We believe that one size
does not fit all.
Every member needs to be engaged and equipped to actively participate in their ongoing plan of care. However, they don’t all need the same tools to accomplish this. We provide members with appropriate tools for managing their risk at home based on their personal risk stratification profile determined by their podiatrist during the Arche CDFE.
Alerts are sent to the OPTYX dashboard if a member has a hot spot that indicates an incipient or actual wound or sore. Your podiatrists can engage in shared decision-making with their patients by following-up when indicated to discuss the need for an appointment. Ongoing adherence is monitored and prompted.
Arche Healthcare’s devices are practical and easy to use, and a daily self-examination takes just 90 seconds.
Arche Healthcare’s InFocus program provides each member with a remote monitoring system delivered directly to their homes. Each kit contains devices that pair with an app called VeriSole® to help podiatrists and members monitor the condition of their feet. Their foot health data is securely transmitted from VeriSole to OPTYX®, a proprietary tablet-based system, that enables streamlined management of the member’s potential for lower extremity complications. The member’s clinical care team is able to monitor foot health data, supporting better decisions that lead to improved outcomes.
DermaStat®, a skin moisture meter for reliable at-a-touch results, is provided to every member. In seconds, DermaStat accurately detects the moisture level of the skin’s surface, which provides an alert to the potential effects of dry skin that may ultimately lead to more complicated dermatological conditions.
TempStat® is an easy to use and visually compelling FDA-approved, at-home temperature monitoring device that uses liquid-crystal technology to produce a thermal image of your member’s feet to allow for quick and easy identification of potential “hot spots” – areas of increased focal temperature indicative of inflammation or infection.
With TempStat, members with diabetes can observe what they often can’t feel and monitor what they can’t see. In addition to the thermographic image, the device’s magnification mirror helps members monitor parts of their feet that may be difficult to see directly. Inflammation is often the invisible precursor sign of infection and pending ulceration. When a member notes a “hot spot” or wound in the VeriSole app, they will be instructed to call their podiatrist’s office. Concurrently, an alert will be sent to their podiatrist through the VeriSole app to OPTYX so that the practice can follow-up with their patient.
InSight® utilizes the same liquid-crystal technology as TempStat and replaces the mirror with a scanning device that captures a high-resolution image of a “hot spot” and literally places it in the member’s hand. The image is also transmitted to the member’s podiatrist for review and development of a plan of care.
