This year has been a turning point in so many aspects of life – Remote Work, Remote Meetings, Remote Classes, etc., but the most significant, life-changing experience while still being the absolute need for the hour is Remote Care. COVID-19 has caused a massive acceleration in the use of Virtual Health. We have defined a new normal that sees many providers, payers, patients and businesses adopting a better care delivery experience, which further creates a more efficient delivery system.
Since the onset of the crisis, Vivify Health has been at the front lines supporting the healthcare workers and system. And the latest to join hands is C Spire.
C Spire is teaming up with the Delta Regional Medical Center to launch Vivify Health’s Remote Patient Monitoring program in Mississippi for a broad array of chronic medical conditions that will help manage health care costs for hospitals in rural areas and improve the quality of life for patients.
According to data from the Department of Health, Mississippi, at 37.3%, has the second-highest rate of adult obesity in the nation with 13.6% of estimated diabetes prevalence, which is significantly higher than the national average of 10.5%.
“We’re excited about being the first hospital to work with C Spire and Vivify Health to implement this hospital and patient-friendly platform in Mississippi,” said Scott Christensen, Chief Executive Officer for Delta Regional Medical Center. “Through proactive, daily digital monitoring, we’re confident we can reduce fluctuating episodic care while primary care physicians stay advised and in control of patients’ well being.”
Smith further added the platform allows hospitals and doctors to follow patient biometrics, medication adherence, diet and other health choices.
Recently, Vivify Health has been in the news for treating an 88-year-old woman, who broke her left pelvis in three places but spent zero nights in the hospital and fully recovered. Instead, she made a complete recovery from her home, leveraging Vivify Health’s Remote patient monitoring platform.
Vivify Health cares for the communities we serve and takes pride in associating with C Spire as we firmly believe that RPM is a game-changer. We look forward to partnering with providers, payers, and businesses, enabling them to build new capabilities that could lead to success in connected care delivery models.
