Our Pursuit: Advancing Care Delivery

Doing More With Less While Improving Outcomes

Approximately 240 million 9-1-1 calls are made in the United States every year. There are an estimated 130 million hospital emergency room visits every year, with 12.4% resulting in admission. Too often, people rely on the hospital emergency room for preventive care. Twenty years ago, HealthCall questioned whether using automated prompts, assessments, remote monitoring, and reporting could foster more proactive care to help healthcare providers keep patients with chronic conditions — the ones often dialing 9-1-1 — out of the hospital. Twenty years later, we find ourselves continuously building on this success and our patented technologies into areas that go well beyond chronic care management. We were shaping the dynamics of the virtual care delivery model, but that’s only the beginning.

Along the way, as we worked with healthcare providers on the ground and responded to what could help them more effectively and efficiently do their jobs, we began to see how major challenges facing the US healthcare system were driving the convergence of care back into the home as the primary site.  We also saw how this approach led to patients doing better in their homes and avoiding expensive hospital visits. Our unique health care delivery model now housed longitudinal predictive metrics on patients’ well-being as well as big data captures on population health that hadn’t been within such easy reach before. We empowered extended care teams with a plethora of collaboration tools to help remove silos between traditional medicine and community agencies while keeping patients at the center of it all.

We are operationalizing highly scalable personalized care models with fewer barriers to help significantly larger populations in which multidisciplinary care teams are virtually connected and able to leverage sustainable resources in entirely different ways.

2006

Impact of a Heart Failure Disease Management Program on Hospitalization Presented at Heart Failure Society of America meeting, Seattle, WA, 2006.

Conclusion: Patients monitored with HealthCall were 4 Times more likely to avoid hospitalizations (95% confidence interval: 2.4-6.7, p<0.001)

2006

Relationship between Brain Natriuretic Peptide and Heart Failure Symptoms Presented at American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, 2006.

Conclusion: Demonstrated link between worsening HF symptoms and elevated BNP levels.

2006

Change in Brain Natriuretic Peptide Predicts Risk for Hospitalization in Patients with Heart Failure Presented at Heart Failure Society of America Meeting, Seattle, WA, 2006.

Conclusion: Patients with a change in BNP ≥ 34.5 pg/ml were 3.3 times more likely to be hospitalized within 30 days compared to those subjects with a change in BNP <34.5 pg/ml (p=0.002)

2007

USPTO Patent issued on the HealthCall system and method

2007

Reduction of Brain Natriuretic Peptide Following a Disease Management Program in Patients with Heart Failure Presented at Heart Failure Society of America, Washington, DC, 2007

Conclusion: HealthCall monitoring program significantly lowers BNP. Importantly, the Cardiologist concluded the lower BNP was not a result of highly proactive care; rather, the patient’s health improved by reducing the load on their heart.

2007

Impact of the Implementation of Telemanagement on a Disease Management Program in an Elderly Heart Failure Cohort Published in the Progress in Cardiovascular Nursing journal, www.lejacq.com

Key finding: Along with reaffirming the benefits of disease management, this is one of the first to demonstrate that self-directed Telemanagement [HealthCall] is of higher value in terms of better outcomes, ease of implementation, and increased cost-effectiveness.

2008

An Evidence-Based Approach to Improve the Care of Patients with Heart Failure: The Use of Individualized Education and Tele-monitoring to Decrease Acute Hospital Days Presented at the American Association of Heart Failure Nurses meeting, 2008

Conclusion: Patients monitored with HealthCall experienced a 43.7% reduction in acute hospitalization days

2009

Relationships between co-morbidities, reimbursement, and cost in the treatment of heart failure Presented at Heart Failure Society of America Meeting, Seattle, WA, 2009.

Conclusion: By reducing the number of readmissions, the number of un-reimbursed will decrease, and average reimbursement will increase.

2009

The Game of Health, An innovative lifestyle change program implemented in a family practice Published in the Journal of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners

Conclusion: The Game of Health was well received by patients and was effective in modifying behaviors to achieve a healthier lifestyle and improve body composition.

Key findings: Monitoring with HealthCall is superior to device-based telehealth in its ability proactive alert on non-measurable symptoms, enable management by exception to monitor of more patients, and greater cost-effectiveness while ensuring better patient outcomes.

2016

Dynamic Results in Reducing Readmissions in Patients with COPD: A National Analysis White Paper, Kenneth London, MBA 2016

Key findings: 30-day COPD readmission rates among [populations monitored with HealthCall] is 65% less than the “Top 15 Health Systems” and 67% less than the national average.

2017

Achieving the Triple Aim in Post-Discharge Care Case Study: Catholic Health Initiatives, 2017

Key findings: Monitoring with HealthCall reduced readmission rates (57% within 30 days), shorten length of stay (reduction of 4.9 LOS days on average per patient!), patient testimonies and survey revealed consistent patient satisfaction (10 out of 10), improved patient compliance to treatment plans (60% adherence) — they achieved the triple aim: improved health outcomes, better care experiences for patients, and reduced cost of care.
