CapMed and Confidant are collaborating to deliver new chronic disease management systems. CapMed is a leading provider of personal health record (PHR) management systems, while Confidant is a leader in developing mobile communication tools for chronic disease management.
Working together, the companies provide a system that offers a complete picture of an individual’s health history, but overlays up-to-the minute data gathered directly from common glucose meters, weight scales and blood pressure cuffs. The combination of complete, historical data and real-time information about a patient’s condition, day-to-day health habits and therapeutic compliance empowers individuals to take ownership of their health and provides caregivers access to valuable information that was previously difficult or even impossible to obtain, the company said.
The companies’ collaborative efforts are being displayed at the HIMSS conference in New Orleans this week.
