Infographic: Leveraging Healthcare Technology

August 26th, 2015 by Melanie Matthews

Leveraging Healthcare TechnologyTechnology has the potential to transform the healthcare delivery system by improving communication, streamlining workflows, simplifying information-sharing and allowing patients to engage in their healthcare, according to an infographic by XIFIN.

The infographic looks at how to optimize economics in the healthcare system and the potential impact of this optimization.

Remote Patient Monitoring for Chronic Condition Management: Leveraging Technology in a Value-Based SystemEncouraged by early success in coaching 23 patients to wellness at home via remote monitoring, CHRISTUS Health expanded its remote patient monitoring (RPM) enrollment to 170 high-risk, high-cost patients. At that scaling-up juncture, the challenge for CHRISTUS shifted to balancing its mission of keeping patients healthy and in their homes with maintaining revenue streams sufficient to keep its doors open in a largely fee-for-service environment.

Remote Patient Monitoring for Chronic Condition Management: Leveraging Technology in a Value-Based System chronicles the evolution of the CHRISTUS RPM pilot, which is framed around a Bluetooth®-enabled monitoring kit sent home with patients at hospital discharge.
