Chronic disease management tools can improve the transition from hospital to home, enhance patient experience, and help coordinate patient-centered care.
GrandCare’s simple touchscreen appliance arms a discharged patient with diagnosis information, instructions, medication management, remote caregiving coordination and one-touch video chat with health providers. Wireless telehealth devices enable remote monitoring of patient vitals, preventing avoidable hospital readmissions. Activity sensors alert remote caregivers to unexpected lifestyle changes.
2013 study using GrandCare technology:
- 36% improvement in HbA1c blood sugar
- 37% improvement in triglycerides
- 29% reduction in inpatient hospital admissions
- 36% reduction in A&E visits
Encourage family participation. Empower the patient. Promote adherence to instructions and medication protocols. Recognize and respond quickly to key changes in behaviors and vitals. Mitigate hospitalisations. Manage risk. And reach cost-saving goals.
GrandCare is perfect for high risk patients who are being discharged from my emergency room. The system sends out alerts on medication non-compliance and red flags, such as an excessive weight gain, which gives me more meaningful patient data and can reduce unnecessary readmissions. This all leads towards better outcomes turning into revenue streams for the healthcare providers.Erick A. Eiting, MD
