Casamba, a provider of electronic health record software in Agoura Hills, has partnered with MobileHelp Healthcare of Boca Raton, Fla., to offer home health agencies a platform for remote patient monitoring.
Casamba will add the remote monitoring to its clinical offerings in anticipation of a new value-based reimbursement model from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, scheduled to go into effect in late 2019 and early 2020.
The remote platform will capture blood pressure readings, as well as weight, pulse and blood glucose levels, allowing home health agencies to better manage a patient’s health between visits. Technology from MobileHelp will allow clients to manage a spectrum of patients grouped by health diagnosis on one dashboard, instead of managing multiple online applications.
“Our partnership with MobileHelp Healthcare is another highly-differentiated way we can support our existing and new clients,” said Luis Montes, senior vice president of strategic partnerships for Casamba.
