Our Pursuit: Advancing Care Delivery
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.
