Boca Raton, FL /PRNewswire/ - MobileHelp® Healthcare, a leader in personal and enterprise healthcare technology solutions including remote patient monitoring (RPM), announced today a new partnership with Casamba, a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) solutions for home health agencies, outpatient therapy and skilled nursing facilities (SNF) contract therapy providers.
Through the new partnership, Casamba will be able to offer home health agency clients an EHR platform that seamlessly supports RPM inside a single clinical interface.
The remote capture of daily physiological data such as blood pressure, weight, pulse oximeter and blood glucose levels will be incorporated into the patient's EHR and allow home health agencies to better manage a patient's health in between visits, even when a nurse is not physically in the patient's home. In addition, the MobileHelp service will provide secure text messaging capabilities, video capabilities, medication reminders, visitor verification, patient engagement and caregiver/clinician portals with business intelligence tools.
A well-known thought leader on PDGM and PDPM, Casamba is adding RPM to their clinical offering in anticipation of the new value-based reimbursement models from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), scheduled to go into effect in late 2019 and early 2020.
"Our partnership with MobileHelp Healthcare is another highly-differentiated way we can support our existing and new clients as they work to improve patient outcomes and reduce readmissions," said Luis Montes, Senior Vice President - Strategic Partnerships for Casamba. "As the changes in reimbursement structure from CMS around remote patient monitoring become more defined, we are excited to help our clients position themselves more competitively in their respective post-acute healthcare environments."
Remote patient monitoring technology from MobileHelp Healthcare will allow Casamba's home health agency clinicians to manage a broader spectrum of patients grouped by health diagnosis in one clinical dashboard, as opposed to working within disparate applications.
"Leveraging our long experience working with older adult patient populations, we were able to create a thoughtfully-designed solution that includes unprecedented engagement potential – such as picture sharing and advanced communication applications – which help alleviate social isolation, while simultaneously amplifying Casamba's value-based care offering with emergency response and fall management programs," said Chris A. Otto, Senior Vice President of MobileHelp Healthcare. "Our goal is seamless integration of our solutions into existing provider workflows. Home health agencies using Casamba's EHR platform will now have the option to remotely monitor patient data between office visits without disrupting existing workflows."
