Moorestown, NJ, August 3, 2021 – CareVention HealthCare, a division of Tabula Rasa HealthCare (TRHC), today announced the launch of its Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) service. Using biosensors and artificial intelligence (AI), CareVention RPM provides continuous tracking of a patient’s vital signs and symptoms and alerts the patient’s healthcare provider to changes that warrant attention. CareVention HealthCare provides comprehensive services and solutions to value-based healthcare organizations, including Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).
“Remote monitoring enables a provider to intervene quickly when necessary and focus resources on the patients who need care the most,” said Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD, Chairman and CEO of TRHC. “This can improve patient health and safety and decrease unnecessary, costly utilization, such as ER visits and hospital admissions.”
CareVention HealthCare is partnering with Thaïs, a healthcare technology company, to use its remote monitoring platform and devices. Upon enrollment in CareVention RPM, an individual receives a kit, including a monitoring device and biosensors, such as thermometer, oximeter, and blood pressure machine. The biosensors send readings to the monitoring device, which transmits the data to a Thaïs monitoring center, staffed by trained clinicians. The patient’s provider is notified immediately if data indicate medical intervention is needed, as determined in advance by the provider for the individual patient.
“We have seen great results with CareVention Healthcare’s Remote Patient Monitoring,” said Ivan Merkelj, MD, medical director at Palm Beach PACE in Florida. “Our participants are monitored for multiple diseases, including hypertension, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), diabetes, and congestive heart failure. The alerts and algorithm are geared towards PACE participants, so our providers get filtered data that allow them to make actionable clinical decisions. The providers like the biweekly reports, and our participants are more engaged in managing their conditions.”
In addition to performing real-time risk stratification based on vital signs and symptoms, CareVention HealthCare’s RPM filters data to reduce alert fatigue among providers. Alert fatigue can occur in healthcare environments when clinicians become desensitized to system messages and alarms that may indicate problems with patients.
“RPM is useful for continuous observation of patients with COVID-19 or flu, or patients with symptoms of COVID or flu who need to quarantine, have been discharged from the hospital or emergency room, or have been seen by their provider for these symptoms,” said Ankur Patel, MD, MBA, Chief Medical Director of TRHC, who oversees the RPM service. “RPM is also an important tool in caring for patients with chronic conditions, such as COPD, diabetes, hypertension and congestive heart failure.”
