Continuum of Care

Remote Patient Monitoring Solution

Patients with chronic diseases have additional visits to the emergency room, a higher rate of hospitalization, a greater risk of being institutionalized, and are pricier than the average patient (Fazzi Associates, 2008). After being discharged from the hospital to their homes, patients with chronic disease often need a great deal of support including compliance with medications and treatments, improved health behavior coaching, and symptom management. Instead of visiting the patient on a scheduled basis, possibly two or three times a week, tele-health technology allows care providers to observe the patient on a daily basis and make real-time recognitions and interventions in the care of their patients. These early interventions are essential for the improvement of symptom management and reduction in unnecessary health care encounters such as hospitalization or emergency room visits. Remote monitoring can lead to stable symptom management, improved health behaviors, and compliance with medications and treatments. Furthermore, the operational efficiencies shaped by tele-health can have a financial advantage to the care agency.

Remote

A majority of elderly adults are challenged by chronic and acute illnesses and/or injuries. Eight out of ten older patients are living with the health challenges of one or more chronic diseases. Remote patient monitoring (RPM) technologies have been shown to be effective in helping to manage chronic disease, post-acute care, and monitoring the safety of this population. RPM technologies can help patients to slow the progression of chronic disease and ensure continued recovery after being discharged from an acute care setting. RPM technologies also can alert caregivers and prompt intervention when a vulnerable patient is in harm’s way. A number of RPM technology-enabled innovations can improve the health and independence of older adults. The uses of technology enabled innovations are aimed predominantly at improving the health of these patients and promoting home based long-term care. Such technologies are used by patients and caregivers principally to improve self-management of care and enhance communication of patient information to clinic.

There Are Few Areas Of Opportunity For Remote Patient Monitoring:

    • Chronic disease management.
    • Post-acute care management.
    • Elderly care management.
    • Our RPM and telehealth is a web & device-based solution that is split into two parts.

To be used by the clinicians and caregivers.
The web based clinician directed back end management portal provides near real-time remote care plan , pushes of education content, medication compliance and scheduled activites and interactions to the patient tablet.

  • This can be used by the clinicians to create a program and add / modify patients.
  • Review progress and administer remote patients.

Patient Interface – To be used by patients Android tablet platform that provides direct interaction with the clinicians and integrated with the management portal along with below points.

  • Interactions with the Patient and blue-tooth enabled sensors for at home testing / in hospital and near real-time transfer of vital signs readings to the Clinician.
  • Interaction between the Patient and the Clinician via scheduled telehealth sessions launched via the Videoconferencing solution embedded into the tablet application.
  • The Patient is equipped with educational content through a stored and streamed selection of disease management and medication management.
