Connected care at-home technologies empower behavior change and informed decision-making in healthcare. They enhance patient engagement, leading to personalized care and better health outcomes. These technologies optimize resource utilization, streamline care delivery, and reduce hospital stays and readmissions, resulting in significant returns on investment for healthcare organizations.

Dr. Zsolt Kulcsar, system medical director at Lee Health/Virtual Health, specializes in virtual care and at-home technologies. At the HIMSS24 Global Conference & Exhibition, he will discuss "Digital Care at Home That Improves Clinical and Patient Outcomes." The session will focus on how technology enhances clinical workflows and patient experiences, particularly in remote patient monitoring (RPM). RPM has evolved significantly, aided by advances in technology and payment modalities. RPM kits now capture various physiological data and facilitate instant patient feedback and communication with healthcare teams.

Lee Health's collaboration with Health Recovery Solutions, a leading RPM vendor, exemplifies the successful application of RPM technology. Their program, Remote Patient Management, features a structured clinical team, including registered nurses and advanced providers, overseen by a physician/medical director. This advanced team structure has led to improved patient outcomes, including a 50% reduction in 30-day readmission rates. Lee Health's adherence rate to daily vitals reached 80%, surpassing industry averages due to user-friendly technology and tight clinical protocols.

The session will highlight the importance of team structure in RPM programs to enhance patient experience and outcomes. Lee Health's model serves as a valuable example for organizations embarking on RPM initiatives. Their success underscores the potential of RPM to transform care delivery and improve patient outcomes.
