30-Day Hospital Readmission Rate Reduction Program Hospitals are responsible for controlling readmissions within 30 days of discharge and are looking to partner with home health agencies that can facilitate lower readmissions. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that agencies demonstrate their ability to reduce rehospitalizations and improve patient outcomes. HEALTHCAREfirst and Continuity Health offer a layered technology platform to assist home health agencies in reducing hospital readmission rates and positioning themselves as valuable resources to hospital partners.
This program includes: Telehealth for use with every patient, for:
- Daily Medication Reminders • Daily Custom Health Assessment Questions with
- Interactive Voice Response technology (expandable to traditional Remote Patient Monitoring)
- Electronic Communications Portal that works with your current back office software in facilitating the trac king and signing of orders, care plans and other communications
- Automatic Care Plan Oversight capture and reporting for physicians
The ALLY® Home Appliance offers patients a user friendly, voice guided experience for providing feedback of current health status to their care providers. ALLY® offers your patients the flexibility of different interaction modes for gathering vital signs and questions answers during these virtual assessments. Patients may choose to complete the assigned Dynamic Health Assessment™ on daily basis but also encouraged to just submit a vital sign when they are not feeling well.
Customize the technology to the patient
ALLY® Assessment extends our traditional model of telehealth by offering alternative methods for your patients to participate in for your organization disease management program. Founded on a principle an “engaged patient” is a “better patient”. ALLY® Assessment translates our Dynamic Health Assessments (DHA)™ technology into a simple, web browser access for patients who have a personal computer. Theses assessments integrate seamlessly back into the patient's record for the telehealth nurse to process.
Today’s healthcare environment is more demanding than ever. Managing care coordination of the highest risk patients requires timely information being processed at a faster pace. While the adoption of telemonitoring technology enables the gathering of more accurate and timely information, it creates operational challenges.

Clinical trials are research studies that determine whether vaccines, drugs, new therapies or new treatments are safe and effective. These trials are offered to the human population after researchers have tested various procedures in laboratories and on animals. The major benefit of participating in clinical trials is the chance to gain access to the latest “discovery” and hopefully, the most advanced form of treatment. For someone who is becoming blind, dying of cancer or in great pain, a clinical trial may sound very appealing and may greatly improve their quality of life. But, there are definite risks. So you should do your own research to make sure that the benefits outweigh the risks.
Clinical trials can be literal lifesavers. Just make sure that whoever offers the clinical trial is credible, is part of a highly regarded medical and/or academic institution and is forthright about the risks and who is funding the research study.
