Aging in place aligns with the healthcare needs of seniors in rural America and the stakeholders responsible for their care. Through remote patient monitoring and communication with trained professionals, OverSightMD makes it possible to improve health outcomes, speed up the delivery of care, and reduce the costs incurred by payers and at risk care organizations serving rural communities.
The OverSightMD aging in place solutions break the traditional barriers that have impeded seniors in rural communities from accessing the same level of care as those living in urban and suburban areas. Access to healthcare is important for physical, social, and mental health and leads to dramatic changes in disease prevention, detecting and treating illnesses resulting in a better quality of life and a longer life expectancy according to Healthy People 2020. The OverSightMD communication hub, medical alert with fall detection, push button care coordination and remote patient monitoring devices brings to access to healthcare directly into the home.
“Our solution takes into account the specific needs of seniors in rural communities by providing technology options that fit within the requirements of their personal environment. We understand a cell tower may not be in the reach of every senior we service and must rely on either a landline or broadband solution to communicate,” says Mark Godwin CEO of OverSightMD, “our partner network allows us to install and train seniors on the solution in most locations throughout rural America and connect them to our centralized network of healthcare professionals that can service their daily needs.”
OverSightMD aging in place solutions offers four levels of support depending on the health needs of each individual enrolled in the Push Button Care program.
