Patient Centered mHealth: New Horizons in Diabetes Care in Community Health Centers
This study evaluates the effectiveness of an interactive mobile health information service, Care4Life, in supporting patient self-management of Diabetes by facilitating patient education, behavior change, and improved adherence with standard care practices. It is part of the McKesson Foundation’s Mobilizing for Health initiative to improve the health of underserved populations with chronic diseases through the use of mobile-phone technology.
Remote Patient Monitoring Demonstration Program
This study evaluates two Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) pilot projects in order to demonstrate the potential of RPM to increase the quality and efficiency of chronic disease management and post-acute care of older adults. The initiative also addresses the capacity of RPM to improve health outcomes, including reducing hospital admissions and readmissions.
Return on Investment for Remote Patient Monitoring Model
The Center for Connected Health and the Center for Technology and Aging are partnering to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a return-on-investment-driven approach to promoting the adoption of connected health programs in accountable care organization settings.
Return on Investment of Remote Patient Monitoring Technologies for Older Adults
The Center for Connected Health and CTA are collaborating on advancing the adoption and sustainability of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) technologies through the development, implementation and evaluation of a Return on Investment model for congestive heart failure patients. The ROI tool is an interactive, web-enabled program that assists providers in determining a RPM program’s ROI as well as provides a sensitivity analysis for organizational scenario planning.
