According to a statement emailed to MHW on Friday, iHealthHome has partnered with investigators at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center on the study entitled “Integrating a Telemonitoring Device into the Outpatient Management of Adult Patients Following Intensive Chemotherapy for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and High-Grade Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS): A Randomized Pilot Study,” which concluded that “Integrating a telemonitoring device into outpatient management of AML/MDS patients is feasible, well-received by patients and providers, and provides valuable, potentially actionable medical information.”

“Healthcare is moving rapidly to the home,” says Dew-Anne Langcaon, co-founder and CEO of iHealthHome. “Our mission is to provide a software platform and tools to enable providers to perform comprehensive care management for medically complex and elderly patients in their own home.
