California-based Memora Health is working with digital health platform Impilo so remote monitoring initiatives can evolve to create device-based and deviceless experiences customised to the patient’s care plan.

Memora has a technology platform for virtual care delivery and complex care management. It has announced a partnership with Impilo, a Pennsylvania-based remote digital health device platform that enables health systems to buy, distribute, support and integrate digital health devices. The partnership will be available to health systems and care teams across the USA.

Data show that the number of patients using remote monitoring devices at least once after discharge drops from 83 per cent in the first week to 46 per cent in the fourth week. To allow health systems to maintain and increase patient engagement, this partnership aims to provide patients with devices that allow care teams to customise the type of remote monitoring tool that matches patient needs.

Memora’s SMS-based platform provides health systems and care teams with a scalable method to derive significant value from remote patient monitoring initiatives. The partnership specifically improves signal-to-noise ratio for clinicians, by making data actionable through escalated concerns that can be configured based on patients’ clinical status, disease progression and patient-reported information.

“At Impilo, our mission is to enable the use of devices and supplies for complex virtual care and we’re thrilled to partner with Memora to offer a solution to the unique needs of both patients and health systems to simplify complex care journeys,” said Josh Stein, CEO of Impilo. “Our remote patient monitoring will allow patients to engage with their care teams seamlessly.”

Memora Health helps healthcare organisations digitise and automate care journeys, making complex care delivery simpler for patients and clinicians to navigate. It ingests existing data on clinical workflows, converts them into cohesive messaging that guides patients through their care episodes, and automates the completion of simple follow-up tasks in the EHR. Memora’s platform can reduce care team notifications by nearly 40%, has an average patient NPS over 70, and improves engagement and clinical outcomes across diverse populations. Memora Health is headquartered in San Francisco.

“At Memora, we’re committed to helping care teams support and engage patients inside and outside of hospital walls,” said Omar Nagji, chief commercial officer of Memora Health. “This partnership will allow us to offer health systems access to our digital health platform that matches patient needs and allows patients to stay connected with care teams throughout their entire care journey, using the tools that work best for them.”

Impilo empowers healthcare organisations to start and scale connected device operations in virtual care. It enables the use of remote monitoring devices, supplies and other sensors through a plug-and-play platform that includes logistics, technology-enabled services and API infrastructure to augment virtual and home care offerings.
