Exco InTouch, the leading provider of intelligent digital health programmes for healthcare and biopharmaceutical companies, has been recognized for the third year running as an honoree in the Journal of mHealth’s Global Digital Health 100.
The 2016 list – compiled from a combination of nominations and industry research by the publication’s international team – sets out to identify the most innovative and disruptive health technology companies from across the globe that operate in the mobile, digital and connected care industries.
The company, which provides digital services and solutions that support long-term condition management to drive better health outcomes, is firmly established as a market leader and industry authority in digital health. Exco InTouch’s modular approach delivers disease management programmes that support all stakeholders in the care circle including patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals and providers.
This enables the development of tailored, condition-specific care plans for which the most appropriate tools for each individual program are selected – ranging from data capture, education, alerts, goals, progress tracking and patient monitoring through role-based access and reporting. Through this approach, patients are able to learn more about their condition, remain engaged with treatment regimens and ultimately better manage their conditions. Exco InTouch’s digital health platform has already been implemented in key therapeutic areas such as diabetes, dermatology, respiratory diseases and haemophilia.
One such programme is TARGET My Hives, a digital support network bringing together patients, clinicians and patient advocacy groups impacted by chronic urticaria. This online community provides support, increases awareness and reduces the sense of isolation that many sufferers feel.
The programme enables patients to learn how to manage their disease, set goals for themselves and share experiences and results. Moreover, the Me&MyCOPD programme, developed in collaboration with AstraZeneca, enables patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, caregivers and healthcare providers to collect, transmit, track and review clinical data.
Tim Davis, CEO and founder of Exco InTouch, commented: “We are very pleased to be recognized as an honoree on the Digital Health 100 List for the third year running. Securing this award reflects our sustained track record of achievement in this field as well as our continued commitment to improving the healthcare experience for patients everywhere.”
