Orange CEO, Howard Buff, stated, “As the gap between consumerism and healthcare continues to close, we believe it is critical to position the Orange service platform to take advantage of emerging patient self-monitoring and decision support tools, and direct patient-doctor communication platforms.

Orange plans to integrate ExtendMD assets into its existing platform. The new Orange solution will use the integrated technology to offer patients a way to self-monitor and track common ailments and conditions, and in turn share that data with their primary care physician to facilitate ongoing communications around condition management, both online, and in-person. Both patients and physicians will access the communication and self-tracking features via a shared permission-based and opt-in environment.
ExtendMD uses simple, everyday technologies to increase the communication between patients and doctors dramatically reducing overall healthcare costs and saving lives. The software was developed, in partnership with several of the best medical academic institutions in the world, as an easy way for patients with chronic conditions to communicate their ‘at home’ readings directly to their healthcare team. By converting common technologies already found in patient’s homes into real-time disease management tools, they are able to reduce cost and increase the comfort level for patients to use the healthcare tool. Their doctors have access to this information anywhere, anytime to quickly analyze and determine if a change in treatment is required.
