West Moreton reducing readmissions with MeCare remote monitoring service

Queensland's West Moreton Hospital and Health Service has seen a reduction of almost 30 per cent in potentially preventable hospitalisations at Ipswich Hospital of chronically ill patients since the introduction of its MeCare remote monitoring program in late 2016.

The HHS has partnered with Philips to introduce the program to about 130 patients at risk of hospitalisation so far, using Philips' eCareCompanion telemonitoring platform and tailored management plans in a program dubbed MeCare.
