SAN DIEGO & BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - February 23, 2015 - Kyocera Communications Inc., North America's leading supplier of ruggedized mobile devices, and Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: ADAT), a provider of secure web-based software applications and telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced that they have completed interoperability testing on an integrated mobile healthcare solution for remote patient monitoring.
The goal of the interoperability testing is to combine Kyocera's market-leading expertise in hardware development, manufacturing and product fulfillment with Authentidate's software and command of healthcare business process workflow. Implementing Authentidate's InscrybeMD remote patient monitoring application on the Kyocera Brigadier, a ruggedized, wireless mobile device, potentially creates a powerful, cost-effective tool for healthcare providers to set up tailored monitoring sessions of patient health with fewer in-person doctor or emergency-room visits. Providers could use the remote patient monitoring solution to manage patients who have chronic diseases such as Diabetes, Hypertension, Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and a number of behavioral health conditions. It also could be used to manage wellness programs and other programs such as weight management and tobacco cessation.
Authentidate software and services are already used by numerous commercial and government healthcare providers. Kyocera is the nation's leading manufacturer of rugged mobile devices. The ruggedized and waterproof Kyocera Brigadier smartphone, which is certified to Military Standard 810G and IP68, provides a durable and dependable wireless device to facilitate the secure mobile delivery of the patient data.
"Completing this interoperability testing creates the potential for an integrated solution that would allow healthcare organizations to leverage not only Authentidate's deep software-design and services experience and extensive relationships within the healthcare market, but also Kyocera's proven expertise in durable hardware engineering, longstanding relationships with wireless service providers and nationwide infrastructure for distribution, service and support," said Hiroshi Funatogawa, president of Kyocera Communications.
"We believe that together, Authentidate and Kyocera could provide a mobility solution that combines best-in-class software and hardware to meet the healthcare industry's unique requirements while enabling the proven, practical benefits for patients and providers that telehealth offers," said Ian C. Bonnet, Chief Executive Officer at Authentidate.
