Withings range of clinically-validated, connected health devices are now compatible with most Electronic Health Record (EHR) solutions
BOSTON — January 5, 2021—Withings, early pioneers of the connected health revolution, today announced it has partnered with Redox, a single, secure API endpoint that connects and integrates provider EHRs with healthcare products and services. The partnership makes MED·PRO CARE, the unique Withings remote patient monitoring solution, compatible with nearly all EHRs used by physicians, hospitals, and medical institutions.
“During the pandemic, the importance of remote patient monitoring soared. However, for its long term success and utilization to be assured, it must be simple for both physicians and their patients,” said Mathieu Letombe, CEO of Withings. “Our partnership with Redox means Withings now integrates into practically every EHR system allowing physicians and hospitals to easily send Withings devices to their patients and access insights into their daily blood pressure, weight, sleep patterns, heart rates, and more. With Redox’s one connection and our range of devices, designed to easily integrate into patients’ everyday lives, the entire process is effortless for all involved, and many of the common frictions associated with remote patient monitoring are removed.”
Withings MED·PRO CARE is a unique market solution that overcomes many pain points associated with remote patient monitoring faced by both patients and physicians. Patients benefit from beautifully designed devices that require little to no set up to fit effortlessly into their daily lives. In fact, thanks to the Withings Data HUB, a plug and play cellular gateway created specifically for Withings MED·PRO solutions, health providers can even deliver devices to patients that require no set up or daily management at all.
Through the partnership, physicians can now order and ship Withings clinically-validated connected health devices directly to their patients through their EHR in just a few simple steps. Patients can use their Withings devices to monitor and track their health in their traditional home environments while their physicians access and analyze their data seamlessly through Redox. The solution is HIPAA compliant and uses HL7 international standards.
“Withings has one of the largest portfolios of medically-validated connected health devices available, as well as some of the highest user retention rates in the industry. With our partnership, physicians can easily send Withings devices to their patients and seamlessly monitor them remotely to gain valuable insights on daily habits and vitals,” said Niko Skievaski, co-founder and president, Redox. “Having access to the data Withings’ devices produces not only helps clinicians identify serious issues during telehealth visits but also improves long-term patient outcomes.”
