New technologies that makes outpatient treatment safer

Inpatient volumes continue to decline and the experts think this trend will not change.[1]

There are several reasons for this development:

  • Elective admissions, which never recovered after dropping during the Recession;
  • Pressure to reduce readmissions as a result of the Affordable Care Act;
  • Hospitals building clinically integrated networks to emphasize prevention and proactive care;
  • New technologies that makes outpatient treatment safer.

The last two factors can drive down inpatient volumes and therefore decrease total healthcare costs. Vitaphones’ new technologies make outpatient treatment safer: we provide tools to optimize diagnoses and care by using telemonitoring solutions.

    I agree with your comment. Currently I am finishing my PhD thesis about telemonitoring of ventilated patients and quantification of exercise that they can do. I think that the security of exercise prescription without fear of side effects associated to relationship between benefits-costs are the great advantage of use of telemonitoring with equipments that really provide a practical and reliable clinical information.
