Metabolic Syndrome Management Programs

Metabolic syndrome management programs have everyone talking because of the widespread nature of this relatively new health condition. Metabolic syndrome is a combination of medical disorders that, when occurring together, increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Advanced TeleHealth Solutions’ metabolic syndrome management programs support patients with home diagnostics for monitoring of their disease, but, more important, management, prevention, and lifestyle changes advised by our team of medical professionals. Our program has seen significant improvement for patient populations and includes:

  • 47 million Americans could benefit from metabolic syndrome management programs.An ehealth device in the home
  • Daily monitoring of vital signs
  • Individualized coaching
  • Timely education
  • Medication compliance
  • A specialized clinical team trained in chronic disease management

Who Is at Risk?

The risks of developing metabolic syndrome also increase with age. Those most at risk have central obesity with any two of the following:

  • Elevated triglycerides > 150 mg/dl
  • Elevated b/p > 130/85
  • Reduced HDL cholesterol < 40 mg/dl
  • Elevated fasting blood glucose > 100

One of the most effective ways of managing metabolic syndrome is through proactive ehealth metabolic syndrome management programs. Telemonitoring can support the treatment of both the individual diseases and the overall condition. Through education, coaching, and medical monitoring, Advanced TeleHealth Solutions can work with employees, patients, and the at-risk population to manage and prevent health issues related to metabolic syndrome.

Advanced TeleHealth Solutions’ metabolic syndrome management programs support patients with home diagnostics for monitoring of their disease, while also offering timely advice and counsel to patients suffering from this disease in an effort to promote lifestyle changes that will help prevent healthcare problems later on.

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.
