Passive Monitoring Data: Quantifying and Accelerating Proactive Health Care

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.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to reduce avoidable admissions by identifying gaps in care for seniors
  • How passive remote monitoring technology works in a senior’s home to predict potential health problems before they happen
  • How the industry has evolved from reactive remote monitoring to proactive passive remote monitoring
  • How passive remote monitoring technology can help reduce PMPM costs by up to 16% and reduce costs associated with emergency room visits by 39%
  • How Medicaid and Medicare teams can capitalize on real-time analytics provided by passive remote monitoring devices to provide quality care to their most at-risk demographic
