When a patient is discharged from the hospital, ER, or Urgent Care, Current Health sends the discharged patient an at-home kit. Current Health will also arrange for durable medical equipment (DME) including wheelchairs, hospital beds, or oxygen supplies, and can supply meal delivery or at-home lab draws. They are that single point of contact the patient can rely on for everything they need while at-home.
Current Health monitors RPM devices such as a pulse oximeter and blood pressure device and will immediately contact the patient and healthcare team if something changes, like a drop in blood oxygen levels. Current Health’s platform can then be used for a member of the healthcare team to immediately drop in by video or text to assess the situation. Current Health can arrange a virtual visit with a physician later that day and integrate all their data into the provider’s EMR.
Current Health has also partnered with many other companies to deliver these in-home services, including ScriptDrop, a company that delivers prescription medications to all 50 states. According to Current Health, the hospital-at-home can result in 70% less readmissions, 35% decrease in length of stay, and 32% decrease in costs. Current Health also works with pharmaceutical companies to administer at-home clinical trials.
