Moving toward value-based care, organizations are identifying ways to lower healthcare costs – with a focus on reducing emergency and hospital utilization.

 

Utilizing a randomized controlled trial, Partners HealthCare leveraged the Philips Cares Senior Care Management solution to identify senior patients who became high risk, triggering personalized care interventions for those patients. This research offers insights on how predictive analytics combined with tailored interventions helps prioritize senior patients needing care across the mid-acuity segment, exhibiting positive impact on outcomes and costs, including a 61% reduction in 90-day readmissions.1

 

With lower-cost solutions to proactively manage patients in their home to help you intervene before their health conditions escalate, you can reduce avoidable hospitalizations and costs, helping to reduce the burden on your care teams and improve outcomes.
