Improved outcomes for your patients with chronic disease.
As this region's technology leader, C Spire has a mission to bring life-enhancing innovations to Mississippians, as part of the C Spire Tech Movement. Working together with the UMMC Center for Telehealth, a National Telehealth Center of Excellence, we are excited to offer remote patient monitoring (RPM) services through C Spire technology, to help support your patients and practice.
The Mississippi Diabetes Telehealth Network, a pilot program with C Spire, UMMC Telehealth, and Care Innovations, yielded measurable results including:
83%compliance with scheduled health session
9cases of diabetic retinopathy detected that would otherwise have gone undiagnosed
As one of the latest advancements in medical care, remote patient monitoring gives primary care physicians a proven and effective new tool to help manage chronic illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease. While remote patient monitoring can help manage many kinds of patients with chronic illness, it is particularly useful in reaching and serving:
Our most rural communities
Immobile patients or those without transportation
With remote patient monitoring, your patients complete daily health and education sessions from home using a tablet computer and Bluetooth devices that measure biometrics and vital signs. If a patient misses a session or if measurements are outside the desired range, a UMMC Registered Nurse follows up to assist the patient. The result:
Increased patient compliance
Faster detection and treatment
Improved patient outcomes
Remote patient monitoring from UMMC and C Spire gives you, and your patients, more control over chronic disease care. We encourage you to try it for a limited time with select patients, so you can see the benefits for yourself.Get Started Today
