Sheridan, WY, January 02, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- The study comparing hospital care at home versus hospital admission for patients aged 65 years or older with community-acquired pneumonia, chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or cellulitis, found that home hospital care met quality standards and resulted in shorter stays (3.2 vs. 4.9 days) and lower mean costs ($5081 vs. $7480). A systematic review and meta-analysis of 10 randomized controlled studies found similar outcomes - and notably a survival advantage at 6 months - with hospital care at home.
Building on this information a recently completed a trial of the CENSON® Care Remote Patient Monitoring platform was undertaken by a national Home Health Care agency, which allowed them to receive patient vitals and other relevant data 24 hours a day.
Remote Patient Monitoring is clinically useful information to help physicians and other care providers make more accurate treatment and management decisions for people suspected of having High Blood pressures based on routine office BP measurements.
The Home Health Care agency trial confirmed previous trial results with patients cared for utilizing Hospital at Home spent significantly less of their care time sedentary (12% vs. 23%) or lying down (32% vs. 66%), used significantly fewer healthcare resources (e.g., lab orders, radiologic studies, specialty consultations); and were significantly less likely to require readmissions within 30 days (7% vs. 23%).
Home health care is a beneficial choice, a safe and affordable solution that supports the family, while allowing your loved ones to stay in the comfort of their own home and communities while maintaining their desired quality of life.
CENSON® Care CEO Simon Censon noted, "Hospital at Home requires substantial agency planning, including home monitoring systems and support technology, staffing, ancillary services, and point-of-care testing for the patients homes. Nevertheless, agencies might benefit from systematically integrating a Hospital at Home model to lower hospital re-admissions and costs."
"We are excited to offer this program to all medical groups, Home Health Care, Senior Care, and assisted living facilities commencing early 2020," stated Mr Censon.
CENSON Care provides full time quality control services to ensure that their clients will receive high quality product and make medical care easier.
CENSON® Care is a developer and provider of HIPAA compliant turn-key remote patient monitoring, telehealth, and telemedicine solutions, including Hospital at Home.
