SARASOTA —Alive Sciences has rolled out the Florence Rothman Patient Monitoring Index to several non-acute health care providers. The Sarasota-based firm has a development partner contract with a local hospice and a contract with Sunnyside Village in Sarasota among others, according to Darlene Arbeit, the firm's chief operating officer.
As the Business Observer reported in April, the startup, led by Steven Rothman, is working to license the Rothman Index software to non-acute health care providers, such as retirement centers, skilled nursing homes and home health care agencies.
The Rothman index takes 50 patient health indicators, including vital signs, from current health records to create a composite number so health care providers can quickly judge a patient's condition.
Following its work with Sunnyside Village, Arbeit says the firm is working creating an interface that can be used with the Optimus EMR, an electronic medical and health record system used by Sunnyside Village and many other post-acute health case companies.
