Cipher Skin announces it has launched a pilot program with Parker Health to make Cipher Skin Biosleeve technology available to clinics that use Parker Suite Health Management System. Select orthopedic clinics in Austin, Kansas City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco will deploy Cipher Skin Biosleeve devices for Medicare and Medicaid patients as part of the program. 

“We are excited to work with Parker Health to make physical rehabilitation more accessible and engaging, particularly for Medicare and Medicaid patients who do not have the luxury of extending their recovery time,” said Phillip Bogdanovich, CEO at Cipher Skin. “Cipher Skin’s Biosleeve technology enables patients to be actively involved in their recovery, motivating them to complete their rehabilitation program. Together, Cipher Skin and Parker Health will make actionable data about patient progress available to providers so they can help improve care, enable faster recovery and demonstrate positive health outcomes.”

The pilot program will focus on preoperative and postoperative orthopedic patients who will use Cipher Skin’s Biosleeve as part of their recovery. The Biosleeve’s patented sensor technology captures motion and biometric data in real time and translates it into 3D visualizations with actionable data. The Biosleeve can track patients’ range of motion and monitor how they improve over time through physical therapy exercises. This data will be available in Parker Health’s platform to enable flexible, hybrid recovery for musculoskeletal patients both in the clinic and at home.

Furthermore, this month Parker Health launched Parker Now the Nation’s first on-demand health management platform. Parker Now is a cloud-based subscription with real-time access to an EHR, RPM, and much more.

“The addition of Cipher Skin to the Parker Health system will help simplify the complexities of physical rehabilitation,” said Vince Lopez, CEO at Parker Health. “By working together we can provide real-time recovery and biometric data to providers who can use that information to help optimize care plans, reduce unnecessary surgeries and hospitalizations, and improve health outcomes for patients with musculoskeletal issues.”

The pilot program will initially launch in Texas, California, and Kansas with plans for future expansion into additional states after this initial pilot.
