The Importance of Leveraging Technology in Heart Health Management

In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, technology stands as a powerful ally, particularly in the realm of heart health. For those navigating heart-related conditions, the integration of technology can be a game-changer, offering a holistic approach to management and prevention.

One of the key aspects where technology shines is in its ability to empower individuals with tools for proactive health management. From real-time monitoring to personalized medication management, the possibilities are vast, providing patients with greater control over their heart health journey.

In-Home Monitoring: A Beacon of Support for Patients with Cardiovascular Disease

When prioritizing heart health, regular and continuous monitoring is paramount. At Custom Health, we understand the significance of remote patient monitoring in supporting patients with heart health management. By bringing the monitoring process directly to the patient's doorstep, we bridge the gap between healthcare facilities and the comfort of one's home.

Our monitored in-home technologies allow for the seamless collection of vital data, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and other relevant patient-specific metrics. This real-time information allows us to triage to healthcare providers not only supporting them in making informed decisions but also empowering patients to actively participate in their care journey.

Medication Management Solutions: Precision in Medication Administration

Adherence to medication is a cornerstone of effective heart health management. Recognizing this, Custom Health offers cutting-edge medication management solutions that go beyond traditional pill dispensers. Our dispensing devices are equipped with advanced technology, ensuring the right medication is taken at the right time.

These devices not only simplify the medication regimen but also contribute to higher adherence rates. Through our technology, we promote a proactive and consistent approach to medication management, minimizing the risk of missed doses and optimizing the therapeutic benefits of prescribed medications.

The Custom Health Difference: Data That Speaks Volumes

Our commitment to leveraging technology for heart health is not just theoretical – the data speaks for itself. In our patient population, we've witnessed remarkable improvements in heart health outcomes through the integration of our technologies. Our patients see a 10% average decrease in systolic BP after just three months of using our technology, in addition to a 11% decrease in hospital and urgent care visits after 6 months.

Custom Health's in-home monitoring solutions have resulted in early detection of changes in vital signs, allowing for timely interventions.

Additionally, our medication management solutions have led to a staggering 98% medication adherence (JMIR) rate among patients, showcasing the positive impact of technology on maintaining a consistent and effective medication routine.

A Heartfelt Embrace of Technology

As a pharmacist at Custom Health, I've witnessed firsthand the transformative impact technology can have on heart health management. The marriage of in-home monitoring and advanced medication management solutions has ushered in a new era of proactive, patient-centric care.

By embracing these technological innovations, individuals facing heart-related challenges can embark on a journey towards improved outcomes and a heart that beats stronger and healthier. At Custom Health, we are not just pioneers in technology; we are advocates for a heart-healthy future powered by innovation.
