VNA Health Group invests in remote patient monitoring and skin health programs with Medline
An industry report estimates up to $250 billion of U.S. healthcare spend could potentially be shifted to virtual care. As COVID-19 encouraged care providers to make remote care more readily available to patients, insurance providers are now increasing reimbursement for remote patient monitoring. On average, CMS approved reimbursements of $120 per patient per month. With more than 12,000 home health patients seen on any given day, Medline is working with VNA Health Group's 30-plus offices to implement remote patient monitoring through VitalTech to help reduce readmissions, and enhance outcomes through virtual care. VitalTech's VitalCare platform will help automate the collection of key patient vitals, nutritional data, medication compliance information and changes to activities of daily living through Bluetooth-connected devices. Through the VitalCare Family App, family members will also be able to access a patient's health data and real-time alerts will be pushed to them if a patient's health metric is outside a certain range. "Healthcare is a partnership and providing compassionate, coordinated care requires collaboration from our vendors like Medline," said Andrew Wheeler, director of Therapy Specialty Services for VNA Health Group. "The pandemic has taught us a lot about our relationship with caregivers and working with Medline has allowed us to leverage their clinical expertise to evolve our approach and help clinicians perform at their best."
