New video helps patients understand the benefits and workings of sophisticated biometric monitoring system that has proven to reduce rates of complications and cut health-care costs, myNEXUS reports
Brentwood, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2014 -- myNEXUS, Inc., announced the release of a video that introduces and explains the company's powerful telehealth monitoring system. Available at the myNEXUS home page, the video is aimed at individuals and their loved ones and seeks to demystify the technology of telehealth and provide insight into its benefits. The myNEXUS telemonitoring system has been proven to improve health outcomes and bring down healthcare costs for individuals with a variety of chronic conditions.
"Technology is a wonderful thing, but it can also be confusing," myNEXUS representative McArthur VanOsdale, President and CEO said, "Our new video will be an important asset as we seek to educate the public about the incredible power and benefits of our telehealth approach." Readmission to hospitals after major health events is a significant contributor to overall health care costs, and many of these episodes endanger patients unnecessarily. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, for example, nearly twenty percent of those who suffer acute myocardial infarctions will be forced to return to the hospital within thirty days of being released, putting them in further danger and driving up health care costs significantly.
The myNEXUS telehealth system has been proven to substantially reduce the rates of complication and readmissions for people with a variety of health problems, particularly chronic ones such as diabetes, COPD, congestive heart failure and hypertension. The system centers around advanced, but easy to use home-based biometric monitoring equipment that regularly measures key health indicators and, using its own cellular data connection, uploads the information automatically to myNEXUS, where highly trained specialists study these data points with the aid of powerful analytic tools.
This approach ensures that any negative developments are quickly identified, after which proactive clinical intervention takes place. In many cases, relatively simple remediation specified by myNEXUS experts, such as dietary modification or keeping up with medications better, will get individuals back on track, preventing small problems from becoming bigger ones. If these efforts should prove insufficient, individuals still benefit from early detection and the ability of myNEXUS to engage other health care providers or the individual's physician, in solving the problem.
Individuals using myNEXUS receive better-managed, more strategic and productive health care, instead of a recovery or chronic condition management process punctuated by sudden ambulance rides and emergency room visits. The myNEXUS telehealth system has been shown to reduce rates of hospital readmission by up to 80% for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure, diabetes, and other common conditions, leading to healthier patients whose care costs less.
The proven results and impressive potential of the myNEXUS system recently attracted attention from MTS Health Investors, one of the nation's leading healthcare-focused private equity firms. A substantial investment from that partner has positioned myNEXUS, Inc., to grow further and meet swelling demand for the company's industry-leading product.
The just-announced video that explains the myNEXUS telehealth system will therefore be an important asset as more patients and health care providers come to take advantage of the system's many benefits. The video, available at the myNEXUS website and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=es48rLV9apM, provides an accessible, informative introduction to the system that will help viewers understand how it works and how it can benefit others.
