Healthcare providers wanted additional touchpoints to proactively monitor patients with heart disease and chronic conditions.
Dr. Ronald Levine and his team at Levine Heart & Wellness wanted to get ahead of negative health outcomes and get enhanced and consistent data on their patients, such as blood pressure and weight metrics. Patients, in turn, needed to be more adherent to their health program and empowered to take ownership of their health between clinic visits. The practice sought a preventative care solution to monitor and provide high-touch care to patients with chronic conditions.
The practice increased touchpoints and implemented a proactive care model using Accuhealth’s turnkey Remote Patient Monitoring solution.
Within 48 hours, Accuhealth’s remote patient monitoring (RPM) solution seamlessly integrated with Levine Heart & Wellness’ existing processes and procedures, placing patient readings directly in the existing athenahealth EHR software. With Accuhealth’s 24/7 /365 clinical monitoring team in place and daily patient biometric data at their fingertips, Levine Heart & Wellness delivers world-class preventative care, keeping patients more engaged and getting ahead of negative health outcomes.
Levine Heart & Wellness utilizes Accuhealth RPM to gain valuable biometric touchpoints to deliver world-class preventative care.
Successful onboarding of 512 patients had a profound effect on their practice. In 2022, patients averaged a -29 mmHg reduction in systolic blood pressure and a -22 mmHg reduction in diastolic blood pressure, with an estimated $1.68 million in cost savings to the Medicare system in avoidable hospital visits from patients using Accuhealth RPM*. Patient adherence and satisfaction increase significantly as patients become empowered to make healthier lifestyle choices. Billing was seamless, with auto-generated claims in athenahealth generating additional monthly recurring revenue for the practice.
