NEW YORK and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Upper East Side Cardiology ("UESC") has announced today that they have launched a new remote patient monitoring program with Claris Healthcare's Claris Continuum technology to provide its patients with the best possible care and treatment at home.
Like many physician practices, UESC is challenged to provide in-person care during the current pandemic. Many patients face serious health consequences when they are unable to see their physicians face-to-face. This is especially true for higher risk cardiac patients with chronic conditions like congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hypertension and other common cardiac related conditions. The all-in-one Claris Continuum Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) system enables UESC to expand their best practices for cardiac care into the home to not only monitor their patients, but more importantly to respond proactively when their patients are trending in the wrong direction. UESC uses Claris Continuum to monitor vitals, communicate with patients, and provide ongoing education and treatment all from the comfort and safety of the patient's home. In addition, Claris sets itself apart in the market with unique features that help older patients remain socially engaged and connected with family caregivers.
Dr. Satjit Bhusri, UESC Founder and renowned healthcare innovator, said, "Our mission is to provide our patients with the highest quality care and leverage innovative technologies to improve outcomes and grow our best practices. RPM is a natural fit for UESC's goal to expand our services into our patients' homes. Claris Continuum has allowed us to quickly and easily deploy the state-of-the-art vital signs monitors to our patients so our physicians get the right information at the right time." Dr. Bhusri continued, "We recognized that deploying remote patient monitoring is one of the biggest decisions we have made since the early days of EMR adoption. Given my experience with similar health technology, we took our time to research the market carefully before we selected Claris Continuum. Our staff felt that the system provided the most intuitive solution for both our patients and staff."
Geof Auchinleck, CEO of Claris Healthcare said, "Since 2013, we understood the potential to monitor seniors at home to provide safety and independence. With new CMS reimbursement coupled with the COVID pandemic, health professionals have begun to incorporate RPM as a key component to their standard of care." He continued, "UESC represents the future in how physicians will manage and treat cardiac disease to improve patient outcomes, optimize staff resources, and lower the overall cost of care."
The Claris platform is specifically designed for older patients (65+). The Claris Continuum systems provides varying deployment options depending on patient condition and care plan. Utilizing the latest in Bluetooth and cellular technologies, Claris offers tablet-based Bluetooth connected sensors or direct cellular connected sensors. Patients, clinicians, and family members all have the option of staying connected via mobile apps, creating an unprecedented patient-centered care model – without any need for on-site installation, configuration, or training. Claris Healthcare developed its software solution, Claris Continuum, to address several challenges for chronic care management for seniors at home. Given the company's unique history in providing remote care solutions for senior social and family engagement through its Claris Companion tablet, Claris combines features like email, video calling, photo albums, games, websites, and many other social options making the overall system uniquely beneficial to help solve the serious problem seniors face today with social isolation.
