Propeller Health accelerates push towards value-based care with new digital health solutions for patients, providers and health systems

Announces integrations with multiple leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, introduces a new solution to enable Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) by healthcare providers, and launches digital platform updates to enable respiratory care at home, in-clinic, and on-the-go.

MIAMI, March 7, 2022 – Propeller Health, a leader in digital health for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), today announced three exciting updates and new solutions to bring its clinically proven, FDA-cleared platform to more patients, providers and health systems.

Integrations expand the reach of Propeller’s digital platform to more health systems

Propeller announced integration with leading EHR systems to expand in-EHR access to its digital platform to more health systems. This includes integration with Cerner Millennium EHR as a validated CODE application and access to Epic EHR through Propeller’s integration engine powered by Redox.

These EHR integrations enable:

  • Streamlined provider workflows with the Propeller clinician portal accessible within the EHR
  • Seamless data transmission so patient data collected by Propeller can be made available in the EHR
  • Integrated experience for physicians and clinical staff to enroll and monitor patients onto the Propeller platform, receive notifications, and adjust treatment decisions as needed. At CommonSpirit’s Dignity Health, Propeller’s EHR integration resulted in a 75-80% reduction in time to enroll a patient – down to just two minutes 
New solution to support health systems on RTM

Propeller announced a new solution for respiratory care for independent clinics, physician groups and health systems to provide remote monitoring for eligible Medicare patients that may be reimbursable under the new RTM codes added to the 2022 Physician Fee Schedule in January 2022 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).1

The solution, which may be provided under an RTM arrangement or as a chronic care offering sponsored by a clinic or health system, offers physicians and clinical staff:

  • Web-based Propeller clinician portal to enroll patients with chronic respiratory conditions who could benefit from remote monitoring
  • Templates for patient education materials and platform education through Propeller’s self-study training library
  • Insights for ongoing patient monitoring, including data and messaging on medication use and adherence

The solution was designed especially for older individuals with chronic respiratory conditions such as COPD, with plans to expand to the asthma population. 

Enrolled patients benefit from:

  • Propeller sensors that attach to their maintenance and rescue inhalers and cellular hub that automatically collects and transmits medication use data to their provider
  • Patient and caregiver access to actionable insights through Propeller’s web portal or smartphone app
  • Propeller’s guided onboarding and support for clinicians and to engage and motivate patients
Digital platform updates expand accessibility to more patients to improve health equity

Propeller also announced significant updates to its digital platform that improve health equity by making it accessible to more patients, particularly vulnerable populations and older adults. These include:

  • Expanded availability of Propeller sensor for AstraZeneca’s SymbicortⓇ, a leading solution in today’s market for inhaled prescriptions for COPD and asthma in the U.S.
  • Improved medication management in the smartphone app including tracking for generics and expanded prescription refill options in Propeller’s My Pharmacy tool
  • Propeller’s Virtual Care Team, adding high-touch support and coaching shown to promote improved outcomes such as reduced rescue inhaler use and better retention2

Now, the Propeller solution can be ordered and managed through the EHR like any other medication or treatment. Enrollment is streamlined for providers and staff as they don’t have to leave their clinical workflow: it now takes two minutes to enroll a patient, which is a 75-80% reduction in time.
