Residents in Brooklyn, New York, have been given access to round-the-clock personalisd healthcare using wearable devices

Made possible by a partnership between One Brooklyn Health, Cain Health and CyberMed Health, patients in the One Brooklyn Health system will now have access to around-the-clock care with wearable devices that monitor vitals from their homes.

“The technology exists now to observe and record health vitals in real time, alerting medical professionals immediately to any abnormalities or concerns,” said Scott Cain, CEO of Cain Health. “This medical grade equipment not only can improve health outcomes, but it can also reduce emergency room activity and hospital readmissions, saving busy and stretched-thin hospitals and health systems like One Brooklyn Health much needed resources.”

Launched last year, remote patient monitoring is available at no out-of-pocket cost to patients.

“We strive to provide the best care to our patients,” said Sandra Scott, interim CEO of One Brooklyn Health. “Allowing us to continue the quality of care and the connection to our talented team of medical professionals after patients leave the hospital is incredible. It is the future, and we are fortunate to be able to adopt this technology advancement for our community.”

Cain Health has worked with hospital systems across the USA to incorporate remote patient monitoring, saving them millions of dollars in hospital readmissions and unnecessary ER visits.

“In busy metropolitan cities, like Brooklyn, remote patient monitoring eases the burden on both the patient and the healthcare providers,” said Scott. “It not only helps improve the quality of care, but it also gives the patient peace of mind without needing to venture from their home.”

Established in 2016, One Brooklyn Health (onebrooklynhealth.org) aims to enhance and preserve healthcare services in central and east Brooklyn. It is comprised of Interfaith Medical Center, Brookdale Hospital Medical Center and Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center.

Cain Health (www.cainhealth.com) was formed in 1999 by Scott Cain to provide revenue recovery and management services to hospitals and physicians across the USA.
