High Quality, Low Cost HealthCare Video Interview Series: Robert Herzog and eCaring
Last week we heard Martha Bebinger talk about using her website HealthCareSavvy to shop for healthcare. This week, Robert Herzog will show us the CareManager and CareTracker from eCaring. I met Robert at the Engage Pavillion at the mHealthSummit conference in Washington DC. I know about eCaring because Melody Wilding is a contributor here on HealthWorks Collective. I was glad to see that eCaring was one of the companies chosen by Aging2.0 and mHealth to be part of the group of exhibitors in the Engage Pavillion.
Remote patient monitoring is a explosive field right now. If we can keep patients healthy and safe at home, we can reduce emergency visits, hospitaliztions and therefore reduce costs and maintain or raise quality of care. Hospitals are penalized for readmssions and so they also want to keep patients safe in the home environment.
I visited quite a few companies who had remote monitoring systems, but thought eCaring's system was exceptional. It is very easy to use, with icons and color-coding, easy to read and understand screens and simple instructions. Please watch Robert's demonstration here on the video.
