DIVERSINET GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE PARTNER IS ANNOUNCING ALLONE MOBILE(SM) TO PROVIDE ARMY'S "WOUNDED WARRIORS" WITH ELECTRONIC SUPPORT SYSTEM; MOBILE LINK TO CAREGIVERS AIMS TO IMPROVE QUALITY OF CARE, SPEED RECOVERY
Through AllOne Mobile, a health information management application provided by AllOne Health and secured by Diversinet Corp., secure, two-way mobile technology will link soldiers returning home with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other significant injuries recuperating at home with their case managers and unit support staff.
The United States military is launching this pilot telehealth outreach program to better track their progress.
AllOne Mobile's system will give injured service members access to case managers and other military staff who will monitor and stay in touch with soldiers through personalized encrypted messages.
Data received from soldiers will help to better personalize and monitor daily care. Initially, AllOne Mobile's platform is anticipated to support the rehabilitation needs of up to 10,000 returning soldiers in a phased implementation over the next year.
"We are proud to be selected to help improve the care received by the injured men and women of the U.S. Army," said William C. Reed, president and chief executive officer of AllOne Health.
"By speeding the recovery of veterans with injuries, we hope to express our appreciation for their sacrifices made on behalf of our country. We are pleased these wounded warriors will share in the innovative benefits of AllOne Mobile, which we believe provides a compelling model for how to improve health care delivery in the U.S."
AllOne Mobile offers robust security of patient data through a partnership with Diversinet. This high level of security and control gives users the confidence and comfort to create, manage and enhance their health information quickly and easily, simply by pushing a few buttons on their mobile phones.
AllOne Health will also connect AllOne Mobile with Microsoft HealthVault to enable subscribers to share health information about themselves and family members with physicians, hospitals, urgent and emergency care facilities, and other trusted third parties. Coupled with AllOne Health's programs and services to help keep employees, health plan members and their families healthy and safe, the initiative will empower individuals and can help improve medical outcomes.
