Life365 Confirms Impressive Catalytic Health Partners Results
“Technology is a cornerstone of our integrated healthcare approach, enabling us to connect and engage with our members every day,” says Susan Cordts, CEO, and founder of Catalytic Health Partners. “Life365 is an important health technology partner that helps us to improve, change and save lives.”
Early results are impressive.
Utilizing Life365 technology and working with Arizona-based Catalytic Health Partners and 300 Medicaid patients in Tucson, a test version produced a 65 percent reduction in emergency room visits, a 40 percent drop in hospitalizations and an estimated 30 percent increase in clinical workflow efficiency.
“We look at the patient, the disease, their age, how adept they are with tech, their economic status and whether they have access to the internet, so we can find the right solution for that patient,” says Kent Dicks, CEO of Life365 and twice named Arizona’s health care innovator of the year. “We take all the solutions that exist today to connect the patient at home, to try to keep them out of the hospital and get the right data to the doctor.”
The system works best for those with chronic conditions, such as diabetes. Congestive heart failure patients are a key target because a hospital is reimbursed less if they return within 30 days. Mobile monitoring can help avoid that. The system also works well with kidney patients who are able to do their dialysis at home and send readings to their doctor or health center.
