Unnecessary transports and avoidable ER visits have caused healthcare costs to soar. RemoteMD is helping to reverse that.
In a recent RemoteMD pilot program unnecessary transports were reduced by 86% and 30-day readmissions were eliminated entirely.
“RemoteMD’s revolutionary approach to initial admittance exams lets us design the most effective treatment, prevention and follow-up plans to virtually eliminate the need for 30-day hospital readmissions. Savings to the healthcare system could be in the billions.”
Director of Telemedicine, RemoteMD
CMS paid $4.34 billion in 2018 due to 30-day readmits; 78% of visits were deemed avoidable, resulting in $3.39 billion in unnecessary expense.
The CDC reported 130 million ER visits in 2018; only 12% resulted in admissions.
UnitedHealth Group reported 67% of hospital ER visits in 2018 were avoidable.
23.5% of patients admitted to ALF/SNF resulted in 30-day readmits with an average Medicare payment of $10,352.
Of those 65+ 28% resulted in admissions, suggesting up to 72% of these costly, risky, and time-consuming transports were unnecessary.
An average non-emergent ER visit costs $2,032 compared to $200-$300 for a Telehealth visit.
More about how RemoteMD innovative approach can benefit your residents and their families, your staff, and your organization
When the PCP is unavailable (or there isn’t one) our medical providers – all highly skilled in emergency medicine, Telehealth, and virtual delivery of personalized care – are instantly available 24/7 through our website and telemedicine platform – without an appointment, and in time to prevent life-threatening infections, such as sepsis and MRSA.
For the organization, meeting or exceeding CMS thresholds for readmissions reduces costs, averts fines, and provides “bonus” opportunities that come with excelling in controlling CMS costs – all while delivering a higher quality of care.
In addition to the comfort and safety that comes with treating residents onsite, our innovative approach provides:
We don’t replace your team, alter or interfere with their responsibilities. We augment your in-house skills and capabilities with the latest in Telehealth technologies and become a trusted partner in delivering superior, personalized healthcare within your community culture.
We are able to do that by installing state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and training your team to the highest and most exacting standards on how to:
Working with your highly-trained team of professional caregivers, RemoteMD is able to:
Based on thorough, factual, real-time information, our providers can determine if the resident should be transported elsewhere, or if they can receive the needed medical care right where they are – more comfortably and with less stress, risk and cost. If transport or specialty care is needed, our physician communicates with the receiving physician.
In all situations, medical records are created/updated for each visit. We ensure continuity of care by providing complete information to the PCP, and faxing directly from eClinicalWorks (ECW) to the community’s Medical Director and providers. If the resident does not have a PCP, we continue to work with your staff to monitor progress and conduct follow-up visits. [On the horizon: RemoteMD’s partnership with PointClickCare which means integration will be immediate and seamless for communities using PCC.]
Elevate the Care Connection
Your people work hard to maintain a caring connection with each of your residents, and so do we. We work in concert with your staff to keep everyone connected and communicating – medical personnel, staff, residents and caring family members.
Ensure early detection and prevention of worsening conditions or illnesses.
Virtual Monthly Wellness Meetings:
Provide opportunities for family members to participate in video conferences with the Medical Provider during medical exams, routine checks, and as needed to ensure a clear understanding of the resident’s condition and treatment plan.
Conferences with Medical Provider:
Raise confidence and comfort level of family members faced with making difficult decisions about their loved ones.
Initial Admittance Assessment:
Drastically reduce 30-day readmissions through a revolutionary approach designed to determine a resident’s “risk score,” which forms the basis for the most effective treatment plan, preventive care, and follow-up schedule to eliminate the need for 30-day hospital readmission. The process encompasses a thorough medical exam, including full medical history, allergies, medication/medication reconciliation; and conferences with the resident, staff, family members, pharmacist (when needed), and a RemoteMD medical provider.

convenience by conducting virtual visits onsite any time without an appointment, or when the PCP or community Medical Director is unavailable
everyone time by eliminating the need to work around appointments times, travel time, and wait time at a provider’s office or ER
