Tactio Adds TERRAILLON WebCoach Form Scale to Its Connected Health Lineup, Opening Up Remote Obesity Management Programs in France via Its Strategic Partnership With DOCAPOST
Press Release - BOSTON - Connected Health Conference, October 27, 2017
Tactio Health Group deepens its integration of Terraillon scales with the WebCoach Form to enable remote obesity management programs in France. The wide retail availability of the WebCoach Form and its affordable price makes it an ideal fit for several key, BYOD obesity remote management programs. The joint solution adds the scale to a growing list of Bluetooth-enabled devices that seamlessly integrate with TactioRPM patient apps, enabling data collection without mandating third-party accounts.
According to the OECD, obesity rates in France are among the lowest but have been increasing steadily. About 1 in 10 people are obese in France and almost 40 percent are overweight. OECD projections indicate that overweight rates will increase by a further 10 percent within ten years.
Terraillon’s WebCoach Form (CSB60308BK) BTLE scale retails around €50 and is widely available throughout France retail channels for patients. Volume discount is also available for corporate as well as clinical buyers who want to incorporate the scale into their wellness or patient programs.
“The availability and reliability of BTLE scales has improved over time so we are now able to develop use cases for a wider range of patients including seniors with obesity related health issues. Terraillon brings 100-plus years of experience manufacturing body scales into this model that we are integrating right into the DOCAPOST platform in order to link the obese patients needing help with the clinical care teams that can now track and coach them remotely,” said Michel Nadeau, P.Eng., CEO of Tactio Health Group.
TactioRPM is an app-enabled platform that combines mobile apps, hundreds of connected health integrations (incl. Apple, A&D, Fitbit, Garmin, Google, MIR, Nonin, Omron, Roche, Terraillon & Welch Allyn), patient questionnaires, digital coaching programs and HIPAA-compliant messaging. Powering telehealth initiatives from payers, providers and pharma, its wide range of clinical applications includes chronic disease monitoring, population health screening, clinical research and post-acute care. TactioRPM is registered as a Class 1 with the FDA, CE and ANVISA.
Didier Bollé, CEO Director of Terraillon stated, “Working with Tactio and DOCAPOST is a great opportunity for Terraillon. The uniqueness of the TactioRPM app empowered patient monitoring is a natural fit for Terraillon. With its strategic partnership with DOCAPOST, the combined solution will reach lots of obese patients in France, all in need of digital, mobile and connected care solutions that they can use in the comfort of their home such as the WebCoach Form.”
