Let me introduce Unison Workforce’s “HOMECARE PATIENT MONITORING SERVICE” for supporting treatment of chronically ill patients at home. Unison Workforce has created a software platform and Caregiver service model to support seniors and others who struggle with managing their chronic health conditions. After years of serving home bound patients, our team has developed a health support system that will maintain connection between patients and clinicians. 86% of Medicare expenditures are for treating beneficiaries with chronic health conditions. Patients want to remain at home and receive care without exposing themselves to infections and illnesses found in hospitals and healthcare facilities.
Many chronically ill patients monitor their condition(s) with devices that measure blood sugar, blood pressure, weights or other measurements. Based on these results and personal health monitoring, the patient will perform treatments that are prescribed. Part of their routines also contain prevention activities like walking, exercise, or special diets that maintains health stability. Appointments with physicians are necessary to treat illness but also to maintain a custom care plan for the home. As time progresses, these routines breakdown for a host of reasons. Some of these reasons include the illness itself that prevent self-management. Other reasons are due to Social Determinants of Health like economics, education, access to healthcare, social connections or environment.
Caregivers serve a vital role in supporting personal health routines.
