The Chilean company AccuHealth has joined the Business Call to Action (BCtA) with a patient-centric tele-monitoring service designed to improve the health and livelihoods of chronically ill patients with value-added medical care at an affordable cost. AccuHealth’s inclusive business model aims to provide patients diagnosed with non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and their families with a better quality of life by combining an evidence-based telehealth monitoring service with big data, predictive modelling and data-mining. It allows hospitals and clinics to improve bed rotation, optimize patient control and increase the geographical coverage of specialists.
At the same time, it allows insurance companies to better manage their clients’ health needs, reducing the incidence of medical emergencies and containing costs. BCtA is a global initiative that encourages companies to fight poverty through inclusive business models. It is supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and other international organisations. AccuHealth is also launching a free preventive service, which leverages tele-monitoring technology to involve patients’ family and friends support networks while establishing a healthcare focal point to support the entire network efforts. Its remote monitoring is based on medical evidence and patients’ active involvement: it anticipates disease-related events and treats them according to each patient’s unique health profile, diagnosis and environment, promoting a better quality of life. This model focuses on transferring disease management to patients and providing 24/7 support to respond to crises.
