In 2003, it launched a systemwide program using an Internet-linked Health Buddy data communications device connected to the VA's VistA EHR, said Dr. Adam Darkins, the VA's chief consultant for telehealth services.
In 2008, Darkins published a study of 17,000 of the VA's early home-monitoring program participants. It showed a 25% reduction for them in hospital bed days and a 19% reduction in admissions, with an 86% mean patient-satisfaction score. Today the program operates with a ratio of one care coordinator, typically a nurse or social worker, for 150 monitored veterans.
Darkins attributed the effectiveness of the VA program to the strong tie-in to a robust EHR system; algorithms to help identify patients who are faltering; messaging and rapid response to those alerts; consistent implementation of the programs at VA centers across the country; and economies of scale from operating a large healthcare system.
