ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (November 8, 2019)—Synzi, a virtual care company, has announced that Aspire Home Health and Hospice (Aspire), a home health and hospice provider in Salt Lake City, is using Synzi’s virtual care communication platform to better care for and engage their patient population throughout the Salt Lake, Davis and Weber counties.
Aspire offers a wide range of nursing and therapy services designed to help patients reach their optimum level of health and was interested in using technology to better care for the diabetic patient population in a unique and impactful way.
Synzi’s virtual care platform was selected for its comprehensive HIPAA-compliant video, email, text and secure messaging capabilities. As a result, Aspire has been able to effectively engage diabetic patients while efficiently addressing the complex needs of this patient population.
“Aspire embraces technologies which support our goal of providing our patients with the best in-home health care and therapy services. Unlike other agencies in our region, we are also committed to helping care for the diabetic patient population with a unique approach that provides daily touchpoints,” said Kris Carter, executive director, Aspire.
Synzi’s award-winning communication platform leverages everyday devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops to help health care organizations provide leading-edge, cost-contained, patient-centric care. Aspire’s initial platform deployment was executed in June and uses HIPAA-compliant secure messaging, email, text and multi-way video to engage diabetic patients on a daily basis. Diabetes-specific messaging is also being used to drive patient adherence in monitoring their blood sugar levels and following nutrition, exercise and lifestyle guidance.
“Patients with diabetes can experience frequent hospital readmissions and Aspire is using the Synzi platform to provide their patients with education, self-management and motivational support,” said Lee Horner, CEO of Synzi. “With Synzi, Aspire is able to reduce rehospitalization rates and remain profitable when treating a patient population which other agencies are no longer able to support with the shift to Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) and value-based care.”
With Synzi’s patient and clinician apps, Aspire is helping patients with diabetes receive the ongoing support they need to manage their condition and improve their quality of life. Aspire will also use the Synzi platform for patients with multiple chronic conditions and co-morbidities. Bidirectional communication functionality enables all of Aspire’s patients to access clinicians on-demand, receive the care they need and lower the risk of rehospitalization.
