Increase patient engagement, reduce readmissions after discharge

The eTrAC ambulatory telehealth program enables clinicians and patients to stay closely connected during the transition to ambulatory care for chronic disease management. Patients receive a high level of care and minimize their chances of being readmitted to the hospital. In addition, the eTrAC program facilitates healthcare communication and fosters effective caregiver-patient relationships.

Program features and services

 

The eTrAC program combines clinical software for effective chronic care management with in-home monitoring devices. Clinicians can monitor patients’ health remotely, identify symptoms and intervene early.

Behavioral science foundation¹

 

Extensive research on patient lifestyle and communication habits; and input from behavioral scientists on patient motivations and health behaviors enable are built into the eTRAC program, enabling personalized subject-matter and effective, confidence-boosting self-care strategies.

Clinical support

 

The eTrAC program includes patient selection criteria definition; patient stratification tools, including surveys on medication compliance, nutrition and depression; and reporting for program administrators and physicians.

Patient education

 

Audiovisual patient education programs leverage video and tablet technology to increase health literacy for patient populations. The use of less technical language combined with an interactive approach helps improve patient knowledge, self-care abilities and confidence; which can lead to behavioral changes that make a difference in health and quality of life.

Technology-powered communication

 

Using two-way live video, clinicians can connect with and assess patients more accurately. This face-to-face interaction is designed to foster care plan compliance and help enhance diagnosis by providing immediate access to patient feedback. In addition, two-way video is designed to build patient self-care skill.

Training

 

The eTrAC program includes comprehensive training and support resources, including online CEU courses; clinical staff education and training on telehealth devices, software and protocols; patient education; and a Telehealth Certification Program to credential your clinical staff.
