ROCHESTER, N.H. – Cornerstone VNA of Rochester used telemonitoring software from Health Recovery Solutions to achieve a readmission rate of 3.4% over 146 of their high-risk, poly-chronic patients over a six-month period, a number which surpasses both the New Hampshire state readmission rate benchmark of 18.2% and the national benchmark of 16.7%. “We have been using the HRS telemonitoring solution to help manage our chronic disease patients,” said Jennifer Gullison, clinical director of Cornerstone VNA, in a statement. “The videos, custom education and daily reminders have been extremely beneficial in allowing us to provide quality care.” Cornerstone VNA incorporated HRS’s telemonitoring software into its leading care management programs in 2016 to support their heart failure patients. In the program, patients are provided with 4G Samsung tablets and FDA-approved Bluetooth devices for vital biometric monitoring. Patients take and track their vitals daily, while clinicians monitor them through the online portal and mobile apps. The HRS software gives clinicians the ability to monitor patients who are at high-risk for hospital readmissions and it allows seamless communication between patients and clinicians through text, phone, and video calling.
