Authentidate powers VA telehealth services

The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has selected Authentidate Holding, a provider of health information exchange (HIE) and telehealth tools, as a supplier for its nationwide home telehealth services program.

Authentidate is one of six companies selected by the VA to receive a home telehealth contract for this program in connection with the VA's recent request for proposal for home telehealth services.

As an approved VA supplier, VA facilities throughout the country will be able to utilize Authentidate’s Electronic House Call (EHC) tool (developed by its ExpressMD joint venture) and its Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system to remotely monitor patients and enhance patient care, according to Authentidate, of Berkeley Heights, N.J.

The VA contract spans a five-year period, which consists of a one-year base period and four optional one-year renewal periods.
