Motiva, Philips’ TV-based platform for remote patient management is available in the U.S. market.
Patients can eye their vital sign anytime. Motiva engages them with personalized interactive content, helping care managers reach more patients, influence long-term behavior and lower healthcare costs.
“Motiva gives patients a friendly and familiar way to connect everyday with their healthcare organizations – the home television,” said Jay Mazelsky, vice president and general manager of Philips Medical Systems. “Nearly everyone has a TV and Motiva transforms this common household device into a whole new way for nurses to educate, motivate and communicate with their patients. Equally important, Motiva lets clinicians continuously track each patient’s level of knowledge, motivation and confidence to achieve specific health goals related to his or her chronic condition. It’s a powerful combination designed to help organizations address both quality of life and cost of quality care.”
With a simplified user interface, patients only need to operate a few buttons on a Motiva remote control, while the secure broadband connection and set-top box installed at enrollment make the connection work.
Motiva supports daily vital signs monitoring for high-acuity patients using wireless devices installed in the home. The current product includes Bluetooth-enabled weight measurement, while future Motiva releases are expected to incorporate blood pressure and glucose measurement. For every patient, it monitors ongoing health status, usage patterns and regularly queries patients about changes in their knowledge, motivation and confidence levels. In this way, nurses can adapt care plans and gauge impact on long-term behavior.
To help patients achieve their health goals, healthcare organizations use Motiva to deliver care plans directly to patients at home. Each care plan includes personalized messages, reminders, health tips, health status surveys and feedback, as well as video clips designed to educate the patient and quizzes to test comprehension. With Motiva, patients interact with their healthcare provider daily as they progress through the care plan content. Care plans, which integrate an organization’s clinical guidelines and evidence-based protocols, are available for a wide spectrum of chronic diseases, condition and acuity levels – from at-risk to chronic – including congestive heart failure, diabetes, asthma, depression, as well as lifestyle factors such as obesity and smoking.
