INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (PRWEB) June 21, 2018
1st Care Home Health Services partnered with the innovative telehealth software company, Health Recovery Solutions (HRS), in June 2018. 1st Care Home Health Services has introduced HRS telehealth software to enhance care for patients with congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and severe hypertension.
Patients placed on telehealth are provided with 4G tablets pre-loaded with HRS software. The tablets are paired with Bluetooth biometric devices, which allow patients to take their blood pressure, weight, heart rate, and more. The vital signs are automatically transmitted to the tablet and electronically delivered to the patient’s nurse, allowing clinical staff to quickly address any abnormalities or changes in medical status. The ability to remotely monitor patients allows clinicians to identify patients who are at risk for hospital readmissions or emergency department visits.
The telehealth software facilitates patient participation by providing daily medication reminders and disease specific educational content. Additionally, patients can actively communicate with their clinicians using the tablet’s text, phone call, and video chat features.
1st Care Home Health Services uses the HRS telehealth software to remotely monitor high risk patients and subsequently reduce readmissions, improve patient outcomes, and increase patient satisfaction. Telehealth patients are actively monitored by clinical staff who communicate patient updates to case managers and physicians.
“We decided to work with HRS because we want to ensure we are doing everything we can to reduce hospital readmissions”, says Lisa Mina, Business Development Director at 1st Care Home Health Services. “We continue to hear from our hospitals that telehealth is important for patients with chronic diseases and we value the importance of remote patient monitoring. We are proud to be able to offer our patients this innovative solution.”
Jarrett Bauer, CEO of HRS, adds, “We are excited to begin a partnership with 1st Care Home Health Services and we are honored to have been chosen as their telehealth provider. We are looking forward to working with the clinicians at 1st Care Home Health Services to help them succeed in improving patient outcomes and reducing hospital readmissions.”
