AUSTIN, Texas – Capitol Home Health has partnered with telehealth technology company Health Recovery Solutions to deliver enhanced remote care to Medicare patients with congestive heart failure. Capitol Home Health selected HRS’s technology because of its ease of use for patients, caregivers and clinicians, said Cathy Bowen, administrator for Capitol Home Health’s San Antonio branch, in a statement. “Telehealth is a tool to increase a patient’s confidence in their ability to effectively and independently manage chronic symptoms,” Bowen said. “The ease with which patients will be able to monitor and manage the telehealth equipment will result in better compliance.” Patients placed on Capitol Home Health’s telehealth program are provided with 4G tablets pre-loaded with the HRS software. The tablets pair with disease-specific Bluetooth biometric devices that allow patients to take their blood pressure, weight, heart rate and more. The physiological data automatically transmits to the tablet and is electronically delivered to the patient’s nurse, allowing clinicians to address any medical abnormalities in a timely manner. The HRS telehealth software also provides patients with daily medication reminders and disease specific educational content, as well as the ability to communicate with their clinicians in real time using the tablet’s text, phone call, and video chat features.
