The COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing it brought is changing the way the doctors at Excellence Medical Center interact with their Cape Coral, Florida, patients. Christine Mackie, MD, and other healthcare professionals at the medical center were well-positioned to for the impact with their continued use of telemedicine through Anelto Remote Care instead of face-to-face visits for routine care of their elder patients.

Virtual care through telemedicine, like that provided by Anelto, is quickly becoming an essential weapon against the spread of the pandemic. Telemedicine keeps patients and staff in close communication but at a safe distance. Physicians can monitor patients and track vital signs while the patient remains safely at home. The technology is particularly useful for older patients who need more healthcare but who are at a higher risk of developing complications associated with coronavirus disease.

“The ability to interact with patients and monitor their vital signs remotely helps us continue managing their existing health problems, such as heart disease and COPD, but also monitor them for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. This brings peace of mind to our older patients who might otherwise put themselves and their families in danger by making a trip to the emergency department or crowded doctor’s office. Anelto helps us monitor our patients remotely, reassure them, and keep them safe at home.”

CEO of Anelto, Mark Denissen, says, “I believe we can make a difference in keeping patients safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. To reduce the infection rate through social distancing, healthcare professionals must work together using the latest tools and technologies available to bring medical care to patients in their own homes. Here at Anelto, we have created an innovative solution that transforms patient engagement. Remote Patient Monitoring is a key part of that solution.”

While several new players are appearing on the telemedicine field, Anelto is an established company with a solution different from the competition in that it focuses on ease of use and access for seniors. Anelto can help medical institutions like Excellence Medical Center improve financial stability during a tumultuous time, as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to expand CMS reimbursement options for remote patient monitoring.

“Anelto Remote Care allowed us to deliver higher quality care to more patients. Our patients find it easy to set up and use; this ease of use gives patients confidence in the system, which increases their willingness to take their vital signs and engage with their healthcare provider. Anelto is also helping us grow our practice at a time when social distancing is shrinking other practices.”
