Redox, the company driving interoperability in healthcare, has announced a partnership with Spire Health, the leading digital healthcare company for respiratory remote patient monitoring (RPM). Together, Spire Health and Redox will integrate RPM data into health system electronic medical records (EMRs) to improve both billing and clinical effectiveness. As a result, providers can now visualize Spire patient data directly in their EMR allowing respiratory RPM to function as a seamless extension of their organization.
According to the American Lung Association (ALA), there are more than 24 million American adults living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other health issues related to respiratory function. There is no treatment for COPD, and this progressive disease can result in frequent hospital admissions due to common aggravations. Spire Health’s platform offers providers a way to see early changes in patient condition so they can proactively intervene to prevent hospitalization.
“As Spire continues to expand our customer base and patient numbers across the US, the invaluable data our sensors capture is increasingly driving decision making in pulmonary practices,” said Phil Golz, VP of Commercial, Spire Health. “It is important that this rich clinical data is easily accessible to healthcare providers so that they can better understand their patients’ health and make timely decisions to improve outcomes. Partnering with Redox means that we can make Spire data available to almost every pulmonary physician through the patient’s chart, which is a huge step forward and a milestone in our company history.”
“Since respiratory illness has come to the forefront over the past couple years, it’s become more of an imperative that patients have access to the best solutions for managed respiratory care,” explains Redox Director of Product Brandon Gardner. “Spire Health and Redox streamline the flow of key clinical, financial, and administrative information between patients, technology, and providers. This integration ensures that pulmonologists can offer RPM without adding any extra burden or time to their busy staff.”
