Tampa General Hospital (TGH) has extended its partnership with Signallamp Health on a new remote chronic care management programme.

This programme intends to provide at-home care services to patients with chronic conditions such as pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure and high blood pressure.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), people getting care at home have a 26% reduced risk of readmission to the hospital and lesser long-term care admission risk compared to hospitalised patients.

The first tie-up between the duo was reached in 2021 for chronic care management followed by the addition of remote patient monitoring the next year.

The same year TGH also struck an alliance with a digital health connectivity company, Stel Life on the system’s hardware and software.

This new collaboration will utilise Signallamp’s technology platform, which doesn’t require the use of smartphones or Wi-Fi.

Patients can plug into a hub and use wireless monitoring devices such as a blood pressure cuff approved by their TGH provider.

These devices communicate to the hub and that information will be shared with Tampa General medical teams such as primary care physicians, clinical pharmacists, and speciality providers.

More than 1,200 medication discrepancies were identified and addressed with remote patient monitoring, with more than 40,000 net new patient engagements.

Tampa General Medical Group vice-president Dr Karna Patel said: “Improving the patient experience and lowering total cost of care, requires increased primary care capacity.

“This programme gives our patients expanded access, personalisation and a constant connection with their doctors, who can stay in front of issues and prevent avoidable hospitalisations.”
