LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - Cytta Corp. (
A major impetus for the new Joint Venture is to highlight CyttaConnect's unique ability to allow all application and portal developers (i.e. MedFlash®) to market their specialized product(s) alongside with Cytta's open source cellular remote monitoring system. The integrated MedFlash/CyttaConnect system will be marketed by MedFlash to physicians wishing to avail themselves of the new CPT codes (and fees) for remote monitoring of chronic conditions and care by providing leading edge treatment to their patients.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in its 2015 Medicare physician fee schedule has included provisions paying for remote chronic care management using the new CPT (current procedural terminology) code of 99490, with a monthly unadjusted non-facility fee of $42.60. In addition, CPT code 99091 allows providers to be reimbursed by Medicare for remote patient monitoring of chronic conditions through a monthly unadjusted non-facility fee of $56.92. The MedFlash/CyttaConnect integrated system will allow physicians to charge for care using the new billing codes while providing access to care services and remote monitoring for their chronic patients.
MedFlash® operates a personal health and wellness portal, which includes telemedicine through its resellers call centers. The MedFlash® PHM provides member benefits including instant access to members' Emergency Medical Profile and Personal Health Record in the event of an accident or a medical emergency. MedFlash also offers lifestyle and wellness features that provide significant health benefits to members and risk mitigation for employers and insurers alike.
The MedFlash® Personal Health Manager (PHM) is an easy-to-use Personal Health and Lifestyle Manager that is accessible using a powerful, secure web portal suite. The MedFlash® PHM provides valuable member benefits including instant access to your Emergency Medical Profile and Personal Health Record in the event of an accident or a medical emergency. MedFlash® will now be available on the CyttaConnect open source smartphone, which transmits data automatically, securely and with complete privacy. MedFlash® and CyttaConnect were developed with the needs of patients, families, doctors and first responders in mind.
MedFlash® is a comprehensive record-keeping portal for all of your personal medical information and, when combined with CyttaConnect, will automatically populate readings taken from Bluetooth wireless medical peripherals. Additionally, the CyttaConnect system will provide the physician with real-time medical peripheral readings from their patients and provides automatic alerts when patient readings are not within the acceptable range. This system is an ideal replacement to unreliable paper records or multiple electronic systems that only hold their proprietary pieces of your medical history.
With the MedFlash®/CyttaConnect, any and all information that is important to you will be kept together in one place and instantly accessible when it's needed most such as: all medical peripheral readings, medications past and present, prescription information, dietary supplements, allergies, immunizations, surgeries & hospitalizations, diagnoses, illnesses, injuries, episodic conditions, lab test results, family medical history, doctor's visits, healthcare providers, insurance providers, emergency contacts, advance directives, and living wills. MedFlash & Cytta Connect create additional assurance that patient care information is accurate, secure and timely.
