Ahead of the weekend, mHealthWatch learned that MobileHelp, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS) and healthcare technology solutions, is rolling out its newest base station.
The offering in question is billed as being a tablet format that blends the safety benefits of a medical alert system with the added benefits of telehealth technology and video conferencing.
It’s available for healthcare providers through select pilot programs.
The new base station is the first medical alert system with an interactive touchscreen — which features the company’s MobileVitals® telehealth solution for both patients and providers — as well as unique ways for providers to engage with their patients, and for patients to engage more fully in their own health and well-being.

In its stated mission to “power the business of healthcare,” this past week at HIMSS 2017, the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference, PokitDok announced it has made its solution available on AWS Marketplace.
As an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Technology Partner, PokitDok is available immediately on AWS Marketplace in the recently launched Healthcare & Life Sciences category. Customers using AWS as their secure cloud for compute power now have access to a toolset for developing digital health applications.
“As the only industry that skipped the Internet, healthcare is now 20 years behind as it rushes to respond to cost pressures, an uncertain regulatory environment and growing security concerns,” said Lisa Maki, co-founder and CEO of PokitDok. “Centralized, on-premise systems can be vulnerable. Shifting to AWS allows the industry to both satisfy compliance requirements and leapfrog to the future. Launching in the AWS Marketplace with the first ever ‘one click’ healthcare clearinghouse is a historic step forward in health IT. This is a key part of our partner distribution strategy to broaden access to our API solutions and drive innovation in healthcare.”
