In Hand Health received a patent for the AlignFlow software solution’s remote patient monitoring features.

In Hand Health’s AlignFlow software solution that enables remote treatment for orthodontists and general practitioners is now patent protected.

AlignFlow is a HIPAA-compliant, secure multi-messaging teledentistry and remote monitoring tool that is used in the teledentistry space for aligners, braces, sleep apnea, TMJ, and other treatments, as well as marketing and lead generation for doctors and their practices.

Core components that were recently patented include composite scoring for patients and their treatments, support for both actively monitored and passively confirmed resources and content, and patient surveys and feedback. The dashboard and treatment MPH facilitate rapid review and assessment of where patients are in their treatment process.

AlignFlow’s recently patented core components work to increase its effectiveness in creating more positive impacts to doctor workflows to make them more efficient and impact their bottom lines.

Brought to market during the pandemic, taking feedback from doctors, practices, and strategic partners allowed AlignFlow to continue to enhance its platform, especially its compliance MPH score and dashboard of core components.

“As the case is with any software and technology patent, it is a long road. We’ve been working on the development of the platform since 2014 and continue to build on that,” said Michael Gassman, chief executive officer, In Hand Health. “With the feedback of orthodontists and GPs, we’ve been able to create more features and functions, and expect to have another series of patent approvals in the near future, directly related to that feedback.”
