InTouch Health Expands Telehealth Network & Services for Access to Care Anytime, Anywhere
Santa Barbara, CA, January 27, 2015 – InTouch Health today announced new advances and significant milestones that reinforce its position as the leading telehealth network and services provider for healthcare systems. InTouch Health is expanding its business model from an “acute care clinical services” focus to an enterprise “care anywhere, anytime” model. InTouch Health currently offers a number of clinically designed FDA-cleared devices to support acute care services. InTouch Health is now launching Viewpoint, a software solution that will allow consumer devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops to be used with the InTouch Telehealth Network.
Yulun Wang, PhD, Chairman and CEO, InTouch Health, said, “Our customers have asked us to help them expand beyond their acute care needs to achieve a much broader telehealth strategy. The virtualization of healthcare can transform the industry by improving access and quality while reducing overall costs. InTouch Health is ideally positioned to capitalize on this significant opportunity as telehealth is embraced across the care continuum.”
