Remote monitoring helps Henry Ford reduce admissions for heart failure (US)

Categories: Latest News.

A remote patient monitoring program has helped cut expected hospital admissions by 36 percent for patients with heart failure at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit…After six months of enrollment in a program that couples patient-centered team care with remote monitoring, admissions fell by more than a third, and the health system realized a 2.3-to-1 return on investment. And, it seems, they were not even using remote monitoring devices, unlike University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust in the UK, which also made a great saving, and put the equipment back on the shelves.
