Maintaining an active lifestyle helps decrease the risk of chronic health issues such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes in many people. Staying active has also proven to act as an effective stress reliever. Although there is no guarantee that an active lifestyle will prevent all forms of age-related health issues, there is something you can do to effectively manage them. Transcend Active Lifestyle Monitoring™ is an implementation of Transcend’s Lifestyle Management™ service that detects changes in your key vital signs – both sudden and over time.
Active Lifestyle Monitoring™
Your 24 x7 Partner In Health And Fitness
Having age-related health issues is no reason not to stay active. Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle is the key to aging gracefully. Retirement can be the best years of your life. However, acknowledging and managing any health-related issues is important to keep them at bay. Transcend Active Lifestyle Monitoring is a service that does the heavy lifting for you by constantly tracking your vitals in the background while you go about your daily life. You simply wear a Smart Watch or use an FDA-cleared medical device and we do the rest.
We Monitor Your Vitals While You Live Your Life
Transcend Active Lifestyle Monitoring works through our monitoring staff, licensed nurses and physicians to provide more predictable health outcomes and supports a longer and more vibrant life. We work with one of our medical staff to set up a custom Care Plan for monitoring your vitals. Whether you are performing an activity, lounging by the pool or sitting at your computer, we are there for you around the clock. If at any time, a vital sign we are monitoring exceeds the maximum condition set by the medical staff, our monitoring staff will be alerted on our Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Dashboard. You will then be contacted immediately by video, phone or text to inform you of the issue and check to make sure you are ok. A Nurse and/or Doctor will be included in the conversation if necessary to recommend any next steps. The goal is to correct issues before they become an emergency.
Providing Trend Analysis For Predictability
We maintain your vitals reporting numbers over time in our Electronic Health Records (EHR) database. This provides us with trending information. For example, a temperature that shows it is continuously increasing allows us to observe and mitigate the issue before it becomes an event.
Our RPM Service Works With Your Apple and Google Smart Watches
Our RPM service is capable of working with Smart Watches that are Apple Health and Google Health compliant. If you have an existing Smart Watch that meets these criteria, we will work with you to see if it supports monitoring one or more chronic conditions. These conditions need to be part of your personal Care Plan set up for you by our medical team. We send monitoring data using Bluetooth or Cellular. Cellular Smart Watches send data directly to our server. Bluetooth Smart Watches send data to an application on your mobile phone, which in turn, sends data over a cellular network to our server.
We Monitor FDA Cleared Medical Devices
Not all chronic conditions can be monitored through your wearable. When this happens, we will make FDA-cleared medical devices available to you that are fit for purpose. FDA-cleared medical devices we support include, but are not limited to:
- Pulse Oximeter
- Blood Pressure Monitor
- Blood Glucose Meter
- Weight Scales
RPM Greatly Reduces Hospital Re-admissions
Most of us will or have had an experience with a Hospital stay. Hospitals walk a fine line between sending a patient home when they are truly ready as opposed to a bit too early. Transcend RPM provides you the reassurance of knowing you are well taken care of once at home. Transcend RPM closely monitors you with connected wearables and medical devices like pulse oximeters, blood pressure cuffs and fitness trackers. Once your Care Plan is set up, our medical staff maintains awareness of your progress through our RPM dashboard. With Transcend RPM, you are no longer dependent on periodic home, in-person medical visits. Monitoring becomes an ongoing process – just part of your daily at-home routine.
Protecting Your Future
TranscendConnect is committed to working with the latest and best monitoring applications and technologies to ensure you can benefit from them. They are improving so rapidly, that it is difficult to stay ahead of the game with a single app or technology. For example, you can have a wearable, but also have an app on your phone that collects vitals by scanning your face or an app that gets vitals by placing your finger on your smartphone camera. We will provide recommendations for what works best based on the Doctor’s Care Plan. Currently, we believe wearing a Smart Watch day/night complimented by a smartphone app that gathers vitals on the spot is highly beneficial. This allows us to collect and track your vitals over time and obtain instant readings when we think they would help obtain a complete picture of your health.
