For patients with a chronic disease, such as congestive heart failure, Continuous Ambulatory Remote Engagement Services (CARES) lets patients reside at home with the peace of mind knowing their condition is being monitored every day.
The Continuous Ambulatory Remote Engagement Services (CARES) program uses digital technology deployed to the patient’s home to monitor daily vital signs and biometric data. The nursing team also provides coaching and reinforcement of educational topics such as medication adherence, diet, activity and the importance of daily testing.
By detecting subtle changes in a patient's vital sign trends, visits to the emergency department or re-hospitalizations are reduced or prevented.
If a patient receives home care services, CARES augments their care. It does not replace scheduled home care visits.
Patients with an LVPG primary care provider or cardiologist are eligible for CARES.
