  • Remote vitals monitoring
  • Easy to understand post-discharge instructions, including daily instructions and medication information
  • Communication platform with Care Coach
  • Weekly milestones tied to personal recovery goals
  • RN Interventions
  • RN Interventions in case of non-compliance or abnormal vital signs


The system includes mobile and web interfaces for patients, clinicians and caregivers, as well as integrations for monitoring devices, backed by a HIPAA-compliant cloud infrastructure.
