Collaboration to provide ability to monitor, manage and analyze vital signs from post-acute care patients
Accelerated Care Plus (ACP), a Hanger, Inc. (NYSE: HNGR) company, today announced a partnership with Current Health, a global leader in remote healthcare delivery. ACP, the nation’s leading provider of specialized rehabilitation technologies and evidence-based clinical solutions for post-acute providers, will distribute Current Health’s remote monitoring platform, co-branded as OmniVitals Powered by Current Health, to the post-acute care market through ACP’s network of more than 7,000 post-acute care facilities.
“OmniVitals Powered by Current Health provides a strong value proposition to the post-acute care market by equipping facilities with the ability to passively capture continuous vital signs 24/7 with ICU-level accuracy,” shared ACP President Deb Koepsel. “We are thrilled to partner with Current Health to allow post-acute care facilities the ability to monitor, manage, and engage with their patients like never before.”
OmniVitals Powered by Current Health will leverage Current Health’s wearable device to continuously monitor patients’ respiration rate, oxygen saturation, mobility and step count, pulse rate, body temperature, and spirometry to provide a full, contextual picture of health. This data, analyzed along with patient-reported symptoms within the Current Health platform, allows care teams to identify patients at risk for disease exacerbation and intervene early. The system is available to ACP customers as of November 2020.
“With the ability to identify at-risk patients earlier, we can help post-acute care facilities more effectively manage patients,” said Current Health Co-Founder and CEO Christopher McCann. “Integrating remote monitoring into ACP’s base of post-acute care facilities helps reduce the patient monitoring burden while exposing otherwise undetected health events, allowing for more proactive intervention.”
