WORCESTER, Mass. – Fallon Health will partner with Healthsense to provide passive, remote monitoring for members of its NaviCare program. The health insurance and care provider decided to expand the monitoring based on a recent 12-month study that found using Healthsense’s remote monitoring services in connection with its model of care for seniors reduced total medical expense by $687 per member per month. Healthsense uses wireless sensors in the home to monitor everyday living activities and gathers the information to establish individual patterns. The proprietary technology evaluates the data and updates users with timely information so caregivers can act proactively when they spot the early onset of a health event. NaviCare is a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan and a Senior Care Options program for adults age 65 and older. “The early results are encouraging and we believe remote monitoring is a new and promising tool we can use to meet our clinical objective to keep our frail dual-eligible members safer and in the community for as long as possible,” said Dr. Thomas Ebert, Fallon Health’s chief medical officer, in a statement.
