CDC estimates that over 868,000 Americans die of heart disease or stroke every year. Over 34.2 million Americans have diabetes and another 88 million adults are pre-diabetic. The economic toll of these chronic conditions cost our healthcare system over $541 Billion. Chronic patient management has deeper challenges. The National Health Council estimates that over 30 Million patients have 5 or more chronic conditions and left unmanaged creates poor outcomes increasing the cost burden for both patients and the healthcare system.
Chronic patient health outcomes depend on a variety of factors- how they manage themselves, lifestyle choices that they make, compliance to medications, care plan, diet and activity. As the healthcare system moves from volume to value-based care they need:
Telemedicine or Telehealth is a very broad term and folds all technologies or processes that enable a patient to be treated virtually. Telehealth is commonly identified to interactive Video consults for managing patients. Examples of telehealth includes health education services, remote monitoring of vital signs, ECG or blood pressure and remote doctor-patient consultations (telemedicine). Telehealth technology enables the remote diagnoses and evaluation of patients in addition to the ability to remote detection of fluctuations in the medical condition of the patient at home so that the medications or the specific therapy can be altered accordingly. It also allows for e-prescribe medications and remotely prescribed treatments.
Remote Patient Monitoring – or RPM – enables more effective chronic patient management as care teams are now armed with more context about a remote patient’s disease condition- context largely provided by receiving and analyzing a remote patients physiological data regularly in real time, outside of clinical settings. Care teams are empowered with patient condition, receive alerts from vitals, non-compliance to medications or care plans and engage with patients proactively rather than episodically to improve outcomes.
Patients send their physiological data using monitoring devices to an RPM platform.
IntelliH is a SaaS based platform with a focus on managing CHF, diabetic and post-operative patients. It provides a risk stratified dashboard for care coordinators on PC, MAC as well as Android tablets. The patient App on iOS and Android devices, as well as an autonomous robot- TEMI from ConnectedLiving, wirelessly collects physiological data and sends that to IntelliH for analysis.
The IntelliH platform tracks care plan compliance, analyzes received vitals and generates alerts that are customized to individual patient. It prepares a comprehensive disease specific reports for doctors across any longitudinal period for data driven decision support.
The IntelliH solution enables immersive collaboration with patients, care givers and care teams through rich multi-party telehealth videos as well as secure texts.
IntelliH integrates to a wide variety of EMR systems such as:
IntelliH uses a wide variety of monitoring devices from iHealth such as:
IntelliH will soon ingest EKG data from ambulatory EKG monitoring devices.
IntelliH is the most comprehensive platform for Care Coordination and management of chronic and post-operative patients in any setting.
Physician that prescribe Remote Patient Monitoring for their patients can now be reimbursed by CMS for:
Remote patient monitoring with immersive telehealth enables providers in value-based reimbursement models to better manage their chronic patients suffering from co-morbid conditions such as CHF, Diabetes or post-operative as well as seasonal flu conditions such as COVID.
RPM provides a much-needed context with the longitudinal clinical and behavioral patient data to proactively engage with patients and ensure compliance to care plans.
IntelliH’s alert system enables patients to be stratified by risk and allows care teams to reach out proactively to patients that need immediate attention.
Rich telehealth video transforms the patient experience as they avoid an unnecessary travel and wait.
