Frequently Asked Questions
What patients are eligible?
Patients will be evaluated for eligibility based on their condition, risk factors for readmission and willingness to use technology. Conditions that are often appropriate for remote monitoring include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), pneumonia and comprehensive care for joint replacement.
What is the first step for patients after enrollment?
Patients are contacted by nurse coordinators to confirm eligibility, willingness to participate, and to schedule delivery for kits. Upon delivery, equipment is set up, tested and patients are connected to their first virtual visit with their nurse coordinator. Patients will have weekly video check-ins scheduled, and daily monitoring with interventions as required. Comprehensive care for joint replacement patients will only be using an app version (no devices).
