5-Star home care provider partners with the fastest growing remote monitoring company and is providing telehealth in North Carolina.
Well Care Home Health, a North Carolina based home health agency, and Health Recovery Solutions (HRS), a software company started at Johns Hopkins University, began this week providing an innovative telehealth remote monitoring program to Well Care’s patients across 43 counties in North Carolina.
Well Care Home Health will use HRS’s new Clinician Connect and Caregiver Connect mobile apps, which allow nurses in the field as well as the patient’s family caregivers to receive high- risk alerts from tablets that monitor and engage patients. Both the nurses and family members will be able to conduct video calls, phone calls, or text messages directly to the patient’s tablet.
“Well Care Home Health is excited to collaborate with HRS to provide a technology platform to better manage chronic diseases such as heart failure through education and patient engagement,” reports Wanda Coley, COO of Well Care. “Having access to real time data will allow our specialized nurses to proactively provide care interventions using best practice protocols to avoid hospitalizations and improve quality.”
HRS’s disease-specific software engages patients with educational videos, teach-back quizzes, care plans and surveys, and allows for video conferencing with nurses and family members. Customizable software is loaded on tablets to provide telehealth monitoring while integrating with wireless Bluetooth devices.
Jarrett Bauer, CEO of Health Recovery Solutions says, “We always love partnering with such highly rated agencies like Well Care because they will utilize all of the innovative options we offer for patient engagement. We are honored they picked us and are so excited to begin our partnership.”
Well Care Home Health is rated 5 stars in patient outcomes by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, accredited by the Joint Commission and received the honor of HomeCare Elite in 2015. Well Care currently serves 43 counties in NC from the coast to the western part of the state.
