Lenovo introduced Lenovo Virtual Care, a patient-to-provider virtual solution to remotely monitor and educate patients with chronic health conditions.
Lenovo Virtual Care combines Lenovo hardware with advanced biometric devices and AI-powered software to virtually coach patients through their individualized care plan and drive better overall outcomes.
Virtual Care joins the recently launched Virtual Rounding as part of Lenovo’s growing portfolio of Virtual Health solutions to accelerate intelligent transformation in healthcare.
Clinicians using Lenovo Virtual Care provide patients with a customizable, in-home technology kit equipped with a digital assistant, “Rosie”, that guides the patient through an individualized, daily care plan incorporating patient education, behavior modification and family engagement.
Lenovo said providers prescribe the use of the service and pre-configure the easy-to-use kit, allowing patients to plug it in at home and immediately start following their individualized care plan.
Lenovo’s Virtual Care solution allows clinicians to assess and engage with enrolled patients, reducing the need of multiple in-person visits and readmissions. Patients use in-home biometric devices, such as blood pressure cuffs and glucose monitors, to take their vitals and transmit the data to their care teams.
Health providers can use real-time patient data to respond quickly with timely interventions, adjust medications or modify self-care regimens to help improve patients’ health before they require an in-office visit.
“As the healthcare industry continues to explore new ways to deliver more cost-efficient and high-quality care outside of hospitals and doctors’ offices, we’re launching Lenovo Virtual Care to assist physicians and their teams in providing more personalized care to their patients,” said Ed Gillispie, vice president, North America Public Sector and Healthcare, Lenovo.
