Minneapolis-based American TeleCare (ATI) Inc., a provider of video-enhanced telehealth solutions, announced that it has been selected by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) as a supplier to support the VA’s telehealth program. ATI, which received one of six national contracts the VA awarded, was also chosen to provide telehealth technology with real-time video capability.

The depth and detail of ATI’s clinical content are at the heart of its solutions. ATI has expertise in developing condition-specific modules that include monitoring protocols, direct care plans, self-care guidance, and patient education templates. Care teams can modify instructions and education for individual patients.

ATI supports the VA with its most advanced telehealth solution: miLife. Built upon a single modular, extensible platform, miLife offers real-time video telehealth capability together with remote monitoring. The system combines narrated instructions with answer verification, multi-media instructions on use of peripheral diagnostic devices, and on-screen volume and navigation controls to provide ease of use. In between video visit sessions, veterans take and transmit vital sign readings and other physiological measurements with integrated devices, answer self-assessment questions, and receive educational information about their disease. ATI’s question set content encompasses the medical, nursing, physiological and pharmacological domains and includes collection of contextual information to interpret patient information. With miLife, no matter how far they may live from a VA clinic or hospital, veterans can have the assurance that their care team is keeping watch over their health and standing ready to reach out to them with video visits and just-in-time care.
