Tuesday, May 30, 2023
Bayshore HealthCare (Bayshore) has unveiled Vantage, an innovative remote patient monitoring (RPM) program aimed at improving patient outcomes, enhancing healthcare delivery, and facilitating communication among healthcare providers.
Developed in collaboration with Microsoft and leveraging the power of Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, Vantage is a cloud-based solution that enables healthcare providers to remotely monitor patients' health, intervene in a timely manner, and reduce avoidable hospital readmissions and emergency department visits. The Vantage platform is built on the HL7 FHIR data model, ensuring seamless interoperability with existing healthcare infrastructure. Vantage goes beyond being just an RPM software solution. Bayshore's dedicated nurses closely monitor patients' progress, engage with caregivers and the circle of care, and respond promptly to any changes in a patient's condition.
"With Vantage, we are addressing some of the most pressing challenges in healthcare, including staffing shortages, patient accessibility, and the cost of care delivery. Our remote patient monitoring solution is a crucial step forward in transforming healthcare for the better," said Maureen Charlebois, Chief Nursing & Clinical Officer at Bayshore HealthCare.
The Vantage platform offers a wide range of features and benefits for patients, caregivers, hospitals, as well as home and community care providers. These include streamlined remote and in-person patient onboarding, an easy-to-use mobile app and medical devices, a single point of contact for clinical and technical support, the ability for caregivers to monitor their loved ones' progress, electronic referral and patient progress monitoring, customizable care plans and goals, and seamless integration with existing healthcare systems.
"Vantage is a game-changer for the healthcare industry. By empowering patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers with real-time health data and tools, we are making it easier for them to collaborate, make informed decisions, and achieve better patient outcomes," said Dheeraj Paul, Director of Business Transformation at Bayshore HealthCare.
According to Peter Jones, Healthcare Industry Lead at Microsoft Canada, "Vantage is at the forefront of healthcare innovation, making significant contributions to transforming healthcare delivery in Canada. We take pride in our collaboration with Bayshore HealthCare and in bringing Vantage to providers across the country. Together, we are empowering healthcare teams with innovative tools to improve patient outcomes and drive better healthcare experiences."
Vantage leverages adaptable technology found in the Bayshore Digital Experience Platform, which facilitates the evolution of a suite of digital home healthcare programs and services to support individuals living with chronic diseases. This platform also enables Bayshore HealthCare to partner with healthcare organizations across Canada on innovative digital initiatives by supporting ease of integration.
