The business of healthcare has undergone seismic change over the decades, and Connect America has continued to grow and innovate in support of its broad national network of provider partners. In the recent development, Connect America, the country’s largest independent provider of personal emergency response systems (PERS), has been named “Best Home Healthcare Solutions Provider” by Healthcare Tech Outlook for ConnectVitals. ConnectVitals is a SaaS-based real-time telehealth solution that offers a user-friendly end-to-end solution featuring a unique patient and service provider’s portals. Jim Reilly, Vice President, Healthcare Division at Connect America says, “On behalf of everyone at Connect America, we are so grateful to receive this esteemed award recognizing category excellence for our ConnectVitals remote patient monitoring (RPM) platform.” Jim further adds, “ConnectVitals was designed to be highly practitioner and patient-friendly, with customizable solutions that are rented, not sold – meaning practitioners are only charged monthly for what is in the field, not what is in their inventory, and patients are getting only the equipment they need. This makes for easy adoption at every level for both patients and providers.”

Connect America also offers training to home healthcare professionals as part of their overall connected health services. The Connect America team educates the trainees about how to interface with patients regarding the deployment and proper use of medical devices. The team also helps the home healthcare professionals to stay abreast of new trends and regulations in the HHC industry, and effectively respond to alerts and emergencies. To add to its overall industry leadership, Connect America recently acquired Tunstall Americas, a well-known player in connected health services

Alex D'souza, Managing Editor, Healthcare Tech Outlook says, “The business of healthcare has changed dramatically over the last 35 years, during which time Connect America has made some groundbreaking innovations in support of its broad national network of provider partners.” Alex further adds, “Connect America is a PERS leader and many acknowledge PERS as the original RPM solution. Over time, RPM has evolved to become a vital platform for home health providers and others in the healthcare continuum. We see the healthcare industry shifting more and more toward best-in-class remote patient monitoring solutions, and the ConnectVitals value-based care model is a favorite because it helps save hospitals and healthcare providers time and money by decreasing readmissions and reducing costs.”
