Israel-based remote care automation company, Datos Health, and providers of medication adherence solutions, Vaica Medical, have partnered up to include medication adherence information as part of Datos’ offering of data relating to status of patients’ health and wellbeing.
The solution has been first implemented at Sheba Medical Center.
WHY IT MATTERS
The partnership addresses the lack of patient adherence to treatments and the challenge this poses by impacting patients’ recovery which results in a greater burden on healthcare providers.
Vaica’s comprehensive medication adherence technology is synchronised with patient-generated data collated and evaluated by Datos’ remote care platform. This enables clinicians to stay up-to-date regarding the status of patients and facilitating decision making.
THE LARGER CONTEXT
The first implementation for this collaboration began in the third quarter of 2020 with the Psychiatry Division at Sheba Medical Center, as part of an overall program to introduce comprehensive remote psychiatric care.
Earlier this year, Datos’s remote patient monitoring platform, Tyto Care’s connected devices, and a robot from InTouch Health helped Sheba Hospital treat and Monitor patients in quarantine and at home.
Meanwhile, UK-based HealthHero launched a telehealth platform, allowing patients to communicate with general practitioners, mental health clinicians and specialists.
ON THE RECORD
Uri Bettesh, CEO and founder of Datos Health, said: "Partnering with Vaica allows us to complement our remote care offerings with a new dimension, furthering our goal of advancing proactive and personalized care through increased patient engagement. We look forward to continually expanding our capabilities to support hospitals through remote care initiatives that can ultimately improve patient outcomes.”
Tomer Gofer, CEO for Vaica Medical, said: “The fundamental goal of this partnership is to improve medication adherence rates among patients through remote care technology, setting the foundation for improved patient-clinician engagement and better-informed treatment. Through our collaboration with Datos, care teams will be able to not only monitor patient adherence to medication in real-time, but also correlate this new layer of information with additional data to fully benefit both patients and providers.”
