In recent years, a transformative shift in healthcare dynamics has emerged, challenging the traditional notion of long-term or post-acute health treatment. The spotlight is now on home care through remote monitoring, a paradigm that not only proves to be economically advantageous but also addresses critical issues like staff shortages, efficient allocation of healthcare resources, and, most importantly, enhances the overall well-being of patients during the critical phases of recovery or chronical diseases monitoring.
Cost and Operational Effectiveness in Post-Acute Healthcare Delivery Through Remote Patient Monitoring
Long-term or post-acute health treatment often incurs substantial costs for both healthcare providers and patients. The overhead costs of maintaining specialized facilities, coupled with the expenses related to constant staffing and resource allocation, contribute significantly to the healthcare providers’ financial burden. Essence SmartCare’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) emerges as an effective alternative.
Efficient resource allocation is a perennial challenge for post-acute healthcare facilities, often resulting in escalated costs. Essence’s RPM system, VitalOn, serves as a strategic solution, channeling resources towards patients who can achieve effective recovery within the comfort of their homes. This ensures that vital hospital facilities are prioritized for those who genuinely require intensive care.
The global healthcare industry grapples with a shortage of skilled medical professionals. Remote health and wellness monitoring by Essence SmartCare alleviates this issue by optimizing the utilization of available staff during the critical recovery phases or chronic diseases treatment. This not only addresses staff shortages but also ensures that each healthcare professional’s expertise is deployed where and when it is most needed.
Essence SmartCare solutions go beyond smart resource allocation; its cloud connectivity seamlessly integrates patients’ vital information with Electronic Health Records (EHR). This integration enables a real-time coherent view of the patient’s condition, allowing for streamlined and effective care. The platform’s intelligent distribution of information ensures that only relevant caregivers are alerted in case of emergencies, facilitating prompt and targeted interventions.
Remote patient monitoring can be quite challenging due to patients’ non-compliance. Essence SmartCare’s VitalOn platform transforms vital measurements into an effortless process with groundbreaking app-free voice-activated technology that not only fosters better adherence and compliance for patients but also simplifies tasks for medical teams, contributing to more effective treatments. For the medical team, this means a notable decrease in readmissions and ER visits, ensuring the focus remains where it matters — on the patient’s recovery journey.
Post-acute care facilities bear extensive operational costs, ranging from utilities to the maintenance of specialized equipment. Essence SmartCare’s home-based monitoring acts as a cost-effective alternative, eliminating many of these expenses. The result is a healthcare model that is not only more streamlined but also significantly reduces the financial burden on post-acute care facilities, allowing them to allocate resources more efficiently.
Enhancing Patient Comfort and Independence During Recovery or Chronic Conditions Monitoring
The advantages of Essence SmartCare’s home-based monitoring extend far beyond cost savings, directly impacting the comfort and quality of life for patients during long-term or post-acute health treatment.
