The numbers from Advanced TeleHealth Solutions shows significant reductions in emergency room visits and re-hospitalizations, particularly for high-dollar patients.
Dr. Roy W. Holand
I don’t go to the hospital now because I’m able to check my vitals daily and I’m not afraid. I could barely function before, and now I feel safe. The staff is never in a hurry, never too busy for me. It’s a comfort to know that they are watching out for me. It’s like having a whole bunch of friends around all the time.

Telemonitoring has been very helpful. In the past, anytime a patient had a problem with blood pressure or a medicine had to be changed, it was very difficult to monitor, and many times we had to bring the patient back to the clinic or we had a nurse go check their blood pressure. Since telemonitoring, it’s really been very convenient, especially for the patients.
Dr. Ovais Zubair
By carefully monitoring the patient several times a day, Advanced TeleHealth Solutions could tell when it was time to make a home visit and administer care. As a result, the patient was much more comfortable and the home visits saved a trip to the hospital. With the budget crisis in the state of Missouri involving Medicaid state management, telemonitoring is such an inexpensive alternative to multiple trips to the emergency room or doctor’s office.
