Remote Patient Monitoring in New Rochelle

Reducing Hospital Readmission Rates in New Rochelle

Amelia Home Care addresses avoidable readmissions by blending live 24/7 Professional Remote Care Coordination (RCC) with the latest intuitive remote patient monitoring.

Our team provides timely interventions, bridges external care services, and addresses patient psychosocial needs. RCCs collect and share patient data with the healthcare team, a key pillar in preventing avoidable readmissions.

With thousands of patients, Amelia Home Care is seeing a reduction in readmission rates of 91 to 95 percent.

Remote Care Coordination in New Rochelle

Our Remote Care Coordinators (RCCs) provide face-to-face, video chat interactions with your patients to monitor and assist in adherence and reducing readmissions while improving clinical patient outcomes.

With the ability to visually record patient vitals, assess patient needs for medication refills, food, transportation to medical appointments, and social interactions, our coordinators develop personalized patient care with established protocols.

Available 24/7, RCCs cover the extended hours and weekends when staffing from Home Health is typically limited. Amelia Home Care patients thrive with more attention and interaction, and their satisfaction scores prove it!

Care Pathways for New Rochelle Clients

Amelia Home Care has over 95 Care Pathways currently available to our clients including combination pathways for patients with multiple co-morbidities.

These pathways include branch logic and RCC protocol for follow-up questions. Our RCCs are trained to identify and report issues with post-acute and post-surgical patients, including the identification of SIRS criteria, which may lead to sepsis.

In addition to pathways questions, vital signs, and video conferencing, we have educational videos, teach-back questions, reminders, and the ability to assist patients in obtaining appointments, video-conferencing with family members, and other members of the care team.

Psychosocial Needs and Socialization for New Rochelle Residents

Often, many of our patients are seniors between 70 to 95 years old, and many are lonely and isolated. The RCC’s responsibility is to engage in casual conversations, beyond the illness and discuss life, and joyful matters.

For patients who require more attention, often receive multiple video calls per day and are assigned to volunteers to check in with the patients.

The results are astonishing, leading to reduction of readmissions, happier patient satisfaction, and increased RPM utilization rate.

Amelia Home Care Health Platform

Based on the patient’s capability and comfort level utilizing their preferred communication device, Amelia Home Care provides a variety of platforms to ensure as many patients are enrolled in the program as possible.

For patients accustomed to utilizing their own personal smartphone or tablet (Apple or Android), an easy-to-download application is provided.

A telehealth kit, which consists of a tablet with built-in internet and wireless medical devices and is intuitive to operate, can be delivered to the patient’s home.

If both are not viable options, their assigned RCC can render phone calls to retrieve ongoing data collection so no patient is left out of the program.

Authorized physicians, nurses, nursing staff, and Home Health agencies will have access to patient data and telehealth communication with the patient based on their security access privileges.

Oftentimes, physicians and nurses find it more convenient to work with the assigned RCC.

Based on schedule or ad hoc calls, the RCC can engage the physician on a group video conference with the patient by sending a link to the physician’s email or phone.

Upon clicking the link, the physician will be able to join the secured video conference call with the patient.

About New Rochelle

New Rochelle is a city in Westchester County, New York, United States, in the southeastern portion of the state. In 2010, the city had a population of 77,062, making it the seventh-largest in the state of New York. Wikipedia

Historic sites

Overlooking Davids’ Island
  • Columbia Island – a small island (approx. 150 feet (46 m) square) situated between Davids’ Island and Pea Island. Up until 1940 it was known as Little Pea Island. CBS purchased it and built a concrete foundation to support a transmitter building topped by a 410-foot (120 m) tall antenna tower for WCBS-AM.[22][23] The transmitter remained in operation until the 1960s, when the station was moved to nearby High Island.
  • Execution Rocks Lighthouse – centered in the middle of Long Island Sound, just south of Davids’ Island. The structure was built in 1849 and includes a 55-foot (17 m) tall tower and the ‘keeper’s house’. It is rumored that the lighthouse’s site got its name before the American Revolutionary War when British colonial authorities executed people by chaining them to the rocks at low tide and allowing the rising water to drown them. In reality, the name was chosen to reflect the historically dangerous shipping area created by the rocks exposure during low tides.
  • Huckleberry Island – a 10-acre (40,000 m2) island owned by the Huckleberry Indians, Inc., a club within the New York Athletic Club. The island is an important nesting site for waterbirds such as egrets and night herons.
  • Leland Castle – a 19th-century Gothic Revival castle built as the summer residence of Simeon Leland, a wealthy New York City hotel entrepreneur. It has since been acquired by the College of New Rochelle and is used as an art gallery available to the public.
  • St. John’s Wilmot Church – a historic Episcopal parish located in the northern end of the City at the intersection of North Avenue and Wilmot Road, formerly referred to as “Cooper’s Corner“.
  • Thomas Paine Historical Site – a historical nexus within the city, the site comprises: the country home of the American pamphleteer and Revolutionary War hero Thomas Paine, his burial site, monument, and a museum. Paine’s Cottage was built in 1793 and is a National Historic Landmark. The Thomas Paine Memorial Building, built in 1925, houses the library and museum collection of the Thomas Paine National Historical Association. Also on the site is the Brewster Schoolhouse, one of the oldest structural relics in Westchester County.
  • Trinity-St. Paul’s Episcopal Church – added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. It is located at the northwest corner of Huguenot Street (also known as the Boston Post Road) and Division Street. This church represents the body of the majority group of New Rochelle’s founding Huguenot French Calvinistic congregation that conformed to the liturgy of the established Church of England in June 1709. King George III gave Trinity its first charter in 1762. After the Revolutionary War, Trinity became a parish of the Protestant Episcopal Church of America


The City has a collection of parklands and nature preserves, with 102.5 acres (0.415 km2) of inland waters, 231.51 acres (0.9369 km2) of public park lands and 168 acres (0.68 km2) of park lets.

