NEW YORK, NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 09, 2016
June 9, 2016 — AMC Health, a leading provider of virtual care solutions, announced today that it has launched a multifaceted remote chronic care program with one of the nation’s largest independent regional health plans in the Midwest. This multi-year program is designed to monitor and treat the payor’s Medicare populations with heart failure, pulmonary disease (COPD), and diabetes in their own homes to promote patient engagement, improve patient outcomes, and prevent costly acute episodes. This is AMC Health’s third launch this year with a major payor organization, further solidifying its leadership position within in the virtual care market.
AMC Health’s virtual care solutions will enable members to easily report daily biometric measurements, such as weight, blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels, and inhaled medication use using Bluetooth-enabled devices in the comfort of patients’ homes, helping them adhere to their care treatment plans. Patient data is transmitted seamlessly to a secure cloud-based clinical platform (CareConsole®). CareConsole® provides the latest in high-resolution virtual care on mobile smartphone and tablet technology, expanding patient and care team interactions beyond hospital, clinic, outpatient and home settings. Symptom and behavioral information is also collected to provide a more complete view of patient status. CareConsole® utilizes a sophisticated analytics engine to alert the care team to patients’ emerging health issues or concerning trends so the care team can prioritize outreach to the right patients, before small clinical issues became serious problems.
AMC Health’s team of experienced RNs (registered nurses) will monitor and provide support to patients with an alert status, as an extension of the health plan’s care management teams. Nurses have access to real-time data, enabling them to focus on the specific needs of each patient: an opportunity for a teachable moment (diet, compliance, etc.); resource support (transportation, home health); or help with an in-person appointment with their PCP or specialist when necessary. During patient interactions, AMC Health will also focus on specific gaps in care to support the health plan’s commitment to clinical quality and STAR ratings.
“This year alone, we have launched multi-year agreements with three major payors. We are proud to have been selected by this leading regional health plan after their extensive evaluation of the market,” said Nesim Bildirici, Founder and CEO of AMC Health. “As their partner, we are committed to helping their members be healthier by leveraging technology in the home and establishing telehealth as a standard care. We bring together clinical, technology and analytics expertise, gained over millions of patient days, along with proven outcomes to ensure that our solutions are optimized to provide the right intervention at the right time.”
AMC Health has provided its real-time virtual care solutions to leading healthcare organizations since its founding in 2002. AMC Health has consistently partnered with organizations to assist with the identification of patients with the highest risks, likelihood of hospitalizations, and utilization of services. AMC Health has demonstrated, in peer-reviewed clinical studies that its remote patient monitoring and engagement solutions have reduced hospital readmissions for patients with heart failure and reduced their cost of care. AMC Health solutions have also helped patients with diabetes significantly reduce their HbA1c levels and patients with hypertension substantially reduce and control their blood pressure. These results have been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Journal of Managed Care Medicine, Medical Care and Population Health Management.
