Fourth Emergency Medicine Services (EMS) contract in 2022 as more EMS choose the Cloud DX Virtual Care Platform
KITCHENER, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 8, 2022 / Cloud DX (TSXV:CDX) (OTC:CDXFF), a leading Virtual Care platform, announced a new contract with a fourth Paramedic Service Provider. An Ontario County paramedic service selected the company’s Connected Health™ platform to introduce Remote Patient Monitoring to the community in order to improve population health, patient outcomes, and alleviate burdens on its hospital system. Using funding from the Paramedicine for Long-Term Care program, the County will launch the program in June 2022. Cloud DX has signed 17 contracts or contract extensions so far in 2022, exceeding the total number of contracts signed in 2021 by 142%.
Cloud DX’s Connected Health™ kit works, right out of the box. The kit includes a tablet and biometric vital sign devices to record patient health data and readings such as heart rate, temperature, weight, and blood pressure. Patients can record symptoms and answer health surveys right in the app, and then conduct a secure telehealth visit in a seamless environment. Once the kit is in the patient’s hands, the EMS team or Cloud DX’s support team walks patients through unboxing the equipment, logging in, taking readings, and will schedule follow-up to ensure users are comfortable with the equipment and platform.
The Cloud DX system creates a self-management environment. From the start, patients are in the loop about their health. Cloud DX notifications work to manage the vital sign data flow and if readings exceed pre-set thresholds created by the care team, the patient and the community paramedic team can be notified. This functionality minimizes false alarms while closely monitoring patient conditions.
Community Paramedics see the value of remote patient monitoring for homebound patients awaiting long-term care accommodations, the chronically ill, and/or post-surgical care patients. By keeping tabs on patients this way, EMS providers can intervene earlier to change behavior, send a home-care nurse to make a house call, or dispatch ambulances earlier. The result, in published peer-reviewed studies, is that patients use the emergency room less, are admitted into hospital less, live at home longer, and feel more in control of their health.
“At home remote monitoring is critical to improving the health of vulnerable populations such as community members with chronic conditions or seniors who wish to live independently for as long as possible,” says Anthony Kaul, Cloud DX COO and co-founder.
