"It’s not every day that a provider can say it has reduced readmission rates by 50% on its sub-acute unit. But Golden Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Kingston, NY, did just that. And in doing so, it paved the way to Gold in the Quality category in the McKnight’s Technology Awards. The provider went live with its TeliStat™ Restorative Care Unit with 25 beds at the end of 2015. Partnering with TellStat allowed Golden Hill to focus on telemonitoring and creating rehab in a more home-like setting. Each patient admitted to the unit has a portable Wi-Fi cellular cardiac monitor which registers real-time data 24 hours a day. “We were really able to create a sub-acute unit that was very effective and prevent readmissions,” said Edward Farbenblum, executive vice president of VestraCare. Before starting with TellStat he says the readmission rate was around 20%, and is now down to 4.6% in the last audit for the most complex patients in the building".
