Health Hero Network Introduces Disease Management Solutions in Europe at eHealth Conference
Brussels, Belgium (ots) - Universite Louis Pasteur Strasbourg Invited to Demonstrate Health Hero Network Technology at 'The Contribution of ICT to Health' Ministerial Conference and Exhibition 22-23 May -- Brussels
Health Hero Network, Ltd. was selected with Universite Louis Pasteur (ULP) Strasbourg to present its Health Buddy(R) in-home health monitoring technology and Internet solutions for disease management today at "The Contribution of ICT to Health," a high-level ministerial conference and exhibition sponsored by the European Commission to promote advances in health care enabled by information and communications technology (ICT). Representatives from ULP and other affiliated European solution providers will join Health Hero Network at the event in stand F1-05. The Health Hero® technology solutions to be presented in Brussels include the Health Buddy® in-home monitoring and communications devices for patients and the iCare Desktop web-based care management tools and services for care providers. The Health Hero approach has been demonstrated to educate patients, improve medication compliance, and detect and prevent problems before they become acute for a range of chronic conditions including heart failure, diabetes, hypertension, pulmonary disease, and asthma. ULP will discuss a new application of the Health Hero platform for post-transplant care management to be demonstrated through its transplantation center in Strasbourg.
"The model of care enabled by Health Hero Network allows physicians to replace patient isolation and crisis with continuous communications and support, which we believe will increase quality of life for patients and improve outcomes for post-transplant patients as it has done for other serious conditions," commented Jacques Cinqualbre, MD, a member of ULP Strasbourg's transplantation team and leader of the Health Hero implementation at ULP.
In addition to the implementation at ULP in France, Health Hero Network is introducing its technology in Europe through a growing network of solution providers. Solution providers attending the conference include Abbey Healthcare, Ltd., a leading Irish medication compliance management company, and Sananet B.V., an eHealth company offering information and communication technology products and services to improve the quality of health and social services in the Netherlands. Health Hero Network, Ltd., based in Dublin, Ireland, is the European affiliate of Health Hero Network, Inc., in Mountain View, California.
"We look forward to meeting leaders in European government and industry to discussing how information and communications technology can cost-effectively modernize the healthcare delivery system to better serve people with chronic conditions," noted Steve Brown, Health Hero Network President and CEO. "Health Hero Network will continue to partner with leading innovators in Europe to advance chronic care to deal with the increasing demands resulting from an aging population."
