SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 25 /CNW/ - Patient Home Monitoring (PHM) (TSXV:PHM), a company focused on in-home cardiology healthcare services, today announced an agreement to use Standing Stone, Inc.'s in-home coagulation monitoring software application, a module of CoagClinic, as its platform for monitoring patients on Coumadin and other anti-coagulants.
Standing Stone's CoagClinic coagulation management software is used by hundreds of laboratory and physician clients nationwide which manage hundreds of thousands of patients on anti-coagulants. Standing Stone is the leading supplier of secure, web-based applications that provide decision support tools to health care professionals engaged in disease state management.
"CoagClinic is a leading application used to manage patients by many large cardiology groups and laboratories. Using the CoagClinic in-home module as a platform gives PHM an industry leading application which is familiar to many of our potential clients," said Michael Dalsin, Chairman of Patient Home Monitoring. "PHM is focused on providing a high level of service to patients and physicians in an efficient and cost effective manner. As part of completing the launch phase of the business, PHM continues to add the necessary tools to build a world class business."
Additionally, in reviewing PHM's launch of the business, it has been determined that Michael Dalsin will serve as interim Chief Financial Officer rather than Ed Berenblum.
PHM is a healthcare services company focused on providing in-home testing for patients on blood thinner medications such as Coumadin or warfarin. Medicare recently expanded reimbursement for in-home patient self testing (PST) of blood coagulation levels. PHM has a unique value proposition to cardiology groups that manage patients on blood thinners, focusing on systemization of enrolling patients in PST. This unique, systemized approach creates an opportunity for physician groups to operate more efficiently, while providing a higher standard of care for patients.
