SMITHTOWN, N.Y., May 8, 2018 (Globe Newswire) iGambit, Inc. (OTCBB: IGMB) is pleased to announce that the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, HealthDatix, has entered into a contract with Winpoint Health, LLC. Winpoint Health is a New York based chronic care management service company that monitors patients between office visits by leveraging, both first in-class technology and a fully trained clinical team of healthcare professionals.
It’s a known fact that 80% of Medicare beneficiaries have multiple chronic conditions and that over 71 cents of every healthcare dollar spend in the US is spent on those with multiple chronic conditions. By implementing an effective technology driven oversight and compliance program the companies can drastically reduce the number of hospitalization rates, rehospitalization rates and augment nursing home placement. This approach will also greatly reduce and overall medical spending.
HealthDatix’s WellDatix Annual Wellness Visit provides a comprehensive preventive care plan including all the preventive screening and services a patient requires to maintain a healthy, balanced life. By using both HealthDatix’s superior “Medicare recommended care plan” and Winpoint Health’s “care managers” to execute first in-class patient care delivery, we can ensure the patient is on track for reduced chronic condition episodes while lowering their cost of care.
The new frontier of healthcare requires team-based care where multiple healthcare providers offer a more focused and comprehensive patient-centered delivery model. This value-based model requires at risk healthcare providers to purchase outside services through partners with technology like the HealthDatix-Winpoint Health programs. This improves healthcare outcomes for the patient, and at the same time, reduces overall medical costs.
Additionally, the HealthDatix passive monitoring wearable will be paired with the FDA approved Electronic House as an additional, leading edge, digital patient monitoring program for the Winpoint Health chronic care program and we anticipate it to be fully deployed by end of next quarter.
