Readmission rates lowered with HealthCall.In a recent study, HealthCall was used to monitor weight and self-reported signs and symptoms. When weight and/or symptoms are outside of pre-set limits, the heart failure plan is readjusted. 282 patients diagnosed with HF were included in this analysis. 158 (86 male/71 female) were enrolled in the monitoring program, and 124 (71 male/53 female) patients received standard care from their physician. The mean age of both groups was between 74 and 75. Age, baseline ejection fraction, and baseline brain natriuretic peptide were not significantly different (p>0.10). Prescribed beta blocker and diuretic were also similar between the two groups (p>0.05). Patient monitoring resulted in a 72% (56.5% vs. 15.8%) reduction in readmission rates.Readmissions go down with HealthCall.

Another study involved 91 (53 male/38 female) high-risk heart failure patients, with an average age of 75. Readmission rates and length of stay were obtained from hospital records. Comparing the 12 months prior to enrollment in the program, patient monitored demonstrated a 77% reduction in hospital readmissions. Heart-failure-only readmissions were reduced by 72%, length of stay was reduced by 30%, resulting in a 64% reduction in patient days.

HealthCall Care Plans are widely utilized in production for management of hospital-to-home, chronic disease management, wellness and preventative care programs.  Providers across the continuum collaborate using these care plans for effective patient management.
