Remote monitoring, data security, drug pricing intelligence and pediatric aftercare guidance are among recent initiatives from health information technology vendors:

* Health insurer Humana has launched a year-long pilot program to monitor the activities of daily living in senior citizen homes outfitted with remote monitoring software from Healthsense. Humana’s chronic care management division enrolled 100 Medicare Advantage members in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky and West Virginia in the pilot, with Healthsense’s eNeighbor remote monitoring system installed in their homes.

Individuals also can wear an emergency call pendant.
