1: Easy Access to Real-time Patient Data
Our remote monitoring program can save thousands of dollars per patient by relaying current ventilator information about the patient. The monitors can measure pulse, oxygen saturation, and other vital signs as needed for your patient.As a case manager, you can rest easy knowing that we can remotely identify and correct changes or problems, contact the patient’s doctor or send an RT to the patient’s home to further evaluate and correct problems. The daily data also provides reassurance and encouragement to patients for the various efforts they are making to improve their health.
2: Transparency in Sharing Patient Information
One common drawback of telephonic case management is that you are limited to information from doctor’s visits and the most recent symptoms that your patient reports. Unfortunately, patients might gloss over some symptoms or be reluctant to report them. With our remote monitoring devices, you can receive objective data, giving a true story of the patient’s health changes.
3: Save Costs
According to a recent study, remote monitoring with home respiratory equipment and other critical ancillaries saves each patient up to $8,375 in costs over a one-year period. The study highlighted numerous case studies, including a 75-year-old man who was diagnosed with hypertension, heart failure, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
4: Prevention of Secondary Infections
Patients with conditions such as COPD or Respiratory Failure often experience lung function deterioration, making them unable or unwilling to leave home. If they do, environmental factors such as pollution or pollen can make it harder for them to breathe. Some ailing seniors also struggle to get around on their own, and excessive walking can result in severely labored breathing.
By utilizing our home respiratory equipment, patients can have adequate rest and lower their risk of contracting various secondary infections that could reverse the gains made in their treatment plan.
