Morgan Hill, CA, March 10, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- TeleHealth365, a Silicon Valley company founded by visionary Vijay Sharma, is pioneering technology to solve the growing crisis of healthcare costs in the United States. In 2014, the US spent $3.8 trillion on healthcare and the number has been increasing each year for the past decade (Forbes.com). Healthcare projections indicate that the shortage of physicians, chronic diseases and an aging population will place additional demands on the existing healthcare system. Hospitals spent $41.3 billion between January and November 2011 to treat patients readmitted within 30 days of discharge, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. $24 billion was due to Medicare readmissions which likely could have been avoided with better post-discharge care.
TeleHealth365 has released its flagship product, OmniPresence 2.0, which connects patients at home with their healthcare providers anywhere in the world. OmniPresence provides secure video-conferencing that is fully encrypted and HIPAA compliant, unlike other consumer grade video systems which are not secure and do not meet the stringent privacy requirements needed for the exchange of health information. The service resides in the cloud and there is no software to install. It is easy to use and no special equipment is needed beyond your everyday tablet, smartphone or PC.
OmniPresence allows nurse practitioners or hospital doctors to monitor post-surgical patients in the convenience of their own homes, to check on their recovery, medications, and rehabilitation process. This increases the potential of reducing the readmissions which are avoidable, and enhances recovery for patients. CEO Vijay Sharma calls the service, “Doctor-At-HomeTM,” and believes it is a potent tool optimizing the physician’s availability while benefitting the patient’s wellbeing.
TeleHealth365 plans to shake-up and revolutionize the healthcare industry by offering their secure video conferencing solution free to all medical practitioners. For more information, visit http://www.TeleHealth365.com
