Leveraging Remote Patient Monitoring to Manage Chronic Disease

Mississippi understands the challenges and costs of a patient population with chronic diseases. The University of Mississippi Medical Center’s (UMMC) Center for Telehealth has a mission to bridge the gaps in the healthcare delivery system in order to improve the health of all Mississippians. Telehealth is able to connect rural residents to the specialists at the larger tertiary centers in the state, thus increasing access.  In August 2014, the UMMC Center for Telehealth launched The Mississippi Diabetes Telehealth Network to pilot an advanced healthcare model on patients with uncontrolled diabetes living in the Mississippi Delta.  The model employs evidenced based practice, multidisciplinary teams, and individualized nursing interaction in an effort to empower patients to better manage their diabetes. Our program focuses on decreasing health disparities; managing chronic diseases; reducing emergency room visits, hospital admissions and readmissions; and improving health quality while reducing the overall cost of care.

Topics will include:
-        Clinical outcomes from pilot and how it paved the way for reimbursement in Mississippi
-        Cost effective care model for chronic disease management for patients living in underserved areas.
-        The need for collaborative approach to managing chronic disease
