June 2022: Solutions for Healthcare Workforce Shortages
“The Great Resignation” is an increasingly pressing phenomenon plaguing the health industry, as healthcare workers continue to flee in favor of more profitable or less stress-inducing positions. Or, aspiring healthcare workers may face barriers early in their career that prevent them from following through on the education. Multiple reasons combined, there simply are no longer enough workers to meet growing patient demand.
In our newest white paper, explore detailed solutions to addressing and solving these workforce shortages, one challenge at a time.
April 2022: Choosing the Right RPM Program for Your Community — A South Carolina Health Center Controlled Network Case Study
A success story worth celebrating! In a 12 month pilot program, SCHCCN partnered with Certintell to deliver RPM to multiple diabetic patients throughout the state. It was a test to see if we could equip patients with the right tools they needed to take charge of their health and improve their outcomes.
In this case study, we dive into the data from the program, which positively stated that more than 50 percent of the 72 participating patients had improved outcomes in one or more metrics, including weight, blood pressure and blood glucose.
Even more, we’ve compiled a checklist of questions to ask an RPM vendor to ensure you get the same level of inspiring results– or more! Plus, see advice for how to go about patient education when introducing a new program.
November 2021: Promoting Hypertension Self-Management in Diverse Populations
In diverse populations, there’s no clear path when it comes to reducing rates of hypertension. Historically, Mexican Americans, Black Americans and other Hispanics routinely achieve lower rates of blood pressure control compared to white Americans. External factors, such as social determinants of health and cultural understandings of blood pressure can all impact a patient’s perspective and how they go about following their care plan.
In this white paper, we dive into strategies to promote self-management of hypertension among diverse populations, in a culturally competent manner. It all starts with patient-centered, whole-person care, in which efforts can largely be driven by nurses who are equipped to monitor, treat and educate patients.
The six strategies presented to you in this white paper will help your care plans become patient co-authored for visibly improved results that satisfy patient and provider.
March 2021 : Prioritize Discharge Planning For Transitional Care Management
Transitional Care Management (TCM) is a way for primary care providers and specialists to furnish care on a continuum after a patient has been recently discharged. The care management billing service consists of reviewing discharge information, the need for follow-up tests and treatments and conducting subsequent patient and caregiver education, if needed.
Why do you need TCM as a staple in your care environment? Well, it’s because patients benefit from reinforcement, allowing them to stay on track and see lower rates of readmission. TCM also translates to high cost-savings. In a randomized clinical trial, after one year of being observed, per-patient cost savings on average totaled $4,485.
If you’re looking to get started, this white paper explores TCM mistakes to avoid to ensure you maximize the potential of your program, as well as a TCM execution checklist to stay on track!
November 2020: RPM Workflow Guide: 6 Steps to Starting an Effective Program

September 2020: Accelerating Health Care Cost Reduction Through Preventative Care And Telehealth
Chronic conditions that turn fatal are endemic in the United States. Among adults, 6 in 10 have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 have two or more. Just heart disease and stroke alone cost the health industry $199 billion per year.
Care management services, remote patient monitoring and preventative care services are all solutions to curb the effects of chronic disease among America’s varying patient populations.
In this quick two-page read, get an idea of how you can speed up your care cost reduction efforts through varying telehealth solutions.
August 2020: Understanding Obstacles of Dual-Eligible Beneficiaries For Better Care Management
Dual-eligible beneficiaries represent a special patient population who face immense challenges that constantly impact their health. They qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid, meaning disability and income level are already two massive hurdles stacked against them.
Understanding the obstacles they face sets providers in a position to provide care tailored to their needs and lifestyles. This white paper provides you with the information necessary to launch balanced care plans, providing a Challenges to Care Fact Sheet, as well as models of care you can use to spur positive change among your dual-eligible patients.
