Hospitals & Health Networks – UPMC, the huge Pittsburgh-based health care network, is expected to go live this month with an important enhancement to its telehealth program. UPMC will deploy a comprehensive cloud-based platform that will facilitate virtual care visits to those with chronic diseases.
Initially, the program from Vivify Health, Plano, Texas, will be deployed across two service lines: patients with congestive heart failure and those in the UPMC Health Plan’s advanced illness care program. The system will enable patients to transmit biometric data and other information easily through any consumer mobile device directly to care teams for analysis and rapid follow-up.
