Cellular Gateway offers healthcare providers a cellular Remote Patient Monitoring platform to monitor patient population from home and reducing re-admissions and easing concerns of emergency room utilization. RPM also provide evidence-based medicine and engage patients as telehealth in the CMS rule, is a central element to this end. As written in CMS’ final rule for the Medicare Shared Savings Program, “Accountable Care Organizations must define processes to promote evidence-based medicine and patient engagement, report on quality and cost measures, and coordinate care, such as through the use of telehealth, remote patient monitoring, and other such enabling technologies.” Being able to engage and educate the patient is the only way to change patient behavior and accomplish the goals of healthcare organizations.
However, connecting with patients outside of the office visit, and providing ongoing access and transparency to care and support resources, is challenging, particularly when it requires coordination between patients, physicians, clinical staff, and third-party resources. To meet consumer demands, healthcare providers need new ways to connect with patients and deliver value-added information in a cost effective, easy to access and simple manner – and in a way that maintains consistency and continuity throughout the entire treatment process. Today’s healthcare providers need digital solutions that are specifically custom-tailored for their businesses. The HME platform provides the right digital solutions that are incorporated strategically into a provider’s business, leaving little question that the healthcloud can improve each patient’s overall experience.
