Health-e-Connect

Overview

The Health-e-Connect System is a medical device that is FDA 510(k) cleared and HIPAA compliant. The system allows data to be uploaded remotely from patient glucose meters to a secure website where the data can be analyzed by patients, caregivers, providers, health plans, and others.    The system can then transmit messages to the patient, to clinicians, or to others as needed.

System Features

  • Complete integrated system that is universally compatible with major glucose meters also including text, secure internal message and e-mail capabilities for targeted, bi-directional communication between patients, providers and Diabetes Care Facilitators (DCFs).
  • Efficient Population Management Tools that allows review of actual, verifiable patient data and permits the sorting of patients based upon the need for intervention.
  • System monitors testing patterns and can therefore both monitor patient testing frequency and verify glucose test strip usage.

Patient Benefits

  • Patients receive attention based on criteria set by their clinician and can benefit from corrections, coaching and encouragement between clinical visits.
  • The simple reminders and feedback are expected to help improve patient adherence to care plan.
  • Most patients need not switch glucose meters, as Health-e-Connect is compatible with most  major brands of meters.
  • May make physician visits more productive by providing accurate data for clinician to analyze.

Healthcare Providers Benefits

  • Implementation is easy and cost effective with no capital outlay requirement.
  • Streamlines administration for viewing patient results by formatting all data for all patients and all meters in one platform.
  • ALRT is able to work with EMR providers to allow data transfer to simplify start up.
  • Users can be confident that Health-e-Connect and ALR Technologies meet stringent requirements to ensure the quality and security of data with systems in place to ensure ongoing service and support.
  • May result in a more efficient use of the clinician’s time.  In a Pay for Performance and/or ACO setting, it may allow for an increase in patient load without compromising with the goal to improve patient outcomes.
