AMC Health’s Hospital at Home monitoring support program helps to make hospital-level care at home safer and more effective.
AMC Health’s real-time virtual care management solutions complement the in-home care provided by hospital-at-home clinical staff to help improve quality and safety outcomes. Virtual care management helps to ensure that patients remain safe in between clinical in-person visits by enabling providers to continuously monitor patients and by promoting patient adherence to plans of care.
Our virtual care management solution can help any patient who is a candidate for receiving hospital-level care at home, such as individuals with community-acquired pneumonia, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or urinary tract infection, to name a few.
AMC Health’s Hospital at Home monitoring support program offers the following components:
Biometric monitoring — Patients are supplied with easy-to-use monitoring devices, including weight scales, blood glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, thermometers, and pulse oximeters. Wearables for continuous transmission of heart rate, respiratory rate, glucose monitoring, and temperature will be available by the second half of 2023.
Inhaler tracking — For patients whose pulmonary medication requires tracking, AMC Health supplies inhaler monitors. These devices detect the underuse or overuse of controller and rescue medications.
MyCare Virtual mobile app — AMC Health’s FDA Class II mobile app facilitates secure, anytime chat and televideo between patients and care teams, automated assessments, and educational medical to guide self-care.
Personal Emergency Response Services (PERS) — We have integrated third-party, 24/7 emergency response services, including wearables for automated fall detection.
Supplemental telecare management triage services — We provide 24/7 triage services to provide relief for overstretched acute-care-at-home resources.
Integration with EHR and case management platforms — We ensure that our real-time data collection from the home is seamlessly woven into existing hospital-at-home workflows.
