Your health is a big deal and WebCareHealth recognizes it. The time you spend with your doctor can be augmented by remote monitoring services. With digital health resources are at patients’ fingertips, it’s easier than ever for health providers to administer personalized care quickly and conveniently.
WebCareHealth is a healthcare technology company that provides remote monitoring opportunities for chronically-ill patients to interact with their providers from their home. With a focus on conditions such as heart failure, atrial fibrillation, chronic pain, diabetes, hypertension, and anticoagulants, WebCareHealth’s platform provides a safe option for at-risk patients to collect and provide valuable data for their provider without frequent visits or exposure to a doctor’s office.
Dr. Teresa Sieck, President and CEO of WebCareHealth, provided insight into what she feels should signal an alarm. Nearly half, 122 million, of all adults have some type of cardiovascular disease. Additionally, 6 million patients are experiencing atrial fibrillation, 158 million patients with diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes and pre-diabetes and over 100 million patients are suffering from chronic pain showing a clear picture for all of us. New innovative solutions that better manage the escalating numbers of health issues are unavoidable. Emergency rooms are inundated with visits associated with chronic diseases causing potential disruption in care plans. Furthermore, office visits intermittently do not offer enough information to determine the best care plan for every patient.
Dr. Sieck states,“Our focus is to help patients stay connected to their primary provider so that care can be streamlined and optimized”. Through remote monitoring, the patient stays tethered to their primary provider and has improved access to care. By submitting patient generated data about their condition on a daily basis, patients can rest assured that their provider or the clinical team are reviewing the information and will respond with new recommendations if they are warranted.
During this pandemic the protection of patients, healthcare workers and supplies is vital. By offering remote monitoring, our communities are gaining protection and are playing their part to prevent the spread. “Many parts of our healthcare system today are not sustainable. The challenges we face today that bring about change will shape how we continue to manage healthcare in the future,” Dr. Sieck emphasized. “Utilizing a platform like WebCareHealth allows a medical professional to help dozens of patients in a short amount of time, prevents unnecessary emergency room visits and hospitalizations and ultimately allows providers to tend to the sickest patients with acute problems more effectively.” With all of the information delivered to the provider through technology, directly reported from each patient, providers and their teams are able to do their job efficiently.
Through empowering patients to track and submit their own data, providers are able to administer real time feedback and recommendations. From patients needing to monitor their symptoms to high-risk patients who benefit from avoiding uncertain hospital environments, these regular, real-time updates from patients give healthcare providers more insight. Providers are able to see “daily diaries” of their patients and make decisions that improve care and prevent adverse events. With very close monitoring offered by WebCareHealth’s platforms, patients have had significant reductions in adverse events such as stroke, major bleeds, death and hospitalizations. Along with closing a gap between patients and healthcare workers, this data is beneficial on a larger scale, providing insight into how healthcare professionals can provide better care to a multitude of patients.
By providing patients with the freedom to track their own symptoms, condition, and progress, WebCareHealth is strengthening the bonds between healthcare workers and patients, lifting a burden on the healthcare system, and providing valuable insight into the future of medical preparedness and management.
