Virtual Health

Enhancing the patient experience and improving patient management by leveraging the power of telemonitoring and teleconsultation.

Our virtual health solutions are improving healthcare by engaging patients and care teams outside of traditional in-person healthcare visits. For the largest telehealth program in the world, we lead device management, biometric data collection, and health data analysis that has yielded a 20 percent reduction in hospital admissions, a 25 percent reduction in number of days admitted, and an 86 percent satisfaction rating by delivering a program that aligns with the rapidly evolving needs of a patient population.

An alternative to other public and commercial home-based care programs, Cognosante’s telehealth offering is saving organizations as much as 97 percent patient annually.* Daily, meaningful care is enhanced and provided continually and remotely—simplifying interactions between patients and care providers. Cognosante achieves this through the tailored and purposeful use of technologies such as mobile devices, traditional telephone lines, and Bluetooth patient-monitoring devices such as scales, blood pressure cuffs, pulse oximeters, and more.

Our solution is rooted in outreach, care coordination, and clinical response practices and bolstered by innovative technology to ensure an optimal patient experience. With Cognosante, healthcare providers are streamlining patient care without sacrificing patient satisfaction by:

  • Applying care and case management principles to coordinate care using disease management, health informatics, and a range of Internet-enabled technologies to best fit the needs of the patient.
  • Leveraging the Internet of Things to facilitate home-based teleconsultation services. Through our teleSante™ app, we offer seamless integration of third-party healthcare frameworks including Apple HealthKit and Google Fit for a more complete picture of an individual’s clinical and patient-generated health data.
  • Integrating teleSante™ with health information exchange standards, making telemonitoring data available as part of the longitudinal health record.
  • Packaging our solutions for virtual health with a comprehensive approach to outreach, training, and support services; simplifying the experience for users of all technological capabilities.
