US-based health care performance improvement company Vizient has partnered with medical suppliers for offering remote patient monitoring solutions in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Under the programme, which will see the participation of Medtronic Care Management Services and Zimmer Biomet, relief would be provided for hospitals from the strains of delivering patient care, monitoring and rehabilitation services brought on by the pandemic.

Designed as sustainable approaches to improve patient satisfaction, the latest resources and technology offerings address the immediate and unique needs of hospitals.

Vizient managing principal Erik Axter said: “We have heard the urgent and evolving needs of our member hospitals and have collaborated with several suppliers to deploy programmes that offer the technology, tools and support necessary for the wide variety of patients who need care in this new environment.

“These solutions create the framework for providers and suppliers to enhance their partnerships to improve patient care, which is the type of collaborative solutions our members have told us they are looking for.”

The programmes are focused on suppliers who can offer optimised telehealth support to patients and remote monitoring and rehabilitation services for those with implanted medical devices.
