REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING
CLINICAL BENEFITS OF REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING
The Serinus Health Advantage
- Monitoring the evolution of health conditions like Hypertension, CHF, COPD, CAD, Diabetes, while the patient is at home, enables the early detection of health risk changes. Prompt notification of these risks changes allows for timely care provision which prevents worsening conditions and likely ER/Hospitalizations. Furthermore, knowing health conditions evolution allows for prompt medication adjustments or necessary changes without the need of a clinic visit. More importantly, the whole monitoring routine reinforces medication compliance with the consequent benefits to overall patients’ health.

WHAT IS REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING?
Remote Patient Monitoring, RPM, is focused on following a person’s health conditions evolution during the normal life continuum at the person’s home or habitat. Some of the common conditions which usually evolve into hospitalization crisis, unless timely care is provided, are Hypertension, CHF, COPD, Diabetes, CAD and other Heart Diseases. RPM determines the changes in health care risks resulting from the evolution of a person conditions while at home.
The evolution of these conditions can be observed by determining the change in patient’s vitals trends, for example, systolic trending higher; oxygen saturation trending low; sudden large changes in weight; etc. In addition to these quantitative physiological parameters, there is also the need to monitor conditions associated symptoms like shortness of breath, dizziness, etc. It is the complete set of parameters and symptoms evolution that informs on the persons health conditions and respective risks.
RPM also includes the collection and transmission of the parameters being monitored and the generation of Alerts in case of condition changes outside the threshold limits.
DAILY AND EFFORTLESS:
COMPREHENSIVE COVID19 MONITORING AND EARLY SYMPTOMS DETECTION
Serinus has a comprehensive scope for early detection of COVID19 symptoms that likely indicate a virus infection. Since persons might have different “normal” temperatures, Serinus monitors a person’s temperature evolution to determine a growing trend or a likely fever (ex. 2 or 3 degrees higher), even before the temperature value reaches a given fixed value (ex. 100.4). More importantly, the likely fever is detected while the person is still at home.
Furthermore, other (non-fever) COVID19 symptoms might be observable before any fever is declared, thus Serinus performs COVID19 specific Health Assessment Screenings while the patients are at home to detect any abnormal symptom Alert. These Health Assessment Screenings can be performed with any frequency necessary, for example daily before a person goes to the workplace, or with any other periodicity.
It is known that certain per-existing conditions significantly increase risks. Therefore, monitoring the evolution of health conditions like Hypertension, CHF, COPD, CAD, Diabetes, is a critical component of any COVID19 risk management program. The early detection of any abnormality of these conditions for prompt corrective care significantly reduces any likely complications resulting from COVID19 symptoms or virus infections.
Any COVID19 Health Assessment Screening Alert provides the evidence necessary for effective Telehealth consult and smart testing program.
INCREASED PRACTICE REVENUE
RPM implementation phases include:
PATIENT SET-UP: 1. Determination of the vitals to monitor depending on each patient’s conditions; 2. Determination of the devices which the patients will use to take their vitals; 3. Provision of the devices to the patients, together with the necessary education;
VITALS COLLECTION AND TRANSMISSION: 4. patient takes its vital readings on a (close to) daily routine while at home; 5. patient have access to methods or solutions to collect and transmit the vitals readings; 6. vitals are transmitted and accessible to health care providers;
VITALS ALERTS GENERATION AND NOTIFICATION: 7. the transmitted vital values are analyzed to determine values outside per-defined threshold limits; 8. any abnormal values trigger Alerts to be promptly notified to the patient’s care team. Serinus has a real time Vitals Dashboard where the care team can see any patient’s vitals evolution at any time.
SERINUS HEALTH RPM DIFFERENCEEFFECTIVENESS AND UNIQUE PATIENT ENGAGEMENT AND COMPLIANCE
Care When and Where is Needed
Patient engagement and compliance are essential for RPM success. Serinus Health engages patient’s collaboration from the very start: Serinus offers patients total flexibility and choice regarding which devices to use and what collection methods for vitals transmission: from a simple Land Line to a sophisticated smart phone; with or without WIFI availability; devices with/without blue tooth communications; or a vitals data concentrator with cellular transmission for minimum patient intervention.
Patient compliance is secured by active patient interaction program including texting, email, Virtual Assistant and/or actual human calls to remind patients of importance to take vital readings to provide ongoing education and coaching as necessary to secure patient compliance. Serinus continuing interaction with patients serve as an important reminder to patients to take their medications with significant improvement of health outcomes.
Serinus Health RPM goes beyond the RPM regulated scope. Serinus RPM Plus performs a complete action plan to actually achieve effectiveness in ER/Hospitalization reductions, health outcomes improvements and additional practice revenue.
Serinus RPM Plus (optional) Action Plan includes: 1. comprehensive condition dependent real time Patient Health Assessment Surveys, HAS; 2. Interventions Of Care Coordination, upon any vital or HAS Alerts to ensure patients truly receive timely care; 3. On-demand professional health care to promptly address any patient Alert, by means of 24×7 Access to Telehealth.
Early detection of health risk changes that trigger actual timely professional Care When and Where is Needed is essential to achieve RPM effectiveness.
Why Serinus Health?
Serinus Health, a leader in remote health monitoring, has the solution to help employers (businesses) minimize COVID-19 ongoing risks in the workplace from employees returning (daily) to work. Serinus enables early detection of any individual emergent health risk and/or illness through timely symptoms screening & vitals monitoring. Early detection of possible risks will trigger prompt and relevant health professional consultation to make an informed decision and/or to confirm certain actions (virus testing) have been taken, before returning to the workplace. Serinus services and related workflow are flexible and can be adapted to each particular workplace or company requirements to minimize any impact on workplace productivity.
Serinus Health provides employers and businesses with the necessary information and decision criteria to perform the critical task of maintaining workplace safety on a daily basis. This in turn empowers employees to be participants of their own safety in the workplace, increasing morale and sense of well-being.
In a time where social distancing begins to relax and stay-at-home orders are being lifted, it is critical to ensure exposure to possible health risks is kept to a minimum for businesses’ employees and to ensure business continuity.
Serinus Health is a leader in Remote Patient Monitoring at home for early detection of health risk changes. Risk changes trigger automated alerts to our care team. Upon receiving a health alert, Serinus conducts a real-time patient health assessment tailored to the patient’s condition for prompt and precise Interventions of Care Coordination. Furthermore, Serinus’ platform enables physicians to provide “Care When and Where is Needed’ using evidence-based Tele-Medicine to patients at home.
Serinus has the most flexible array of health monitoring tools for total patient flexibility, including automated apps; smart Artificial Intelligence Virtual Assistants via Voice or Texting; and data concentrators requiring no patient intervention for vital automatic transmissions via cell networks. Serinus smart cloud applications detect and send automated Alerts upon detection of vital abnormalities, while physicians and care teams have access to real-time patient vitals dashboards.
