CINCINNATI – CHI Health at Home will use technology from HomeCare Vitals to provide advanced remote care management of patients with congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes.
“What we hope to demonstrate very quickly is that our technology is not only the most patient-affordable solution on the market today, but that it will also allow CHI Health at Home to achieve unprecedented clinical outcomes for its vast network of chronic care patients, which is in keeping with CHI’s commitment to patient-centered, affordable care,” said Dr. Suresh Nayak, co-founder of HomeCare Vitals, in a statement.
HomeCareVitals technology is flexible, scalable and capable of remotely monitoring any patient population, Nayak said. It can also be tailored to meet individual patient needs at all levels of technology expertise and comfort.
In pilot testing, the technology was shown to reduce readmissions by as much as 65% and patient compliance and satisfaction rates reached 95%.
“As we deliver care under an increasingly risk-based reimbursement model, we are excited to become a development partner in HomeCareVital’s scalable population health management technology,” said Rodney Plunkett, vice president of population health management at CHI Health at Home, in a statement. “Supporting trialed innovative technologies that solve critical health care problems is at the heart of our mission at CHI Health at Home.”
CHI Health at Home provides home care and supplemental staffing, hospice, home respiratory care, home infusion therapy and medical transportation in more than 50 locations across eight states.
