Through the use of the mobile application, HeartHealth, healthcare providers were, and still are able to remotely monitor their patients’ blood pressure and weight in the 30 day high risk period post-discharge.
These measurements are taken to:
- Ensure the patient’s health is controlled by leveraging data from connected devices and Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs)
- Provide insight into big data via new risk stratification
- Reduce unnecessary costs due to readmission penalties by increasing quality of patient care through remote monitoring by population health coordinator
This shift towards value based care is driving the need for physicians and care providers to be suitably equipped to deliver better and more accurate treatment to their patients. The goal being to drive improved outcomes and lower readmissions.
