Created in collaboration with national homecare agencies, case studies offer road map for successful telehealth program implementation
AUSTIN, Texas — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) HomMed, a global leader in telehealth and remote patient care, recently released a series of three new case studies to highlight effective strategies for successfully implementing telehealth programs , featuring insights from across the care continuum.
Created in conjunction with home healthcare agencies from Maine to North Dakota, Honeywell HomMed designed the case studies to highlight myriad issues in the healthcare industry, from the successful use of wireless telehealth devices to using telehealth solutions to achieve enhanced communication across the care continuum.
“As the healthcare industry looks for ways to reduce costs while increasing the quality of care, professionals , the successful examples highlighted in these telehealth case studies will allow others to successfully and confidently implement their own solutions,” said John Bojanowski, president, Honeywell HomMed. “We are thrilled to communicate these best practices and program successes from our customers in the home healthcare industry.”
Each case study examines the challenges home healthcare agencies faced and how Honeywell telehealth solutions – from patient monitoring devices to software – worked to address them and improve outcomes.
For example, when home care providers at VNA Home Health Hospice (VNA) in Maine looked to improve their telehealth program, they realized that they could expand patient care by giving their physicians the ability to monitor patients’ health status using the VNA’s existing telehealth system. The result was a wider “circle of care” around patients, with improved care coordination – everyone from clinicians to physicians involved in the patient’s care plan could track and monitor the patient’s daily vital signs at any time.
Available for download from the company’s web site, or in the company’s booth (#1042) or hospitality suite (#468) during the 2013 American Telemedicine Association (ATA) show, the new Honeywell case studies are titled:
VNA Home Health Hospice utilizes Honeywell’s LifeStream™ View to streamline patient care between physicians and home healthcare agency;
