Thursday news roundup: dimming SPACs, hospital-at-home pilots in DFW, Connected Health debuts bespoke home care services configurator in NIR

The prognosis for SPACs? Like Lucas electrics, dim. Too many went public on last year’s overdose of moonbeams and celery stalks at midnight, to this year’s plummeting share prices and red ink. Not only are SPACs now targets of Federal, including SEC, scrutiny, but they have Elizabeth Warren, the Senatorial Scourge of Finance, after them promising legislation with even tighter regulations than the SEC. But let’s face it, most SPAC’d companies have yet to stumble their way into profitability. From financing Hero to Zero in two years. This short article in PrivCo’s Daily Stack will confirm all of this.  

Hospital-at-home pilots in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area. Biofourmis is piloting an initiative with Wise Health System for its Hospital@Home end-to-end solution that combines artificial intelligence (AI)-based remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology and clinical support services. This is to qualify for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Acute Hospital Care at Home program. Select patients can choose to be admitted to home versus the hospital, then monitored by the Biofourmis Virtual Bed Kit based on a wearable biosensor feeding into a digital tablet pre-loaded with the patient-facing Biovitals Hospital@Home app. Wise’s staff will visit the patient at least twice daily to conduct in-person examinations, assessments, and additional testing as needed. Wise Health is a four-hospital, integrated care network. Biofourmis release

What you pick is what you get. Domiciliary care provider Connected Health is debuting Connected Health 2.0, a ‘home care configurator’ which will enable clients and families to build a package of services for home care. Launched during Carer’s Week in Northern Ireland, it custom-packages physical care, wearables, medication devices and virtual care services. Once the client or family member configures the care package, Connected Health calls them to review suitability then follows up with an on-site risk assessment in the home before service begins. The Irish News article is light on details like when it begins in Northern Ireland, but Connected Health’s timetable is to roll it out in the UK and Ireland over the next two years.
