Robertson Global Health Solutions Announces Release of RHealth Advisor Mobile Web(July 20, 2011)
SAGINAW, Mich., July 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Robertson Global Health Solutions Corporation (OTCBB:RHSC) has introduced its latest technological advancement, RHealth Advisor Mobile Web. The new offering performs pre-screening, delivers treatment advice, and powers low-cost, widely accessible healthcare applications at the convenience of a mobile phone. Robertson Global Health Solutions is creating collaboration partners and working with licensees to commercialize the solution into a variety of markets worldwide.
"Empowerment through information is one of the greatest "levers" in extending access to healthcare in underserved communities. RHealth provides a real, cost effective and simple to use ability to empower the public, community caregivers, nursing professionals, pharmacists, paramedics and even physicians, providing them with advice, therapeutic recommendations and referral guidance."
Dr. Iain Barton, CEO of the RTT Group and President of the Pharmaceutical Logistic Association of South Africa
RHealth Advisor currently runs on laptops and PCs over the web, and now with RHealth Advisor Mobile Web, it can be accessed via simple browser-enabled phones, all with a medical record that can be shared across platforms. The offering is designed to deliver pre-screening and treatment advice to consumers, health workers, nurses, and doctors. Using its award winning technology, RHealth Advisor evaluates patients and provides treatment recommendations for the condition. The new, easy-to-use mobile web application, available on a wide variety of mobile phones, provides the most convenient and innovative access to evidence-based health advice available on the market today. The user simply inputs his or her symptoms redefined by an artificial intelligence engine producing suggested findings, labs or tests to consider, and not only possible but probable conditions displayed in order of importance through an intuitive interface. Users can view a bar that displays the application's confidence of the presented condition. If low, RHealth Advisor provides suggested symptoms to consider or refers the patient to the clinic or hospital, allowing someone that has the proper credentials to validate and treat the condition. In rural areas, this relieves the burden on local hospitals and clinics by utilizing health workers or lesser skilled providers to treat patients at the source.
The treatment recommendations go through a regionalized process that is authored within a proprietary content management system. Different treatments and next steps are provided depending on who is using the system, the severity of condition, the level of authentication, resources available, and geographic location. As a result of RHealth Advisor's capability to regionalize data, the use scenario across every market is enormous.
Doctors and specialists can use the system as a tool to mine the enormous amount of data for a given case, validate decisions, and detect rare, uncommon diseases. Confidence indicators are useful to determine whether it is effective and efficient to run certain tests. As a result, RHealth Advisor assists medical specialists in developed and rural settings to make better, more informed decisions when providing care.
Consumers using the system are able to screen for conditions to know if, when and how quickly they need to go to the hospital, and are able to retrieve the latest medical information consistent with evidence-based medical research.
"[RHealth Advisor is the] leader in taking data about health and creating very rich, interactive dynamic diagnostic and tracking tools for health scenarios".
Amit Mital, Corporate VP Microsoft Startup Business Group
RHealth Advisor Mobile Web automatically adapts and conforms to the capabilities and form factors of a wide variety of mobile phones on the market today. It does this by detecting the type of mobile web browser that is being used and adjusting the user experience accordingly. The offering takes advantage of the advanced web browser capabilities of smart phone platforms such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7, while at the same time remaining accessible to lower-end feature phones with less-capable browsers and smaller form factors.
"With the introduction of RHealth Advisor Mobile Web, we now have a compelling solution that can be rapidly deployed with strategic and collaboration partners in developing and emerging countries, to decrease costs, expand the reach of health professionals, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of overburdened rural clinics and hospitals. In developed nations we offer the benefits of mining patient data faster, reducing over and under use of resources, reducing unnecessary testing and referrals, improved entry into the system, improved diagnostic accuracy, improved encounter capacity of primary care, and improved patient involvement. I am very pleased by the response we are receiving from prospective partners. Our vision is to break down barriers of access to the most basic needs, while enabling a more productive and sustainable health system for all."
Dr. Joel Robertson Founder and CEO of Robertson Global Health Solutions
RHealth Advisor has been tested in rural parts of Kenya, the Congo, Ghana, Latin America, and India. Its ability to diagnose accurately has been studied and endorsed. The results were outstanding – accurate enough to take minimally trained nurses and make them agree with collaborating physicians 81% of the time. Without RHealth Advisor, they only agreed 54% of the time. Additionally, it was nominated for an artificial intelligence award by Microsoft.
Robertson Global Health Solutions continues to innovate to meet the demands of the global market with its state-of-the-art mobile health solution and is creating collaborations to commercialize its solutions worldwide. Additional product enhancements are anticipated to be released in early August.
