DrChrono Partners with Lief Therapeutics to Help Physicians Remotely Monitor Patients’ Mental Health as More Visits Go Virtual Due to COVID-19
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, announces new partnership with Lief Therapeutics. Lief provides a discreet, FDA Class II ECG patch that improves the gold standard biomarker for mental health, heart rate variability (HRV), through personalized biofeedback training. In addition, Lief’s virtual behavioral health coaches help extend physician’s care teams through secure, one-on-one patient support through its remote patient monitoring platform.
Lief Therapeutics is now leveraging DrChrono’s Open API to enable providers to seamlessly connect patients to mental health resources. Providers can take advantage of Lief’s plug-and-play model, which determines patient eligibility, ships a Lief device directly to the patient’s door, and assigns them a dedicated behavioral health specialist, all fully remotely.
Lief’s biomarker reports and clinical support services are insurance reimbursable, and automatically integrate with patient’s existing electronic health record (EHR). By giving providers access to patient biomarker data in conjunction with their self report, Lief enables more accurate assessments of patient mental health than ever before.
“With the COVID-19 crisis, we see a dramatic reduction in face-to-face mental health services, as well as an increase in patient symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Lief’s virtual behavioral health coaches and wearable smart patch empower patients to improve their mental health without coming into the clinic,” said Rohan Dixit, CEO and Founder of Lief Therapeutics. “Teaming up with DrChrono allows important biomarker data to become part of the patient’s electronic health record, and gives physicians an innovative tool to add to their telemedicine arsenal so they can improve patients’ mental health remotely.”
“Telemedicine tools right now are critical to physician practices as more appointments in the coming weeks and months go virtual,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono. “It is important for us to partner with breakthrough smart device companies like Lief Therapeutics to arm physicians with real-time data on patients. Wearable device companies are the wave of the future and the fact that this can be done remotely is essential for what’s going on in the world today.”
