features and benefits
Boost outcomes and reduce readmissions
Remote monitoring is associated with lower mortality rates and shorter hospital stays for intensive care patients. A study found hospital mortality rates dropped from 13.6 percent to 11.8 percent and length of hospital stay dropped from 13.3 days to 9.8 days.1
Save on health care costs
Members using remote monitoring save $566 compared to a control group not using remote monitoring over the same time period.2
Support at any stage of the health care cycle
Telehealth supports inpatient and outpatient care, referrals, consultations, post-discharge services and in-home monitoring, to improve adherence and wellness. For 96 percent of remote monitoring users, it helped create a better, more positive health care experience.3
Remote monitor users: 100% would use it again, 96% felt more confident using it, and 85% percent felt it helped them manage their condition.– Optum Voice of Integrated Consumer Experience, 2015
