Both professional and family caregivers struggle with the daily tasks of providing care to senior citizens. For family caregivers, the barrier comes from a lack of time, resources, and knowledge about when a senior is most at risk or requires a proactive intervention. For health care professionals, the challenge involves delivering high-quality care to the growing senior population while lowering PMPM costs and reducing the number of hospital admissions from the high-risk population.
Traditional analytics have been critical in notifying healthcare professionals when a problem has occurred, and immediate medical attention is needed. However, traditional methods come with a number of drawbacks including compliance issues, reliance on seniors to take a specific action to alert medical professionals, and—most importantly—the fact that by the time the data comes through, it may be too late to effectively intervene.
This webinar will explain how passive remote monitoring technology solves each of the above problems by providing health care professionals with proactive data, allowing them to act before high costs are incurred or hospital admission is necessary, and ensure higher-quality care for their most at-risk population.
