Kyocera, Authentidate complete mobile telehealth system test


Kyocera and Authentidate announced the completion of interoperability testing on an integrated mobile healthcare solution for remote patient monitoring.

The goal of the testing, the press release reads, was to combine Kyocera’s expertise in hardware development, manufacturing and product fulfillment with Authentidate’s software and command of healthcare business process workflow.

By implementing Authentidate’s InscrybeMD remote patient monitoring application on the Kyocera’s Brigadier ruggedized smartphone potentially creates a cost-effective tool for healthcare providers to set up tailored monitoring sessions of patient health with fewer in-person doctor or emergency-room visits. Providers on their end could use the remote patient monitoring solution to manage patients who have chronic diseases such as Diabetes, Hypertension, Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and a number of behavioral health conditions. Additionally, this setup could also be used to manage wellness and other programs such as weight management and tobacco cessation.

“Completing this interoperability testing creates the potential for an integrated solution that would allow healthcare organizations to leverage not only Authentidate’s deep software-design and services experience and extensive relationships within the healthcare market, but also Kyocera’s proven expertise in durable hardware engineering, longstanding relationships with wireless service providers and nationwide infrastructure for distribution, service and support,” said Hiroshi Funatogawa, president of Kyocera Communications.
