Californian care experience platform Carium is improving health outcomes for patients with chronic conditions and increasing healthcare accessibility through Alio’s remote patient monitoring platform.

Carium delivers virtual care technology. Within one, ecosystem, the end-to-end care journey is said to be actionable, personalised and efficient for care teams and the people they serve. The company has a number of existing customers within the healthcare landscape including major health systems, independent hospitals, physician organisations, payors and virtual health delivery innovators.

Colorado-based Alio is an FDA cleared, non-invasive and multimetric remote patient monitoring platform consisting of the wearable SmartPatch, hub, and clinician-facing portal. While patients go about their daily lives, the technology captures clinical-grade data and wirelessly transmits actionable insights, predictive analytics, and notifications to clinical care teams.

The SmartPatch uses proprietary technology to capture metrics including potassium, haematocrit, haemoglobin, auscultation and skin temperature.

“We are thrilled to partner with Carium, a forward-thinking organisation equally committed to achieving better health outcomes through personalised patient care and an exceptional user experience,” said David Kuraguntla, CEO of Alio. “We are also aligned by our mutual belief in the importance of increasing access to care. With a growing number of Americans living with one or more chronic conditions, there is a need for tools which allow them to better manage their condition outside of the traditional clinical setting. This partnership will help get our technologies into the hands of those who need it and ensure it is a seamless experience.”

Alio’s remote patient monitoring platform will be available through commercial agreements made directly with Alio as well as through Carium’s network. Partnering with Carium should accelerate Alio’s go-to-market strategy. The partnership will make it possible for Alio to reach more patients at a faster pace.

“Since our inception we have been focused on helping patients, caregivers and clinicians navigate our country’s complex healthcare system,” said Rich Steinle, CEO of Carium. “And, it’s not enough just to navigate the system, we also need to be collectively committed to achieving better health outcomes. Alio’s technology together with Carium has the power to engage patients and dramatically reduce the number of adverse health events while also driving down costs for the system as a whole. Through this partnership, we intend to make their technology more widely available so it can have an even greater impact for vulnerable patient populations.”

Alio uses its SmartPatch technology to monitor individuals with end stage kidney disease (ESKD) undergoing dialysis. The platform uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyse data and create actionable insights. These insights enable targeted interventions with the potential for improved health outcomes and reduced hospitalisations.

Carium’s virtual care platform empowers patients and their caregivers while providing their clinicians with real-time, aggregated health data and analytics that can scale to multiple clinical programmes.
