Case Study: Reducing Cardiology Readmissions & Increasing Patient Engagement with RPM

Writing a prescription for a patient using remote patient monitoring

A top US-based hospital specializing in Cardiology, primary care, and urgent care monitors and manages conditions like hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, etc.

They treat patients with in-depth heart conditions who live in rural areas and cannot visit hospitals often for advanced treatments. 

With the impact of COVID-19 and the aftereffects, they desperately needed a solution to decrease readmissions and increase easy access to advanced care for those patients in rural areas.

CapMinds’ RPM Technology was compatible with them and offered a variety of customized features that could take the hospital to expand grabbing potential opportunities. Once the RPM was implemented, it went through astonishing improvements in its communications and operations.

Business Challenges

  • High readmission rates: The cardiology hospital had a high rate of readmissions for heart failure patients, which led to increased costs and reduced patient outcomes
  • Limited patient engagement: Patients were not actively managing their condition, leading to poor adherence to treatment plans and medication regimens
  • Limited access to healthcare: Patients had limited access to healthcare providers, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, which further impacted patient outcomes
