Keystone Technologies Publishes Guide to Telehealth and mHealth

Senior Care IT Solutions Leader's New E-Book Describes How Technology to Keep Residents Connected Can Also Improve Care

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - March 15, 2016) - Keystone Technologies, a leading force in health IT and senior care technology solutions, announced today that it is publishing a guide for senior care executives looking upgrade their technology in order to improve care. The e-book, Telehealth, mHealth, and Beyond: Improving Quality of Care and Quality of Life by Keeping Seniors Connected, is available for free download at http://www.keystone-technologies.com/telehealth-mhealth-and-beyond-guide.

Reimbursement rules and other federal requirements have removed the personal touch from healthcare delivery. Even in the senior care setting, time and regulations constrain physicians and caregivers. Yet, their involvement is critical in preventing hospital readmissions, maintaining the health of seniors with chronic conditions, and keeping more seniors independent and healthy. Keystone Technologies' new guide explores how modern technology is bringing the personal touch back into senior care. Among the e-book's features:

  • Five areas of telehealth that are improving the level of senior care providers can offer
  • A definition of mHealth (mobile health), and the importance of apps toward its success
  • A history of telehealth and mHealth
  • The benefits of telehealth and mHealth to senior care communities
  • Four factors that must be considered when implementing telehealth at senior care communities

"Senior living executives who want to meet the challenging goals of increasing the level of resident satisfaction, increasing resident retention, and keeping residents safer and healthier -- all while saving money -- will want to strongly consider implementing telehealth and mHealth initiatives," says Aaron Jackson, Vice President of Solutions Architecture at Keystone Technologies. "This strategy is one of the best ways to improve the quality of care, save costs, increase efficiency of care, and boost resident satisfaction. Our new e-book offers detailed guidance to senior care communities looking to upgrade their technology that, ultimately, benefits their residents."
