Innovation at the heart of cardiovascular health

Innovation at the heart of cardiovascular health

In the ever-shifting terrain of healthcare, staying up-to-date on cutting-edge solutions is crucial, especially when leveraging technology to provide patient care and support. Heart disease management has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years, with innovations steering the course towards more personalized and patient-centered care. One prominent trend shaping this landscape is the emphasis on home-based support, bringing healthcare directly into the heart of patients' lives.

Home-Based Support: Bring Healthcare Home

Home-based support has become a game-changer, offering unparalleled comfort and convenience. At Custom Health, we seamlessly integrate medical care into the familiarity of one's home, enhancing patient satisfaction, improving medication adherence, and fostering engagement. We leverage technology to remote monitor and correlate medication adherence and vital signs, giving our clinicians real-time insights into the cardiovascular health of our patients. This proactive approach allows for early detection of changes, timely interventions, and the prevention of complications. Recognizing the unreliable nature of patient recall data as well as possible day-to-day changes in symptoms, we emphasize the importance of accurate and timely feedback. Providing patients access to their data enables them to showcase progress to care providers, facilitating transparency in assessing risk factors and making informed decisions for future care.

The Technological Leap: Transforming Heart Health Management

The union of technology and heart health management continues to yield promising results. From wearable devices that track daily activity to advanced medication management solutions, technology is a powerful ally in the quest for improved outcomes.

Custom Health is commitment to technological innovation. We start with advanced technology in the patient home for medication management, then layer in additional monitoring to better personalize and transform the care experience. Specializing in multi-med scenarios, we work with consumers, health plans and physician practices to provide clinical oversight and proactive care for those with complex health needs. Our closed-loop system allows for health outcome-centered pathways supported by digitally enabled pharmacy automation, personalized dose-level medication delivery in the last mile with validated 3rd party adherence rates of 98%, connected devices reporting on patient experience and engagement, and pharmacist-led clinical care, all contributing to the overall success of heart health management.
