Remote Patient Monitoring in Scarsdale

Reducing Hospital Readmission Rates in Scarsdale

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 Scarsdale

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 Scarsdale 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 Scarsdale 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 Scarsdale

Scarsdale is a town and village in Westchester County, New York, United States. The Town of Scarsdale is coextensive with the Village of Scarsdale, but the community has opted to operate solely with a village government, one of several villages in the state that have a similar governmental situation. Wikipedia

1945–present

Scarsdale is a town and village in Westchester County, New YorkUnited States. The Town of Scarsdale is coextensive with the Village of Scarsdale, but the community has opted to operate solely with a village government, one of several villages in the state that have a similar governmental situation.[3] As of the 2010 census, Scarsdale’s population was 17,166.[4]

Scarsdale became the subject of national controversy in the 1950s when a “Committee of Ten” led by Otto Dohrenwend alleged “Communist infiltration” in the public schools.[9] A thorough investigation by the town rejected these claims. This same group, known as the Scarsdale Citizens Committee, sued to prevent a benefit for the Freedom Riders from taking place at the public high school in 1963 because some of the performers (Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Pete Seeger) were allegedly “communist sympathizers and subversives.”[10] Another controversy enveloped the town in 1961, when the Scarsdale Golf Club, headed by Charles S. McCallister, refused to allow a young man who had converted from Judaism into the Episcopal Church, Michael Cunningham Hernstadt, to escort a young woman, Pamela Nottage, to her debut at the club. At the time, it was the club’s policy to prohibit Jews from the premises.[11] In response, the Rev. George French Kempsell of the Church of Saint James the Less announced that he would ban any supporters of the club’s decision from receiving Holy Communion.[11] The event marked a turning point toward the decline of anti-Semitism in the town.[11] Scarsdale’s public library, which had been housed in historic Wayside Cottage since 1928, moved to its present structure on the White Plains Post Road in 1951.[12] The driving force behind the library was New York City publisher S. Spencer Scott, who raised $100,000 for the project after the village rejected a bond issue to fund the building in 1938. The new library opened with 27,000 books and Sylvia C. Hilton serving as the first librarian.[12] The last of the town’s five elementary schools, Heathcote School, opened in September 1953. The $1,000,000 architectural landmark was designed by Perkins & Will of Chicago. Walter B. Cocking, the president of the New York State Committee for the Public Schools, delivered the dedication address.[13] In 1967, U.S. Secretary of State and former longtime resident Dean Rusk returned to Scarsdale at the height of the Vietnam War to receive the town’s Man of the Year Award and was greeted with a silent protest.[14] Scarsdale was the subject of a landmark United States Supreme Court decision, ACLU v. Scarsdale (1985), that established the so-called “reindeer rule” regarding public nativity scenes and upheld the right of local religious groups to place crèches on public property. Scarsdale was involved in another United States Supreme Court case in 1985, Board of Trustees of Scarsdale v. McCreary, concerning the display of privately sponsored nativity scenes on public property. The Caleb Hyatt House, Scarsdale Railroad Station, Scarsdale Woman’s Club, United States Post Office, and Wayside Cottage are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[15]pper Manhattan.
Here are vital programs from Department of Senior Programs and Services (DSPS) for the elderly or disabled who need some help, but wish to remain in their homes and communities in comfort and safety. Family members who are caring for a parent, spouse or other relative will find support services in our Caregiver Corner. The Care Circles of Westchester program is the newest initiative under the big Livable Communities umbrella. The Livable Communities Caregiver Coaching program is a trail-blazing initiative that helps family caregivers make informed decisions to better care for their older or disabled loved ones. The New York State Insurance Department provides information about long-term care insurance as well as other items of interest to seniors, such as Medicare, Medicaid and other topics. The New York Connects help line is a service where callers can make one, toll-free phone call for information about long-term care for seniors and for adults and children who are disabled. The elderly are particularly vulnerable to physical, emotional and financial abuse. If you suspect elder abuse, read the information here to see how to recognize it and learn what can be done about it. Caregivers, family and friends frequently don’t know where to turn when they are worried about the safety of an older driver. Check our Older Driver Family Assistance Program to learn your options. Our valuable Senior Citizen Guide to Mental Health Services helps families obtain information on mental health programs and services in Westchester County. Caregivers who live in their homes with a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia usually worry that that person will wander away and get lost.  If that happens Project Lifesaver is a free program that uses radio-frequency technology to find their loved ones quickly and return them safely home.
