Remote monitoring of some Aetna Medicare members with CHF combined with enhanced case management has meant more timely attention to health alerts, resolution of medication errors and increased engagement of the member, physician and nurse case manager, according to early results of a study featured in this week’s issue of Healthcare Business Weekly Update.

We’ve already seen how the application of telemononitoring or case management alone can impact this population, so we imagine the combined intervention is hard to beat. According to a HIN benchmark study on the use of telehealth, more than half of survey respondents are using remote monitoring, with more than four-fifths focusing this effort on patients with CHF. In a 2010 study of healthcare case management trends, more than 80 percent of respondents employ case managers, of which more than half are primarily focused on CHF patients.
