Paramus, NJ (PRWEB) May 22, 2017
Valley Home Care, part of Valley Health System in New Jersey, has been a pioneer in telemedicine since 2005. In 2016, they turned to local Hoboken company, Health Recovery Solutions (HRS), to offer high-risk patients a new level of patient care and to upgrade its telehealth program.
HRS who will be celebrating 5 years as a company next month, has transformed the telehealth industry by creating software that addresses the primary drivers of hospital readmissions and ER visits, including medication noncompliance, low health literacy, and lack of communication with clinicians and caregivers.
HRS’ software allows clinicians to monitor a range of patient biometric values—including blood pressure, weight, and oxygen level—and responses to daily symptom questions specific to their disease condition. It also allows nurses to use video chatting and wound imaging so that they can monitor patients closely. All data captured through the devices automatically and securely transmit back to Valley’s clinical team within seconds so that clinicians can follow up with their patients and intervene when necessary.
With extensive experience in telehealth, certified heart failure RN and Telemanagement Clinical Coordinator, Elaine Davis, explains why Valley chose to partner with HRS: “What’s new to us is the convenience of the Bluetooth wireless system and the easy access to HRS Support, helping the patients and nurses work through any technical issues. They are very responsive, which is tremendously helpful in our daily work, making it more functional and supportive for everyone.”
Laura Martyn, Clinical Manager for Specialty Team adds, “The platform is easy to install, easy to learn, and much simpler for the patient than other platforms we’ve had experience with.” With the platform’s ease of use, the Valley Home Care team plans to continually seek new ways to provide exceptional care for their patients, including leveraging video visits, medication management, and interactive education through the HRS platform.
Rohan Udeshi, COO of HRS states, “Valley Home Care’s excellence in telehealth operations is a natural fit with our patient engagement platform, and we look forward to a strong continued partnership as we pave the way for new innovations in telehealth.”
