US-based healthcare non-profit Montage Health has introduced Montage Health Connected Care, an at-home patient monitoring service powered by clinical software provider Cadence.
The new service is designed to improve the quality and accessibility of care for patients with chronic conditions.
It is initially focusing on hypertension, congestive heart failure and type 2 diabetes, but will later expand to include other conditions.
Montage Medical Group CEO Dr Mark Carvalho said: “This programme reduces emergency department trips because we are extending care into the patient’s home.
“It is a win-win for patients and clinicians. Our patients will have access from home to an expanded care team.
“Our clinicians gain better visibility into disease progression and benefit from the support of a nurse and practitioner-led care team helping to keep patients safe.”

The programme combines remote monitoring technology with a clinical care team led by nurse practitioners to monitor patients’ vitals in real-time, provide medication and coaching support and improve health outcomes.
It involves the use of remote vitals-monitoring smart devices by patients in combination with telephone conversations with Montage’s multidisciplinary healthcare team.
Montage said the initiative has a proven track record in improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare costs.
Cadence CEO and founder Chris Altchek said: “Montage Health exemplifies best-in-class preventative, restorative and coordinated care with their strong track record of innovative programmes and collaborative partnerships.
“We’re thrilled to be their partner, expanding access to quality care and delivering greater peace of mind to patients with chronic conditions.”
Based in Monterey, California, Montage Health aims to offer personalised, value-based care to enhance patients’ overall wellbeing.
The company aims to coordinate care across all settings to meet each patient’s goals and needs.
Its subsidiaries include Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, Montage Medical Group, Montage Health Foundation, Montage Wellness Center, Aspire Health and MoGo Urgent Care.
