RightCare Solutions announced the launch of RightCare Touch, an app designed to make it easier to stay in touch with patients after discharge, ensure they’re recovering properly with their personalized care plan, and prevent unnecessary post-acute care services and re-admissions.
The app is available now for Apple iOS devices and Google Android devices, and can be used at the time of discharge or after discharge.
This allows clinicians, outpatient nurses, or case managers to create a customized, patient-specific checklist of four to five questions about medication taken, drowsiness and sleep quality, daily weight, and more.
Getting a physical is a pain. Wouldn’t it be nicer if you didn’t have to give up two vials of blood and wait a few weeks to find out if there’s something horribly wrong with your body? What if instead you could run 100 tests with just a single drop of blood? That’s the (admittedly long-tail) goal of Graphene Frontiers, a Philadelphia-based company that has developed nanoscale sensors using single-atom-thick graphene sheets. The end result is biosensors that can individually detect key markers like cardiac stress proteins, and which are small enough to be combined into diagnostic chips that could perform dozens of tests at once.