  • Glen Island – In 1879, John H. Starin, a former US Congressman and New York transportation king, bought five islands which he named ‘Glen Island’ and created perhaps the first theme park open to the public. His 12 steamboats transported millions of New York residents and others to the attractions which included a zoo, a natural history museum, a railway, a German beer garden (around the castle-like structure which still stands today), a bathing beach, and a Chinese pagoda. Today the park is a 105-acre (0.42 km2) island property connected to the mainland by a drawbridge built in the 1920s. One of the main features of the park is its pristine, crescent shaped beach offering access to Long Island Sound.
  • Five Islands Park is a series of islands connected by small footbridges and pathways, offers playground, sports, hiking and camping facilities for all residents to enjoy.
  • Hudson Park encompasses 13 acres (0.053 km2) along the city’s harbor front and includes a beach for residents, the city boathouse, greenhouses, the shore station of the United States Coast Guard and several yacht and rowing clubs. The park is traditionally accepted as the original landing place of the Huguenot settlers. A granite boulder with bronze tablets commemorates the event.
  • Davids’ Island, a 78-acre (320,000 m2) island of the coast of the city, is being transformed from a former American military base (Fort Slocum) into a park and environmental preserve. Beginning just after the Civil War, the island was a military base used to protect New York Harbors, during World War I it served as an army recruitment station and up until 1967, it maintained various ‘Cold War’ facilities. Today it is home to a variety of plants, birds, and animals. These include the endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle, and rare birds such as osprey and least terns. Davids Island also supports valuable wetlands, rare rocky intertidal areas, and sandy beaches. The waters surrounding the Island are home to Winter Flounder, Atlantic Herring, and Atlantic Silversides.
  • Ward Acres, located in the North End, is a combination of untouched forest, wild lawns and meadows, acres of hiking, exercise trails and historic horse stables/cemeteries. In 2007, The Westchester County Department of Conservation produced a Natural Resource Management Plan in order to identify and protect the natural resource needs of the park. It encompasses 62 acres (250,000 m2), with the forests divided into four main sections, each distinct in both general characteristics and species presence. It is formed by a portion of a former private state that contained a horse farm, and by an old railroad right of way. It includes a 3-acre (12,000 m2) fenced-in dog run, and it is the only park in the City in which residents can walk a dog without a leash.[30]
  • The Leatherstocking Trail is a 2-mile (3.2 km) long, inter-municipal hiking trail situated between New Rochelle and Mamaroneck, eventually linking into Saxon Woods County Park. It is part of a larger “Colonial Greenway Trail” in which it connects to Twin Lakes/Nature Study and Saxon Woods parks.[31]
  • Sheldrake Lake which formerly served as a reservoir supplying the areas drinking water, is now a 60 acres (0.24 km2) park and nature conservancy promoting an increased understanding of the local ecology.
  • Twin Lakes Park, combined with the adjacent Nature Study Woods comprise 220 acres (0.89 km2) of woods, marsh, lakes, ponds and some fields along the Hutchinson River in New Rochelle’s Northend. There are many foot trails weaving through woods, marshlands, fields and around two large lakes (formerly reservoirs).[32]

19th and 20th centuries

Through the 18th century, New Rochelle had remained a modest village that retained an abundance of agricultural land. During the 19th century, however, New York City was a destination from the mid-century on by waves of immigration, principally from Ireland and Germany. More established American families left New York City and moved into this area. Although the original Huguenot population was rapidly shrinking in relative size, through ownership of land, businesses, banks, and small manufactures, they retained a predominant hold on the political and social life of the town.

The 1820 Census showed 150 African-Americans residing in New Rochelle, six of whom were still slaves. The state abolished slavery by degrees: children of slave mothers were born free, and all slaves were freed by 1827.

In 1857 the Village of New Rochelle was established within the borders of the Town of New Rochelle. A group of volunteers created the first fire service in 1861. In 1899, a bill creating the New Rochelle City Charter was signed by Governor Theodore Roosevelt. It was through this bill that the Village and Town of New Rochelle were joined into one municipality. In 1899, Michael J. Dillon narrowly defeated Hugh A. Harmer to become New Rochelle’s first mayor. The recently established city charter designated a board of aldermen as the legislative unit with two members to be elected from each of four wards and 10 elected from the city at-large.[10]

By 1900, New Rochelle had a population of 14,720. Throughout the city, farms, estates, and wooded homesteads were bought up by realty and development companies.[11] Planned residential neighborhoods such as Rochelle Park, one of the first planned communities in the country, soon spread across the city, earning New Rochelle the sobriquet “City of Homes”.[12] In 1909, Edwin Thanhouser established Thanhouser Film Corporation. Thanhouser’s Million Dollar Mystery was one of the first serial motion pictures.[13] In 1923, New Rochelle resident Anna Jones became the first African-American woman to be admitted to the New York State Bar.[14]

Poet and resident James J. Montague captured the image of New Rochelle at the time in his 1926 poem “Queen City of the Sound”.[15]

In 1930, New Rochelle recorded a population of 54,000, up from 36,213 only ten years earlier. During the 1930s, New Rochelle was the wealthiest city per capita in New York state and the third wealthiest in the country.[16]

By the end of the century, the Metro North railroad station was rebuilt along with a $190 million entertainment complex, nicknamed New Roc City, which features a 19-screen movie theater, an IMAX theater, an indoor ice-hockey arena, mini-golf, go karts, an arcade, restaurants, a hotel, loft-apartments and a mega supermarket. The complex was built on the site of the former New Rochelle Mall, which had opened in 1968.[17]
