Remote Patient Monitoring Technology Connects Patients and Providers, Supports Chronic Disease Management
// By Jane Weber Brubaker //
What happens to patients with chronic diseases between office visits? What if their vital signs need to be checked more often than every few months? As health systems shift to population health management, staying connected with high-risk patients is one way to prevent conditions from escalating.
Many healthcare organizations, health plans and accountable care organizations have turned to Vivify Health, a cloud-based remote care management platform. Vivify Health is a technology-enabled remote monitoring solution that enables providers to proactively manage changes in health status before a patient ends up in the hospital or ER. The company is under contract with 500 healthcare facilities, among them Ascension Health, CHRISTUS Health, UCLA Health, Memorial Hermann, and Intermountain Healthcare.
