“A remote patient monitoring program helps to bridge the gap between the skilled nursing setting and the home, helping our patients to safely transition back home.” said Carol A. Irvine, President and CEO of the Abramson Center for Jewish Life. “Our partnership with Care Innovations opens opportunities for us to differentiate ourselves to both existing and potential patients as well as in the market for our acute care referral sources.” http://hubs.ly/H01dV8j0
"Technology has allowed us to access patients in more remote locations and allowed us to capture data on our patients that can be used to provide for the best health outcomes," - Paul Kusserow, CEO of the home healthcare company Amedisys
