The MetroHealth System, a nationally recognized public health care system located in Cleveland, Ohio, and CareSimple, a Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solution designed, developed, and operated by Tactio Health Group, today announced a strategic remote patient monitoring (RPM) partnership. As part of the strategic integration partnership, the CareSimple RPM solution will integrate with the hospital’s Epic EHR platform for near real-time access to patient health data in support of virtual care interventions.

Red Carpet Care Remote Patient Monitoring Program

Under the terms of the agreement, the CareSimple solution will empower the health system’s Red Carpet Care Program, offered by the Population Health Innovation Institute, with patient-friendly RPM solutions. These tools will help improve health outcomes for Northeast Ohio’s high-risk senior and chronically ill populations.

The MetroHealth System Red Carpet Care program offers an extension of their care team and primarily focuses on chronically ill and at-risk senior patients. The initiative works in parallel with primary care to proactively and virtually manage chronic conditions in partnership with multiple ambulatory settings through individualized care plans. The healthcare organization has already achieved demonstrable successes with the Red Carpet Care program, with over 400 patients reducing emergency department visits by 17% and inpatient utilization decreasing by 13%.
