Cadence Patient Stories: Remote patient monitoring is improving my life
In a new video, 80-year-old patient David details how Cadence's remote care program has helped him to regulate his medicines, improve his health, and live a better life. The video is part of a new series of Patient Stories released by Cadence that highlight the positive impact the company is having on patients' lives.
David, who lives in Morganton, North Carolina, is battling heart failure and enrolled in Cadence as part of the company's partnership with LifePoint Health.
Cadence is working with hospital systems like LifePoint Health to deliver remote care to patients across the United States, including those living in rural areas who have been unable to easily access quality healthcare.
"Cadence is the best thing that's ever happened to me," David said in the video. "For me and also my family, it really has helped me out."
Cadence utilizes devices to continuously monitor patients with heart failure, as well as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). David describes his daily care regimen, which includes using a set of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) devices each morning, such as a scale and blood pressure monitor. Those readings get automatically uploaded to Cadence's software platform and are then analyzed by a Cadence clinician.
By helping to monitor patients' health on an ongoing basis, Cadence is serving as both a partner as well as an extension of hospital systems. The company is bringing high quality, personalized, and data-driven care outside the four walls of the hospital and into the home, thereby pioneering a new model of care combining ongoing patient monitoring, virtual care, as well as in-person care for patients.
Cadence has already made a positive impact on patients' lives, including people like David. "You want to get stronger mentally. You want to get stronger physically," David said. "If you've got someone like Cadence checking on you, it helps tremendously."
