Challenge

With the continued escalation in the prevalence of chronic diseases in the US and around the world, the need is increasing to improve patient outcomes, expand access to care, and reduce the rate of growth in healthcare costs. Advances in sensor technologies, the ubiquitous availability of cellular technology, and falling costs of embedded communication devices are creating new means to improve patient care and quality of life. Using seamless, continuous remote patient health monitoring, healthcare providers, third-party payers, and government agencies are looking to significantly alter how care is provided to patients, while reducing cost of care at the same time.

Solution

ViTel Net's mobile monitoring solution allows clincans to track the health status of patients with chronic conditions or following discharge from acute care episodes. The patient's biometric data and self-entered information is collected and securely sent to the clinician, such that adverse changes can be detected quickly and appropriate action taken to reverse them and prevent any further deterioration. The mobile health monitoring system supports patient health assessment messaging, education and biometric data obtained from commercial standard-based physiological measurement devices. Data is transferred over a secure server using existing mobile telecommunications or Internet infrastructure.

This solution benefits both clinicians and patients. Clinicians can use ViTel Net’s Case Manager web-based solution to monitor incoming patient data, review patient information, evaluate question responses, and receive alerts if patient data is outside the monitoring range. Patients can review their healthcare data as well, enabling them to take a proactive role in managing their health.
