Benefits For Hospitals Through Remote Patient Monitoring
With the rise in remote patient monitoring and reduction of hospital readmissions – the ultimate beneficiaries are patients. They become active participants in their own health and become more engaged in wellness. They learn to take control. The result is better health.
Having a healthier, more involved patient means improved quality care with lower costs – which also benefits hospitals.
Avery Telehealth uses a proprietary care system that helps hospitals operate more efficiently and improve their bottom line. The Readmission Avoidance Program (RAP) takes the hospital discharge orders, executes the instructions and proactively coordinates care with the patient’s primary care provider and other community health providers. Remote patient monitoring takes place through Avery Telehealth’s nursing call center in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The customizable RAP has a proven track record of reducing hospital readmissions. Beginning in 2012, we reduced 30-day readmissions by more than 50 percent each year. RAP focuses on proactive care transition planning, patient-centric post discharge care coordination and remote telehealth monitoring.
“I am thrilled with Avery for our outsourced partner, readmissions have been significantly reduced & patients are extremely satisfied with the program.”

Through a combination of of pre-discharge and post discharge procedures, Avery Telehealth has created a program that will reduce the amount of hospital readmissions – guaranteed.
- Care Transition Planning: We convert discharge orders to care transition plans, medication reconciliation, care coordination, patient education and scheduling PCP follow-up.
- Proactive Patient Centric Care Coordination: This step is crucial because it executes the care transition plan, and ensures physicians are aware of their patients’ health status while providing medical compliance and patient education.
- Remote Telehealth Monitoring: Allows us to track daily health status and vitals with the patient in addition to tracking symptoms and potential side effects to medications.
Remote Patient Monitoring Works
We understand the greatest risk for readmission happens once the patient has left the hospital. The best discharge plans begin to unravel once the patient gets home. Let Avery Telehealth continue the care with our Readmission Avoidance Program (RAP) – a patient monitoring system that guarantees a 30 percent reduction in hospital readmissions.
Avery Telehealth has been helping hospitals across the United States more successfully manage healthcare. In today’s world where hospitals can be penalized for excessive readmissions, it’s a critical topic for immediate consideration.
