Healthcare Technology and News: iMetrikus Re-launched as Numera

In a press release, iMetrikus, a provider of telehealth solutions, announced the change of its name as Numera. To spearhead the newly branded company, Tim Smokoff, a leader in the telehealth industry, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer. 

"While the Numera name is new, we will be leveraging iMetrikus' long history of innovation to introduce products and technologies that will allow our customers to make greater strides toward measurably better health at a very affordable price point," Smokoff said in a press release.

 "Accountable care embraces widespread self-management, sharing objective data and enabling timely interventions by professionals - all made possible on a much broader basis by Numera products," Smokoff added.

This new corporate brand, according to the company, reflects its focus on developing high-quality, low-cost methods of collecting objective patient health and biometric data and integrating this into popular electronic medical records, care management, and personal health records.

Also, the company is preparing itself well for the commercial launch of its Numera|NET gateway applications for smartphones which is said to offer a cost effective solution with an FDA-cleared, platform-independent gateway that enables validated and secure transmission of biometric information from a library of market-leading consumer monitoring devices to virtually any health record or care management system. Using Numera|NET, qualified clinical workers can perform advanced analysis, identify health and disease trends and proactively engage with patients to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and recognize improved health outcomes.

In addition to Numera|NET, Numera said it will be rolling out additional products over the coming months that further support the company's platform-independent positioning and broad patient population scalability.

Two additional industry veterans have also been named to Numera's senior management team. Mark Oswald has been named as Chief Technology Officer and V.P. of Engineering. Numera also named Tony Titus to the position of V.P. Sales, Business Development and Marketing.
