MobileHelp Features Tablet-based Telehealth Solution at NAHC 2017

Offering healthcare providers what the company calls 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 (#218) at the National Association of Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) conference and exposition.

Now available for home health organizations and their patients, the MobileVitals Touch system “blends the safety benefits of a medical alert system with the added benefits of telehealth technology and video conferencing.”

According to details shared with MHW, 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 routinely hear from healthcare providers that after the billable episode has expired, patients become anxious about losing the continuous medical oversight they receive when they are remotely monitored by clinicians,” said Chris A. Otto, SVP of the MobileHelp Healthcare Division. “Our solution provides the same benefits as traditional remote patient monitoring, but with the unique advantage of allowing patients to keep the equipment on a private pay basis, to continue self-monitoring 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.”
