Automated Security Alert is doing amazing things with technology. The Pittsburgh-based company is combing devices such as medical alarms, monitored medication dispensers, and Telehealth services to help patients with congestive heart failure and the results are astounding. During a study using the Center for Healthcare Strategies, Inc ROI investment calculator one health plan alone can save up to $632,458,419.00 over a period of three years by providing the medical technology to 48,000 patients with congestive heart failure(i) (this figure is the savings after the costs of the systems were deducted). Besides the financial benefits to the health plan, the patients got an even better benefit: they live longer and have less hospital visits.(ii)
