Quote Attributable To Melanie Matthews, HIN Executive VP And COO:

"According to 2014 market metrics, 54 percent of healthcare organizations monitor patients remotely, with 83 percent focused on individuals with chronic disease. Like CHRISTUS Health, most report significant reductions in hospital stays and ER visits by patients monitored remotely, as well as improved self-management. Our February 24 program will present a remote monitoring boilerplate for organizations wishing to better manage high-risk, high-cost patients as part of a comprehensive chronic care management program."
