From HealthITNews:

The Einstein Medical Center wanted to decrease readmissions for liver failure patients by 50 percent. Caregivers had a longtime interest in the potential for remote patient monitoring and turned to telehealth technology to address this mandate.

Thus far, since implementing the RPM processes, the hospital has gone more than two months without any readmissions.

“The problems we encountered included issues that come up with all patients with a severe chronic illness,” said Richard Kalman, MD, assistant professor of medicine SKMC in the department of digestive disease and transplantation in the division of hepatology at the Albert Einstein Healthcare Network in Philadelphia.

Despite requiring all patients to attend follow-up appointments within two weeks, the readmission rate still was 40 percent. Patients often would come to the clinic and be readmitted directly because they were too sick, or would be called to come to the hospital for severe laboratory abnormalities, or would present to the emergency room feeling sick due to non-compliance.
