PLANO, Texas, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Breezie, a multitiered tablet-based platform that drives senior engagement and compliance, announced this week that it has been acquired by VitalTech, a rapidly growing market leader in connected care, digital health and remote patient monitoring.
"We are excited about this next stage of evolution for Breezie," says Jeh Kazimi, founder of Breezie. "Breezie has been pioneering resident and patient engagement across UK, US and Australia. Senior care organizations across the care continuum have leveraged Breezie's open platform to integrate many aspects of care delivery for their senior users. These care providers have been demanding a seamless integration into health monitoring and patient care. With VitalTech's VitalCare platform, we are now able to serve this critical customer and market need in a comprehensive manner."
Breezie's current tablet capabilities will be augmented by the addition of VitalTech's proprietary VitalCare™ platform. Together, senior patients will have a more robust and comprehensive solution for real-time care, including modules for monitoring vital signs, Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), medication reminders, nutrition intake and communication tools for interacting with care teams remotely. Collection of vitals is done through Bluetooth-enabled low energy medical devices. VitalCare also enables telemedicine video calls for remote health visits and virtual check-ins, reducing unnecessary visits to the emergency room or physician's office.
"The strategic acquisition of Breezie will further our ability to meet the needs of long-term, post-acute, home health and senior patients, all from the ease of a user-friendly tablet specifically built to serve their needs, irrespective of their technical capabilities," said James Hamilton, Chief Executive Officer at VitalTech.
"Engagement is critical for quality of care. We know that the more they use our system for activities of daily living, such as checking the weather or sending messages to loved ones, the more they will also use it to talk with their physician or record their medications or nutrition."
