery processes. It follows award wins earlier this year in the American Business Awards®, the International Business Awards®, the Best In Biz International Awards® and the Health Tech Outlook Awards®.
As hospitals wards become overwhelmed with critically ill COVID-19 patients, emergency departments (EDs) have struggled to triage and assess all patients in-person. To alleviate the pressure on the ED, Lumeon’s COVID-19 Remote Home Monitoring solution keeps patients safe at home while monitoring their health care needs remotely during the pandemic.
The SMS-based solution digitally screens and enrolls symptomatic patients onto a remote monitoring program, which automatically delivers risk assessment surveys twice daily by SMS. Patient symptoms, blood oxygen levels and co-morbidities are algorithmically analyzed, and patients with worsening respiratory symptoms are immediately escalated to a centralized clinical team.
The solution requires no integration and can be deployed quickly, making it equipped for a rapid response as the pandemic worsens. It has already been deployed at 11 EDs under NYC Health + Hospitals, reducing pressure on their front-line staff while helping focus clinician time on those most in need.
“This pandemic has created an urgent need to prevent all but the most critical patients from entering the hospital, while continuing to ensure that those displaying symptoms are identified and closely monitored,” said Robbie Hughes, Lumeon CEO. “Our Remote Home Monitoring solution satisfies this very need, and at the same time, is supporting providers’ broader virtual care models, bridging them into the ‘new normal’ by monitoring patients remotely at home, helping patients recover and stabilize, and care team focus on those most in need.”
Lumeon’s SaaS Orchestration platform helps health systems scale efficient, effective care delivery both within and beyond the 4 walls of their hospitals.
Its industry-leading solution transforms the EHR into an agile care delivery platform personalizing the patient experience and coordinating teams as one. It assists patients in navigating their care journey while harmonizing care, communication, tasks, and decisions to increase revenue, optimize resource utilization, and deliver superior outcomes at reduced cost.
More than 70 progressive health systems across 12 countries have deployed Lumeon’s multi-award-winning platform. www.lumeon.com
