Telehealth is the most advanced remote patient monitoring platform that is focused on engaging patients and caregivers to reduce hospital readmissions. Puget Sound Home Health utilizes Telehealth to improve clinical outcomes and decrease costs to patients, providers and payers.
HRS was started at Johns Hopkins to address the main reasons for readmissions and ER visits including medication non-compliance, poor diet, lack of caregiver support and poor health literacy. Our innovative technology provides seamless communication and monitoring between patients, clinicians, and caregivers. Today, our telemonitoring platform is actively used by 80 leading medical centers and our clinical results have garnered national attention.

“Since launching with HRS we’ve had our best performance in terms of CHF readmission numbers. For the last two months, we’ve had zero thirty-day readmissions and our overall readmission rate stands at 4.4%. There’s a secret sauce here, engaging patients in their own self care management, providing them with tools for better outcomes.”
–Anne Norris, MD (CMO of Penn Care at Home)
“This is not your traditional telehealth. we are transforming our model of care delivery and using technology in different ways to engage and empower patients and family members.”—Andrea Lazarek-LaQuay (Chief Clinical Officer at VNA NY) “Reducing nursing visits per episode of care not only reduces the overall cost of care, but it also allows us to provide care to more patients with the same amount of staff. The return on investment is positive.”
—Patty Upham (Director of FirstHealth Home Care)
