A new telemedicine partnership aims to improve remote patient monitoring programs by capturing vital signs without the need for medical devices.
VSee, the California-based developer of video visit platforms used by Ascension, Intermountain Healthcare, Trinity Health, MDLive and NASA, among others, is joining forces with a telemedicine company whose latest technology captures vital signs through an mHealth app.
Developed by InteloMed, the mCVInsight app uses facial detection and tracking software to capture physiologic data through smartphone sensors. The technology is currently involved in pilot projects aimed at achieving U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval.
