MobileHelp Features Tablet-based Telehealth Solution at FLAACOs 2017

Offering healthcare providers a more comprehensive solution, MobileHelp Healthcare — an industry leader in mobile medical alert and health management technology — is featuring its newest remote patient monitoring (RPM) solution in its booth (#215) at the Florida Association of Accountable Care Organizations annual conference (FLAACOs).

According to a provided statement, the new MobileVitals Touch system blends the safety benefits of a medical alert system with the added benefits of telehealth technology and video conferencing.

The new system also provides features and benefits that create unique ways for providers to engage with their patients, and for patients to engage more fully in their own health and well-being.

The MobileVitals Touch system gives healthcare providers the capability to provide patients with the benefits of traditional RPM for their entire episode of care. Following that time period, patients have the opportunity to keep the telehealth equipment and shift to monitoring their own vital signs — allowing healthcare providers to essentially step out of the clinical care process — while giving patients the tools they need to engage more fully in their own care.

“We know better management of patients with chronic conditions reduces readmissions for ACOs and results in better outcomes for patients. MobileVitals Touch takes that to the next level by combining RPM and personal emergency response (PERS) services in a single platform,” said Chris A. Otto, SVP of the MobileHelp Healthcare Division. “Providing these benefits beyond the clinical oversight care period allows patients to self-monitor their own health, with access to emergency help if needed. It is the value-added benefit of the medical alert system that makes it practical and economical to ‘step down’ to the private pay option.”
