BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., June 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ExpressMD™ Solutions, a provider of remote patient monitoring systems and services for patients with chronic illnesses, today announced that Health Resource Solutions (HRS), a leading high-tech home health and rehabilitation care company in Chicago, IL selected Electronic House Call™ (EHC) as their next-generation remote patient monitoring platform.
"Telehealth has always been a part of the HRS patient care strategy because it increases patient care, while decreasing rehospitalizations. Electronic House Call is an up-to-date, flexible telehealth solution that allows us to manage many different disease care protocols in patients' homes with the single EHC device. Telemonitoring is a win-win situation for patients, payers, hospitals and home health agencies by reducing the overall costs of rehospitalizations and providing a monitored in-home support system for recuperative care," commented Glenn Steigbigel, Administrator at Health Resource Solutions.
The Electronic House Call remote patient monitoring solution enables homecare companies to monitor patients remotely, saving costs and keeping patients healthy. Many homecare companies use telehealth to manage patients with chronic diseases such as CHF, COPD, Diabetes, Hypertension and Sleep Apnea. The EHC system improves chronic illness care and reduces costs by delivering results to healthcare providers securely on the web without in-person or emergency room visits. The easy-to-use in-home EHC touch screen unit delivers better continuity of care to specific patient segments such as the elderly, special needs or pediatric patients with chronic illnesses who require monitoring of medical conditions. Automated reminders increase patients' compliance with care plans, diets, medication schedules and follow-up physician visits effortlessly. And, while improving medical condition monitoring, EHC also provides patients with online disease management education. Care providers can view patient's vital statistics and make adjustments to care plans online.
"Our mission is to provide the best solutions that enable the homecare industry to coordinate care for patients by simplifying both administrative and clinical processes. Electronic House Call allows HRS to deliver on their commitment to referring hospitals, doctors, patients and caregivers by delivering the highest quality of care to their patients," concluded Gavin Stewart, Senior Director of Business Development at Authentidate and ExpressMD Solutions. "Additionally, these monitors are being used on a specific group of pediatric patients that opens up a whole new market for our company."
