PALM BEACH, FL – November 30, 2021—CareSimple®, the platform simplifying remote patient monitoring (RPM) for virtually all patients, has been awarded a group purchasing agreement with Premier, a leading healthcare improvement company. Effective since November 1st, the new deal allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by the organizations for CareSimple’s array of RPM solutions and devices which include blood pressure (BP) monitors, pulse oximeters, and glucometers.

With integrated data and analytics, collaboratives, supply chain solutions, and advisory and other services, the group purchasing organization enables better care and outcomes at a lower cost. Under the terms of this new relationship, CareSimple will now be available to Premier members in the RPM category which includes suppliers of technology that enables the remote monitoring of patients in a clinical setting or at the home which may increase access to care and decrease healthcare delivery costs.
“Better care and outcomes at a lower cost is precisely what RPM is all about, and CareSimple delivers it with scale through a relentless focus on simplicity, quality, and security. We’re proud to commence this group purchasing relationship with Premier which gives us the strategic opportunity to empower the EHRs of Premier’s extensive network of hospital and provider members with an RPM engine that seamlessly blends software, services, and devices to make remote monitoring simple for patients and care managers alike,” said Michel Nadeau, CEO of CareSimple. “We look forward to collaborating as partners with Premier and its members to help millions of patients with chronic conditions like hypertension, heart failure, diabetes, and COPD gain control while reducing the overall cost of healthcare.”
CareSimple was founded to make remote care simple. While “remote” entails “digital,” digital must never get in the way of universal care. That’s why CareSimple is an RPM solution for all patients, not just tech-savvy users. The company eliminates the technical burdens commonly found with traditional remote care models making RPM truly “senior-friendly” with or without smartphones. As a comprehensive virtual care offering, the company’s solution extends monitoring beyond traditional home health applications to highly effective population health management programs that are made for patients of any age, condition, and socioeconomic status.
Central to the CareSimple offering is its ability to drive clinical efficiencies to a higher level, providing the logistics of delivering devices to the patient’s home, highly efficient clinical software, 4G/5G medical devices, EHR interoperability with 80+ EHRs including the Epic App Orchard, and an optional patient app that complies with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to involve a wide range of patients with disabilities.
