MobileHelp® Healthcare Shares Tools for Home Health Agency Value-based Reimbursement

Allowing home health agencies to capitalize on new reimbursement opportunities, MobileHelp® Healthcare, a leader in personal and enterprise healthcare technology solutions, will be showcasing its MobileHelp Touch with MobileVitals – a remote patient monitoring (RPM) solution with integrated emergency response capabilities – at its vendor table at the 2019 Casamba customer conference,Partners In Progress, at the Bellagio resort and casino.

Designed to provide patients with an easy-to-use RPM solution as well as the ability to access emergency help if they need it, the MobileHelp Touch seamlessly fits into a variety of care models.

Its remote capture of daily physiological data such as blood pressure, weight, pulse oximeter and blood glucose levels can be incorporated into the patient’s EHR and allow home health agencies to better manage a patient’s health in between visits, even when a nurse is not physically in the patient’s home.

A well-known thought leader on PDGM and PDPM, Casamba added the MobileHelp RPM solution to their clinical offering in anticipation of the new value-based reimbursement models from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), scheduled to go into effect in late 2019 and early 2020.

In addition to showcasing the RPM solution Casamba is utilizing at the conference, Chris A. Otto, Senior Vice President of MobileHelp Healthcare, will join in one of the highlighted customer conference panel discussions titled, “Gaining Efficiencies with Remote Patient Monitoring and Telehealth for Home Health and Hospice Care” on May 30th at 2:30 p.m.

“We know better management of patients reduces hospital readmissions, increases reimbursement opportunities and results in better patient outcomes,” said Chris A. Otto, Senior Vice President of MobileHelp Healthcare. “I look forward to sharing insights on how home health and hospice agencies can leverage telehealth solutions now and, in the future, to achieve those goals and be better positioned for new reimbursement opportunities as they become available.”
