Today, connected health is paramount for superior interaction between patients and caregivers. In the face of a growing elderly population and an increasing number of patients with chronic diseases, connected health models can bridge the communication gap between patients and healthcare providers, drastically improve patient engagement and enhance the quality of care. However, currently, there still seems to be an invariant disconnect in care management as patients rarely see the advantages of engaging with connected health solutions. Aimed at improving the adoption of digital health to generate value for all the stakeholders across the healthcare sector, Vree Health Italia is redesigning the way technology can be applied to people’s health. As a frontrunner in connected health solutions and services, Vree Health Italia has developed a comprehensive set of patient engagement solutions and services that meet the current market demands of value, innovation and sustainability.
With the objective to give “more life to life,” Vree Health Italia provides digital health-based solutions and services where people, processes and technologies are integrated to improve access, quality, value and sustainability of cure and care. “With Vree Health’s avant-garde technology, patients and caregivers can exchange health information in the comfort of their homes, improving the quality of healthcare through personalised care pathways,” explains Gianluca Gigante, business director of Vree Health Italia.
The company offers a distinct suite of solutions and products that are focused on making a difference in patients’ lives, improving the value of digital health and its adoption across the healthcare sector. The solutions address a spectrum of areas around care management, which include remote patient monitoring (Doctor Plus®), chronic care management (Chronic Plus®), telemedicine and point of care (Doctor Plus® Analysis).
Products support care management (Platform CareIT®) and neuromuscular block monitoring (iTOF®) and they are both CE certified. “Our solutions and products have shown an improvement in clinical outcomes with reduced clinical emergencies and hospitalization rates,” remarks Gigante.
Vree Health’s Doctor Plus® combines clinically validated patient monitoring protocols, digital health solutions and qualified services to redefine a patient’s health journey. The comprehensive solution enables clinicians to manage patients with low to medium complexity to ensure continuity of care outside the hospital premises. Doctor Plus® allows healthcare professionals, clinicians, and nurses to monitor clinical conditions remotely and is used in therapeutic areas like diabetes, hypertension, oncology, and nephrology. Nephrologists use Doctor Plus® NEPHRO to facilitate remote patient monitoring (RPM) and improve patient care in home dialysis. Several scientific publications demonstrate the value of Doctor Plus®.
Concurrently, Vree Health Italia also offers the CareIT® platform to enable the integration of information between the various participants in a patient engagement environment, which includes healthcare organisations, the patient and the general practitioner. Through the platform, the GP has access to a broad range of clinical information and has the freedom to define an individualised care plan that helps the patient improve their self-management capacity. To improve patient education and empower them, the platform offers different features such as instant messages and apps for communication between the patients and caregivers.
Vree Health Italia has also developed a proprietary device iTOF® for neuromuscular function monitoring by the electrostimulation of the ulnar, tibial or facial nerve. iTOF® has brought in a modern and safe approach to monitor the neuromuscular functions through its revolutionary technology.
Continuing on its innovation streak, Vree Health Italia envisions bringing in a value-based, holistic approach to connected health and patient engagement through its solutions. Working toward its goal of empowering healthcare organisations to adopt a sustainable and patient-centric healthcare model, Vree Health Italia is continuously enhancing its strategy in public and private markets in Italy. With an aim to give "more life to life" and impact the healthcare sector, Vree Health Italia plans to expand its product portfolio and venture into new territories across the globe, especially in Europe.
