The launch of its Fruit Street Wellness Clinic solution, a new telemedicine platform was announced for healthcare providers by Fruit Street Health (Fruit Street).
The new product has been designed specifically for healthcare providers to monitor the lifestyle of their patients and conduct virtual consultations on Fruit Street's HIPAA compliant FDA-registered video solution.
Leading wearable technologies such as FitBit, Withings, Jawbone UP, iHealth Labs, and the upcoming Apple iWatch will be integrated with this solution.
Clinicians will be able to monitor lifestyle data from their patients such as sleep, exercise, diet, weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose data.
The alert system will also send notifications to healthcare providers when patients don't exercise enough, sleep too little, gain weight, or skimping on their fruit and vegetable intake.
The Fruit Street Wellness Clinic solution is available in the form of a desktop application, and allows healthcare providers to share their screen and review this data with their patients during video calls.
The solution also allows the providers to document the proceedings with each patient. Online payment for consultation, schedule for virtual consults, Fruit Street Food Diary feature are the other features of the solution.
The Food Diary feature enables dietitians to see exactly what their patients are eating in real-time in a centralized dashboard.
"We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Fruit Street Wellness Clinic solution. Our engineers, designers, management team and investors have worked tirelessly over the past several months to build a technology platform that fills a critical void in the wellness space, and helps dietitians and physicians expand their reach and improve their offerings to current and prospective patients. This is an important first step as we gear up to announce more technology launches and upgrades in the coming months that appeal not only to the dietitian and physician community, but also to other practice specialists, as well as healthcare providers and everyday patients" said Laurence Girard, Founder and CEO of Fruit Street Health.
