Amdocs launches new cloud-based eHealth solutionsComtex News Network
Nov 02, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --Amdocs Limited, a provider of customer experience systems and services, has launched two new cloud-based solutions, Amdocs Home Health Monitoring and Amdocs' solution for Aging in Place, to provide support for in-home management and monitoring of elderly and chronically-ill patients.
The solutions enable service providers to enter the expanding eHealth market while helping families, healthcare providers and governments reduce costs by keeping patients out of hospitals and allowing them to recover and age safely in their homes.
Amdocs Home Health Monitoring provides a secure portal for patients and doctors/care practitioners that can be accessed from remote monitoring centers. Amdocs Home Health Monitoring can monitor multiple chronic diseases, collect personal health records, analyze patients' home test results and send necessary alerts to healthcare practitioners.
Amdocs' solution for Aging in Place allows service providers to offer a secure, web-based monitoring solution for the elderly, giving relatives and other caregivers remote access to monitoring devices to help the elderly live independently, longer. By combining readily-available third-party products such as monitor cameras, panic buttons, door locks, motion sensors and smoke detectors with healthcare accessories, such as pill dispensers, weight scales, blood pressure readers, glucose monitors for diabetes and fall detection systems, Amdocs' solution for Aging in Place delivers a full remote monitoring solution for the elderly.
Both solutions are device- and protocol-agnostic, which enables communication capable health accessories to relay data to smartphones, tablets or other home gateway equipment, which then sends the collected data to the Amdocs cloud.
The solutions are pre-integrated with Amdocs Connected Home solution, a cloud-based offering that provides a rich suite of digital lifestyle home services allowing for market expansion into other home services (security, automation, energy, multimedia). The solutions also easily integrate to the service provider's existing business, operational and customer management systems to ensure an improved customer experience.
"These new Amdocs eHealth solutions reflect the growing importance of cloud-based services and Amdocs' innovation in this area. Offered as SaaS (Software as a Service), these solutions enable service providers to benefit from fast time-to-market and cost efficiencies," said Rebecca Prudhomme, vice president for product and solutions marketing at Amdocs. "These solutions harness our expertise in business, operational and customer care system integration, and high-volume event processing to deliver secure solutions that can enable service providers to offer a packaged suite of revenue-generating2 home services."http://www.datamonitor.comRepublication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means,is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
