    Well stated Dr Storm. We have utilized mHealth for several years via the HF Defender platform. The solution provides real-time direct connection with, and management of, the patient (and caregiver or home health agency) to their heart failure specialist. The ridiculous concept and days of nurse call centers and inadequately trained personnel trying to manage “sick patients” (i.e. recently hospitalized) and then getting them back to the physician (because their clinics are overbooked) once they are “better” are eliminated by the advancement of this type of technology. Appropriate mHealth and telemedicine offers this provision today. Appropriate meaning not simply using “technology” to speed up the same old processes that have yielded an abysmal rate of readmissions and unnecessary admissions. Providers and Health Care Executives must insure that we are not utilizing self-defeating technology but rather embracing technology that legitimately revolutionizes the care of our patients. Thank you for your insight.

    Launching “Call Bell”, a Home Infusion Support Application from Citus Health

    Home infusion patients need answers day & night.”Call Bell” provides real time messaging with your staff. Patients will feel connected 24 hours a day.

    Home health care is changing the dynamics of the patient-provider relationship, but many home infusion providers are still using traditional and inefficient patient support and communication methods. The result is an unacceptable trend: increased costs for decreased patient satisfaction. Citus Health brings modern technological solutions that eliminate the need for costly and ineffective methods of servicing patients.

    Today we introduce this new technology to the home infusion industry with Call Bell.
