The E-Medicus "docdok.health" solution, running on T-Systems' secure vCloud technology, brings together patients and providers through a simple and secure communication channel in a bi-directional form of patient engagement and real-world data collection.
When Yves Nordmann, M.D., E-Medicus Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer, learned about ViiMed's dynamic clinical pathway building capabilities through ViiMed's affiliation with the COPD Foundation, he stated: "The ViiMed platform is a perfect complement to our docdok.health solution, as it will enable our current and future health care organisations to rapidly create and personalize their own pathways inside the docdok.health solution."
The collaborative effort assembles a diverse range of solutions, knowledge, backgrounds, and experience aimed to improve patient-centered care and decrease health care costs. The focus of the first iteration of the combined solution will be twofold - chronic care health coaching and orthopedic peri-optimization.
When asked about the partnership, Phil Newman, ViiMed's CEO, stated: "E-Medicus docdok.health solution is a powerful patient engagement tool, and we are excited to layer our capabilities within it. In addition to enabling docdok.health providers to deploy their pathways to their patients, we will also help organisations, like the COPD Foundation and our other pathway partners, extend their reach beyond the US in a secure and regulatory compliant fashion."
E-Medicus plans to release its joint solution to its clients in the first quarter of 2016. The solution will help E-Medicus' existing and future health care providers, research institutions and clinical trial organisations more rapidly optimize their existing workflows, provide remote health coaching both synchronously and asynchronously, collect real-word data, and deliver cost-efficient clinical trial management.
