Our Process & Technology
ICP’s technology is based on our proprietary model. It uses low-cost, high-powered computer hardware – tablets and smartphones as well as Windows notebooks – coupled with an innovative software architecture. That flexible architecture is capable of supporting outpatients with a broad spectrum of clinicians addressing a broad spectrum of medical conditions and diseases. And the architecture is strongly patient-centered, meaning that it is highly personalized to the patient, and enables shared decision-making. Personalizing the software also makes it intuitive to each patient along their course of treatment.
The technology addresses the needs of the facility in competitive environments where products are fundamentally the same. Facilities compete primarily on a basis of location and image. Most patients do well with in-clinic therapy. But there are a considerable number who can do better with telemedicine, and these people will often have more complex cases.
Hospital-to-Home Telemedicine Session™ enables a facility to differentiate its products based on customer convenience, on state-of-the-art technology, and on clinical and financial outcomes. This provides a rich set of advantages for all stakeholders involved.
The Hospital-to-Home Telemedicine Sessions™ process makes sense to the patient with and the patient’ loved ones. It makes sense to be treated at home so that clinicians can observer the home environment and gain a better understanding of the patient. It makes sense to them to use the patient’s activities in their environment as the context for therapy. It makes sense to them to use highly personalized software that is intuitive the patient. And for patients who have had difficulty with in-clinic therapy, making the change to telemedicine is confirmed by seeing concrete rapid progress.
