Zyter, Inc., a leading digital health and IoT-enablement platform, will unveil the integration of the TruCare care management solution with the company’s clinical solutions for telehealth and remote patient monitoring (RPM) on the ZyterHealth platform at HIMSS 2021 (August 9-13, Las Vegas).

Value-based healthcare demands better collaboration between providers and payers. In 2021, Zyter acquired Casenet’s TruCare population health management solution, a complete enterprise solution spanning care management, utilization management, as well as appeals and grievances. The result: deep integration of patient EHR data, telehealth services, remote patient monitoring, and care coordination data on the secure ZyterHealth collaboration platform. Now, physicians and care coordinators share and access physiological and social patient data across disparate systems to gain the same 360-degree view of each patient’s healthcare experience. Working together with comprehensive patient analytics, care teams can more quickly identify at-risk patients and respond to possible emergent situations before they require ER visits or hospital readmissions. As such, they can improve patient outcomes and increase patient satisfaction.

PET, PET imaging, PET-CT, FDG PET, PET cancer assessment, pet scanner, nuclear imaging, molecular imaging

A PET-CT head and neck cancer scan showing various image reconstructions. The top left image is the separate CT scan showing the anatomy. The top right scan shows the fused PET and CT scans with false color added to help interpret the image. The bottom left scan is an initial FDG PET image showing tracer hot spots in the neck and a lymph node in the right jaw due to cancer. The right bottom image is a delayed enhancement scan showing tracer uptake over time, with normal hot spots in the bladder, kidneys, testicles and brain, which normally have higher metabolic activity. The low-grade gray shading of the anatomy is due to the normal cellular metabolism uptake of the FDG throughout the body.
