Below is our recent interview with Dana Citron, Chief Marketing Officer at Somml Health:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Somml Health is a virtual care platform that keeps patients at home through remote early detection, coordinated care interventions, and transparent caregiver involvement.
At our core, we are on a mission to help move health care from an impersonal transactional experience to a team-based whole person care continuum by connecting the entire patient ecosystem.
Our secure, HIPAA-compliant platform combined with disease-specific care services does this by creating a real-time, virtual care connected bridge across family members, caregivers, health care teams and community services that results in shared decision-making, increased patient self-activation and family involvement, as well as clinical, administrative, and technical workload relief for providers.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Yes, by partnering with Cardiac RMS to offer disease-specific care services, together we extend continuous, virtual whole person health into the patient’s home using our platform as the technology backbone, and offer clinical, administrative, and technical workload relief to providers.
Cardiac RMS has an extensive track record delivering meaningful, caring connections that providers can comfortably consider an extension of their practice, creating better health outcomes and a stronger connection with their physicians.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: The Virtual Care Platform with specialized care services delivers a fresh approach to remote care by virtually connecting the entire patient ecosystem, which has demonstrable results for the patient, but delivers better outcomes for everyone:
For Patients: A personalized relationship and meaningful whole-health experience that results in reduced hospitalizations and ED encounters.
For Families: More involvement and transparency into loved one’s care, and less disruption due to rehospitalizations.
For Providers: A Digital Front Door, efficiently extending continuous whole person health care oversight into the patient’s home while delivering compelling practice economics.
For Community Based Organizations (CBOs): Whether delivering food or offering transportation, community services can be a critical component to a person’s health. Real-time communication and interactions increase continuity of care delivery and workflow efficiency.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We continue to grow our list of providers that choose Somml Health and Cardiac RMS as their Virtual Care and care services platform. We also continue to gain visibility through opportunities like the Boston Scientific Connected Patient Challenge, of which we’ve been selected as a semi-finalist.
Beyond that we continue our work to build our network of community services providers that want to be connected to be able to better support people in their communities in need.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Kurt Lozier co-founded Somml Health after a family medical crisis opened his eyes to the frustratingly segmented nature of the current healthcare system. So that others might have a different experience, his concept of a Digital Health Neighborhood continues to be realized through Somml Health.
