Home Healthcare Agencies that provide skilled medical monitoring and services for assisted living at home have historically been users of Telehealth 1.0 systems. These agencies realize the value of remote patient monitoring but have deployed this technology with only a fraction of patients who could actually benefit from these types of solutions – due primarily to cost and complexity for both the equipment and the infrastructure to install and service the systems.
Home Healthcare Agencies face a number of challenges: how to maximize the efficiencies of limited professional resources to care for an expanding patient base, controlling capitated costs, and a changing healthcare landscape that will present many policy changes in the near future – particularly regarding hospital readmission rates.
The MedApps remote patient monitoring platform provides a simple, easy, cost-effective solution versus the hard-wired, proprietary telehealth systems of the past.
By using the MedApps Solution in the patient’s home, the number of home visits could be substantially reduced, while a greater number of patients could be monitored remotely utilizing a central nurse call center. The MedApps Solution allows for a reduction in travel costs and better utilization of resources within a Home Care Agency.
Recently, VRI (Value Relationships, Inc.), one of the largest providers of telemonitoring, medication adherence and medical alert systems in the country, purchased more than 3000 MedApps systems to enhance their in-home monitoring services. With over two decades of experience in health monitoring, and its reputation as an innovator in implementing in-home health services, VRI's choice of deploying MedApps' products at a large scale speaks highly of its confidence in the MedApps System's ability to effectively support its client base.
