About Avery Telehealth

Our Mission

No one wants to see patients readmitted to the hospital.

It increases healthcare costs across the board. It’s hard on doctors and nurses who are spread thin. It’s difficult on hospital personnel forced to deal with increasing workload. It’s viewed as wasteful spending by insurance companies and other payers. Most of all, it’s tough on patients who spend more days ill and are separated from doing what they love.

Avery Telehealth is here to change that.

We offer a patient engagement solution that reduces hospital readmissions – guaranteed. Hospital systems see improved patient outcomes, and all parties involved realize lower healthcare costs.

We accomplish this through the advancement of technology. By providing our proprietary Readmission Avoidance Program (RAP) to health systems across the nation, we’re changing the way health plans, hospitals, physician groups, ACO’s and home health agencies care for Americans.

We simplify. We connect. We inspire. We empower. We’re Avery Telehealth.

COMPANY OVERVIEW

Everything we do is about offering the best patient engagement solution.

The Avery Telehealth story began in 2003 when Mark Aspenson founded The Avery Group. As executive director of Visiting Angels in Scottsdale, AZ, and later Minneapolis, Aspenson helped numerous elderly adults age in the comfort of their homes.

As his Visiting Angels locations became leading providers of senior home care, Mark quickly became an expert in the area of readmissions, care transition and telehealth.

Upon founding Avery Telehealth, Mark saw an opportunity to put the reduction of readmission at the core of his business. He recognized that the quality of life of senior clients was disrupted by hospital re-admissions. Families were worried about their loved ones and needed medical support in the home, alongside the non-medical assistance provided by Visiting Angels.

Today, The Avery Group is devoted to healthy, independent living. It boasts an annual growth rate of 20 percent and a workforce of almost 400 employees.

Mark has been published in Health Facilities Management Magazine, the premier publication covering healthcare finance and revenue cycle. He often speaks nationally on these topics. He is also co-founder of the Summit Group for top performers, serves on the Board of Directors for Interior Systems and is an active member of several professional industry associations.

OUR VISION

Imagine taking your car to the auto shop and believing it’s fully repaired. One month later – you’re there again. Later that same year, it’s back in the shop – again.

Frustration aside, you’re spending a lot of time and money on a problem that should have been fixed the first time.

When it comes to cars, only you and the mechanic can solve that recurring problem.

In healthcare, Avery Telehealth is here to help. Reducing hospital readmissions is our objective, and it guides everything we do. We are a patient engagement solution like no other.

Success is mutual when we create long-term relationships with clients, because we view them as partners in collaborating to improve outcomes and lower costs.
