Leawood, Kansas. October 10, 2017— LifeScience Technologies, based in Leawood, Kansas, announced today the launch of its new m.Care website and associated social media accounts. The launch coincides with the announcement of two successful years of m.Care powering the world’s first virtual hospital for Mercy Virtual in St. Louis, Missouri.
“We are very excited to launch our platform’s digital presence via an engaging and information website, and our suite of social media accounts. Together, they are focused on educating the public on the quickly changing telemedicine and teletherapy industries, and the qualities of our m.Care platform that is transforming patient care,” said Steve Hendrix, President of LifeScience Technologies.
“What makes m.Care different are 50-plus applets that provide amazing depth and breadth of utility for both the care team and the patient. We also built in inherent flexibility to create the exact platform required by our diverse client base. We enable round-the-clock access between the patient and his or her care team. No matter where they might be in the world, their specialists are one touch away.”
“I would like to add I believe our team’s commitment to focusing on a patient-first solution is helping our clients provide the healthcare landscape of the future,” Hendrix continued.
The results are impressive. At Mercy Virtual, m.Care has enabled over a 50% reduction in readmissions, and an overall cost savings of 32%. At Medically Home, a provider that empowers critical care patients to enjoy a quality of life at home while maintaining 24/7 access to their care team, results mirror those of Mercy Virtual.
Working closely with medical and behavioral health care industry leaders, LifeScience Technologies created m.Care in 2012. The platform has been refined consistently based on care providers’ input and patient user experiences. Today, m.Care technology powers not only Mercy’s Virtual Care Center and Medically Home, but research arms for leading hospitals like the Kansas University Medical Center and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. m.Care also works with leading treatment providers in the mental health and eating disorder space to provide a HIPAA-compliant platform.
“m.Care gives us the flexibility cover any population, anytime. m.Care is very patient-focused, and that matches what Mercy wants to do. Their platform is above others in terms of being able to use it for all groups: physicians, practitioners, nurses, navigators and, or course, our patient population. It allows the flexibility for future growth which we need,” said Mark Saxon, Vice President of Clinical Operations, Mercy Virtual.
Rami Karjian, the COO of Medically Home recently explained why m.Care was selected to power their care platform among many suitors. “We chose m.Care from many other options because m.Care deeply understands the need for blending of the humanist care with technology. Other companies wanted us to focus on their technology and expected us to conform with their approach to care. m.Care has amazing technology, but they understood the need to work closely with us to create a platform that worked exactly for our care team and our patient population.”
m.Care today also launched its social platforms:
