Partnerships with Qualcomm and Verizon; i - HOME Workshop
NEW YORK – AMC Health, a leading provider of 'real-time' patient management solutions, will showcase advances in monitored care that are transforming chronic care and population health management at the upcoming HIMSS 2015 Conference. The conference will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, from April 12 through 16. In addition to demonstrating its partnerships with Qualcomm and Verizon at their respective booths, AMC Health will share innovations that transform the way healthcare is delivered in the home through its participation in the Intelligent Health Association's "The Continuum of Health from the Hospital to the i - HOME" workshop. The workshop will be held at the Roosevelt University Downtown Campus on April 12.
AMC Health will participate on the New Solutions Technologies Transforming the i - HOME Landscape panel. Patients, caregivers and clinicians are much more connected than they were even just a few years ago, and panel experts will review solutions and technologies that are now leveraged in the home to keep patients healthier and enable them to take a more active role in managing their health.
AMC Health will be on the exhibition floor at the following locations:
Intelligent Home Pavilion - See and learn about AMC Health's Remote Patient Monitoring and Engagement Solutions in the Intelligent Medical Home installation. Take the tour and experience technologies now available in a patient's home. Different use cases will demonstrate how the home has now become the third locus of care, supplementing hospitals and outpatient settings (such as clinics and doctors' offices). Booth #6656, Kiosk 36
Qualcomm Pavilion - Learn how the integration of Qualcomm Life's Connectivity Platform with AMC Health's CareConsole™ care coordination platform will increase connectivity and care coordination between patients and their care teams. Booth #6420
