Implementing ATC Alert's remote patient monitoring program with New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital saved lives and achieved high patient satisfaction in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Telemedicine and E-health, the leading peer-reviewed journal for telemedicine applications, recently published a paper overviewing New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital's (NYPBMH) engagement with ATC Alert's remote patient monitoring (RPM) program. NYPBMH engaged the services of ATC Alert, a leading connected health company, during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in NYC. Together, they worked to rapidly implement a successful RPM program monitoring low to moderate-risk COVID-19 patients from their homes under the direction of care algorithms set forth by leadership at NYPBMH.
The engagement developed as NYPBMH was inundated with COVID-19 patients, leading to limited manpower and resources at the onset of the pandemic and needed a trusted partner to responsibly alleviate the hospital's burden. ATC Alert leveraged its current RPM technology, which is widely used by physicians in the tristate area, along with its 24/7 nursing staff to develop a COVID-19 RPM program allowing NYPBMH to discharge the patients into ATC Alert's RPM care. ATC Alert jumped into action and created and implemented the program in under thirty days allowing for immediate assistance to an overburdened healthcare system.
"Since launching ATC Alert's RPM program, our mission has been to provide high quality care for patients in-and-out of the physician's office," says Jordan S. Savitsky, CEO of ATC Alert. "During this trying time, we were able to act fast due to our turn-key end-to-end RPM solution and provide assistance to the great doctors and nurses of NYPBMH."
The results of this engagement showed high patient satisfaction with ATC Alert's RPM program and led NYPBMH to conclude that "Telehealth and RPM's concurrent use with a third-party vendor (ATC Alert) could be successfully utilized for safe discharges with high patient satisfaction."
