Vital Insights is a podcast from EarlySense and is designed to discuss the ever-evolving changing dynamics within health and digital health technology with thought leaders – and how those changes are helping providers and clinicians transform the way we care for patients, now and in the future.
A New Era of Healthcare
EarlySense recently announced a major new research venture with market research firm Parks Associates, which led to the development of a comprehensive new whitepaper titled, Health at Home: New Era of Healthcare. The whitepaper examines the state of the virtual care market, with particular emphasis on the factors driving the shift from facility-centric care to healthcare at home.
As author of the whitepaper, Jennifer Kent joined Vital Insights to talk about the confluence of factors driving the expansion of healthcare into the home.
Giving Telehealth a Seat at the Legislative Table
According to a new report from Presidents Lane Consulting, in partnership with three think tanks Reason Foundation, Pioneer Institute, and Cicero Institute, millions of Americans tried telehealth for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic. To support that use during the public health crisis, federal officials made changes to Medicare and governors advanced health access with flexible waivers. But… what happens when the public health crisis is over?
The new report and accompanying toolkit, titled Rating the States on Telehealth Best Practices: A Toolkit for a Pro-Patient and Provider Landscape, aim to help state policymakers implement best practices for ensuring that providers and patients can fully realize the benefits of using telehealth services in perpetuity.
Josh Archambault, Founder of Presidents Lane Consulting, joined Vital Insights to talk about the new report.
Turning "Sick Care" into "Healthy Care"
With the passing of the Affordable Care Act years ago, one of biggest changes was the shift from fee-for-service care to value-based care. And underpinning that shift was a concept called the Quadruple Aim, or the drive to 1) improve the patient care experience, 2) improve the health of a population, 3) reduce per capita health care costs and 4) improve the clinical experience.
Mike Braham joins this episode of Vital Insights to delve into the often-discussed Quadruple Aim and how technology is helping to turn "sick care" into "healthy care" for patients.
Vital Insight on Location: A Follow-up on the Choose Home Act of 2021
Join us for our second conversation with Bob Holly, editor of Home Health Care News, as we revisit the legislative progress of the Choose Home Care Act of 2021 – and what the path forward looks like.
How Full-stack Software Stacks Up in the RPM Industry
The essential idea behind remote patient monitoring seems easy: the patient takes their vital signs at home and in some cases answers a health questionnaire, the data is provided to their doctor, possibly with special alerts when vitals are out of range, and the doctor can then assess their health on a daily basis and provide better care. But deriving value out of such patient generated data is not always straightforward, especially when you have hundreds, or even thousands of patients. How do you address issues of different care protocols between different providers or health systems to ensure a solution can seamlessly merge with existing workflows? Our next guest focused on those issues to bring their solution to market.
David Yavin joins Vital Insights to walk us through how Datos Health has worked with healthcare providers to ensure its full-stack software platform seamlessly merges with existing workflows to equip care teams with the tools they need to remotely manage complex clinical protocols and automate personalized remote care.
How Caregiving is the Catalyst for Technology Advancement
As the founder of EarlySense, our guest for this episode of Vital Insights, Avner Halperin, has a deep history in the pursuit of technology use in the healthcare space to address gaps in care. He is the current CEO of EyeControl, a company established by individuals who share personal connections to loved ones with locked-in conditions. The communication barriers they experience initialized product development, and are also used with ventilated patients, including those in COVID-19 isolation. Join us as we explore how technology, AI and remote patient monitoring can revolutionize the way we connect in care for one another.
