SELECT TELEHEALTH CLINICAL OUTCOMES

Improving CHF Re-Admission Rates Through Telehealth Program
This study by Garcia, M., and Bradford, M., (2017) reviewed the impact of Medtronic Care Management Services (referred to as Cardiocom*) telehealth services for patients with congestive heart failure. It concluded that the telehealth program contributed to reduced hospitalizations, improved lifestyle behaviors, and improved quality of life for these patients.1

Telemonitoring Reduced Costs and Inpatient Visitation Rates for Patients with Advanced Cardiovascular Diseases
A study by Stanhope (2016) concluded that remote telemonitoring of advanced cardiovascular disease patients can reduce inpatient visits and associated medical costs. 2

Heart Failure Care Management Program Utilizing Telehealth Technology Yields Readmission Rates Lower than the State Average
A study by Stampehl, M. et al (2017) aimed to assess the impact on heart failure disease management using Medtronic Care Management Services telehealth technology in conjunction with a tele-homecare program. It concluded the heart failure care management program saw readmission rates below the state average in Illinois.3

Adherence to a Telehealth Heart Failure Program was Associated with Fewer Hospitalizations 
A study by Stampehl, M. et al (2017) found that heart failure patients who stick to their care management program with telehealth technology had fewer hospitalizations and better heart failure outcomes.4

Reduced Cost and Mortality Using Home Telehealth to Promote Self-Management of Complex Chronic Conditions: A Retrospective Matched Cohort Study of 4,999 Veteran Patients
This study by Darkins A, et al (2015) aimed to assess the efficacy of care coordinated telehealth to reduce institutional care. It concluded the care coordinated telehealth model was successful in reducing cost of care.5

Overcoming Barriers to Mobile Health Technology Use in the Aging Population
Research by Fletcher, J., and Jensen, R., (2015) aimed to understand solutions to barriers for the elderly population when using mobile health technology platforms. The barriers studied related to physical, acceptance, and technological design barriers. It concluded the use of mobile health platforms for with the elderly can be effective if concerns are addressed and assistance resources made available.6

The Effect of Telehealth on Mortality and ER Visits 
A study by Steventon (2012) found home-based telehealth to be associated with lower emergency room admission rates and patient mortality.7

Randomized Trial of a Daily Electronic Home Monitoring System in Patients with Advanced Heart Failure
A study by Goldberg, L. et al (2003) aimed to determine whether daily reporting of advanced heart failure patient weight and symptoms would reduce hospitalization and mortality. It concluded that mortality decreased in the remote monitoring group, without increasing healthcare utilization.8
