International Caregiver Network, JEMS Technology Offer Home Health Agencies Mobile Access to Medical Experts
SOUTHFIELD — International Caregiver Network recently began offering JEMS Technology to its network of home health and hospice care providers nationwide.
The JEMS mobile health platform will offer ICN providers a system for remote monitoring for chronic disease management.
“The JEMS Technology platform will enable ICN providers to engage patients in self-management of their conditions,” said ICN managing partner David L. Solomon. “Using JEMS’ technology, patients will be able to transmit critical information to health care providers — anytime and anywhere — offering quality care to homebound patients.”
Using the JEMS Technology platform a home-based care provider can send live, streaming video to a mobile device where a doctor or nurse can offer medical guidance in real time. Remote monitoring enables home health agencies to allocate resources more efficiently so that highly skilled workers can assist more patients in need and spend less time on the road traveling.
“Home health providers do not have massive teams of IT experts like large hospital systems or insurance companies,” Solomon said. “JEMS Technology is ideal for ICN’s home health clients because it’s HIPAA compliant, compatible with iPhone and Android devices, and, it’s a ‘plug and play’ solution that can either stand alone or become integrated into existing enterprise architecture.”
“We’re excited to see ICN taking the lead in long-term care” said Kevin Lasser, chief executive officer of JEMS Technology. “Home health care providers – who care for a growing number of people every year – are the ideal users of mobile health technology. The JEMS platform offers ICN providers access to medical experts right from a patient’s home.”
Based in Southfield, International Caregiver Network is committed to serving the needs of aging populations and supporting family and professional caregivers who provide long-term care for our loved ones. In addition to helping home health and hospice care providers improve efficiency through user-friendly technologies, ICN conducts research on innovative health care delivery models and cost containment strategies to achieve improved outcomes for patients and communities.
