BOCA RATON, FL - (Marketwired - August 18, 2016) - Geared toward healthcare providers and caregivers, MobileHelp® Healthcare, a leader in health management technology, has released a new white paper focused on attaining improved population outcomes through the use of its MobileVitals® solution, which combines both telehealth and personal emergency response systems (PERS).
The whitepaper, titled "The Powerhouse Combination of Telehealth and PERS," was designed to closely examine how the combined effect of two solutions with significant tenure in both the healthcare and consumer spaces can be combined to deliver powerful patient results. The new piece also affords insights into how MobileHelp's own technology growth has extended into the broader industry sectors of healthcare and health IT, with the introduction of its MobileVitals solution.
"As hospitals turn to accountable care organizations (ACOs) or take on at-risk contracts with payors, they increasingly need tools and solutions that improve population outcomes through reduced hospitalizations and readmissions," said Chris A. Otto, SVP of MobileHelp Healthcare. "This white paper outlines how remote patient monitoring and PERS can be combined to deliver these outcomes."
To that end, this white paper addresses how MobileVitals can allow patients to successfully age in place, by addressing two major obstacles to senior health -- the management of chronic illness through use of telehealth and emergency prevention/response through the use of PERS.
"The combination of telehealth and PERS has proven to be a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts," said Mr. Otto. "We look forward to sharing how both providers and their patients can utilize the MobileVitals solution as part of a long-term population health plan to help people age in the spaces of their choosing -- and outside of the healthcare setting."
