As one of the leading digital healthcare enablers, Aura Health is proud to be making a difference in healthcare with virtual technology that ensures better connectivity than ever for patients and their physicians. Based on the concept of virtual care, our arsenal of advanced health care solutions is improving trust, boosting patient outcomes, guaranteeing patient satisfaction, and more importantly, helping to save lives. Here is a closer look at our digital healthcare solutions, and how they are ensuring the right care by uplifting patient-clinician engagement.
1. Telehealth services take out rural care barriers
Location is among the leading reasons why many people don’t get the medical help they need when they need it. Particularly when it comes to rural areas, geographical limitations can curtail access to good healthcare for those living there.
In fact, one report by Harvard found that 25% of the rural population couldn’t get to health facilities in time, with distance one of the reasons to blame. In addition, rural care facilities have been on a downward spiral. We’ve seen 100 of them close shop in the past decade while many more remain under threat of closure.
With Aura’s telehealth solutions, however, some of these issues can be solved by:
- Taking out the distance factor between rural health care nodes
- Eliminating or decreasing driving time for patients
- Providing access to specialists even in areas with a skills shortage
Moreover, this also means that these telehealth solutions are also making it easier for patients with mobility issues- such as the physically handicapped- to get better and more convenient access to healthcare.
2. The care process is expedited to ensure timely care
The right care is also care provided at the right time. For example, today, it remains a thorn in the foot to point patients in the way of the right provider promptly. The traditional order of business may mean a few extra visits to their primary doctor, an urgent care clinic, or the ER. By the time patients get to the right provider, their condition has already worsened
But that all changes with the digital health solution provider, Aura Health. An on-demand video visit can give a physician a front-row look at the patient’s symptoms without the patient having to come in. It proves a much better way to get details of the situation compared to a phone call for example. Ultimately, the consultation can lead to better recommendations that ensure patients are sent to the right healthcare provider at the first time of asking.
3. Access to patient data within just a few clicks
Part of the reason why clinical care decisions are delayed is due to data issues. Often, it may take a while for the primary care physician to get all the data they need for a new treatment plan or treatment changes. That is usually confined to physical examinations and doctor appointments with there being no way, until now, for caregivers to know what happens in between.
Aura Health is changing the status quo one patient at a time. For example, our RPM technology, a top digital patient monitoring solution, is ensuring faster access to patient data. Connecting health devices such as glucometers, BP cuffs, biosensors, and more, doctors get ready access to vital data in near real-time from one unified solution. With patient data just a few clicks away, patient-clinician engagement improves. And so too do patient outcomes.
4. Better long-term chronic care and patient involvement with RPM
Did you know that 60% of the US population lives with a chronic illness? Today, that translates to over 133 million Americans, who, studies show, have at least either one of the following:
- Heart disease
And things are set to further go from bad to worse, with the AHA estimating that that figure could hit 170 million within the coming decade.
A few chronic conditions in particular could benefit from chronic care management services involving RPM. Chief among them is Diabetes. One 2020 study particularly showed RPM had tremendous results for type 2 diabetes, helping patients to lower arc levels in 24 weeks by 2.2%
That aside, RPM also allows chronic patient care patients to take more responsibility for their own care. RPM patients have the ability to keep tabs on their health data and track the changes as they occur. This level of independence, coupled with convenient physician check-ups by way of virtual care technology, drives not just engagement but treatment adherence as well.
5. Patient centricity made possible by UNICA
Aura’s remote patient monitoring technology, and particularly UNICA, is making it easier than ever to personalize care, which is key to guaranteeing better health outcomes.
Thanks to data-driven patient care processes that lead to hyper-personalization, hospitals can reap the following benefits:
- A reduction in readmission rates: With advanced analytics made possible by RPM technology, it becomes easier to pick up on early signs of health deterioration
- Now, healthcare is also drifting toward a wellness-focused approach. In other words, RPM technology is ensuring patients can keep track of their health data, without necessarily having to be sick. In short, there’s a more proactive approach to healthcare
Moreover, the personalization of care made possible by RPM is elevating patient satisfaction levels. In a study by the University of Pittsburgh, RPM was able to realize 9 in 10 satisfied patients from over 1,500 RPM patients within just 2 years of deployment.
