CAIRE Inc., a Ball Ground-based oxygen equipment manufacturer, has launched a new app that connects patients with providers of oxygen concentrators.
The company has launched myCAIRE, which connects to CAIRE’s leading concentrators via the patient’s smart device and simplifies remote data collection through a secure, cloud-based technology in real-time.
“It was important to us to have a telehealth solution that connected to CAIRE’s premier oxygen concentrators in the portable, transportable and stationary categories – the full spectrum of oxygen care for patients. Because of this, CAIRE is the only oxygen manufacturer that offers its provider partners a holistic approach to serving the complex healthcare needs of oxygen users during activity or when they are at home,” said Earl Lawson, president and CEO.
The myCAIRE application is available through Android, iOS and Surface platforms, and the portal provides customizable views, filtering and search options to view oxygen usage, flow rates, device notifications, equipment location, and requests sent directly from patients to the provider through the app.
The app will serve providers who administer care to oxygen patients with respiratory conditions, like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), but also those who have been prescribed oxygen as a therapeutic component for recovery from the coronavirus.
“We see the use of telehealth as it applies to oxygen therapy equipment to only expand as adoption increases and access opens up,” said Barry Hassett, vice president of global marketing. “This remote visibility to patient data allows the provider to engage with those patients who require more frequent touchpoints in their case management through personal contact and educational resources – the end result is improved care for patients.”
MyCAIRE can connect wirelessly to the FreeStyle Comfort portable oxygen concentrator, the Eclipse 5 transportable oxygen concentrator, and the Companion 5 stationary oxygen concentrator.
The US launch of myCAIRE will be followed by a global launch throughout the year. For more information, visit https://mycaire.com.
