What We Offer

Our Solution

The ActiCare Health Monitoring Program enables forward-thinking transplant and VAD centers to reduce costs, length of stay, and hospital readmissions, while optimizing care quality and minimizing administrative hurdles for care coordinators. Our pre-operative transplant program is designed to improve patient readiness and timeliness for surgery, which can help to minimize intake and pre-operative delays, lower incidence of surgical complications, and reduce the time spent in-hospital. Our post-discharge programs for transplants and VAD have been developed to foster timely recognition of emerging complications, which can improve patient morbidity, mortality, and other long-term outcomes. By actively monitoring patients, helping them adhere to discharge instructions, and giving transplant teams better visibility into each patient’s current health status, we increase the likelihood of a successful, rapid recovery.

Program Features

The ActiCare Health Monitoring Suite is built around a series of highly personalized, virtual health check-ins and learning modules that are designed to identify key areas of risk and equip patients with the tools and resources they need to minimize these risks.
