Telemonitoring of Heart Failure Patients Reduces Readmissions

from Managed Healthcare Executive

A Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) telemonitoring program significantly reduced hospital readmissions and cost of care for members diagnosed with heart failure, according to a study published in Population Health Management. The telemonitoring program, which incorporated Bluetooth scales with an Interactive Voice Response solution from Advanced Monitored Caregiving, also improved the efficiency of care managers and delivered a 3.3 return on GHP's investment—in other words, for every $1 spent to implement this program, GHP saved about $3.30. more
