MCALLEN, Texas, Sept. 21, 2022 (Newswire.com) —
Accuhealth is pleased to announce today that, based on the average cost of $13,800 per trip to hospital published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Accuhealth’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) program has resulted in savings of over $100 million US dollars for the healthcare system with 7,246 avoided hospital visits. RPM is not just a major cost-saver, it’s a fundamental service for today’s value-based care model, empowering physicians with the right tools and keeping patients happy, healthy and out of the hospital.
The US has one of the highest healthcare costs in the world. In 2020, healthcare spending reached $4.1 trillion, averaging over $12,530 per person. The significant cost savings of Accuhealth’s RPM program directly contribute to lowering the total cost of healthcare for every American, with significant cost savings for Medicare. RPM is an economically viable option for marginalized patients who typically lack the access and resources for value-based care. Keeping patients out of the hospital leads to measurable health improvements through RPM.
Stephen Samson, CEO of Accuhealth, commented: “$100 million in savings this year alone is something we’re particularly proud of – numbers don’t lie and RPM is here to stay, has one in a relatively short period of time achieved monumental change in the delivery of health services. The gap between patient and doctor is finally being closed. Accuhealth RPM is a cost-effective way to improve quality of life while reducing trips to the hospital for patients, increasing efficiency for providers and extending care beyond the hospital walls. Everyone wins with remote patient monitoring and I am pleased that Accuhealth has reached this important milestone.”
Multiple studies have shown that RPM reduces costs and improves health outcomes. The Veterans Health Administration recently determined that the benefits of RPM can reduce hospital admissions by up to 40% for some diseases and generate annual savings of $6,500 per patient. Insurance Journal estimates that RPM could potentially deliver over $6 billion per year in healthcare savings in the US if the technology is widely adopted. According to a study by Deloitte, RPM is projected to save $200 billion in global healthcare costs over the next 25 years, and not only will patients have the convenience of staying at home while experiencing improved quality of care with RPM, it is likely to far less expensive than frequent hospital visits.
