Penn Care at Home piloted their telehealth program with HRS in 2011 to actively engage heart failure patients in their self-symptom management upon discharge from the hospital. Patients selected for the telehealth and RPM program utilized a 4G tablet as well as biometric monitoring devices to track and record their vital signs daily. Via the tablet, patients received medication reminders and access to symptom surveys and educational videos. All patient data was monitored by Penn Care at Home's clinical team.
