Good Heart determined which of their patients were a good fit for the program based on chronic condition and willingness to participate. Claris trained clinic staff over two online training sessions, each lasting about an hour. Staff then provided the cellular 4G blood pressure monitors to patients in the clinic, along with a few simple instructions on how to take their blood pressure at home.
After launching the remote blood pressure monitoring program in February, 2021, Good Heart enrolled approximately five to 10 new patients each week, eventually growing the program from zero to 156 patients over seven months.
As patients began using their BP monitors at home, the Claris team helped the staff at Good Heart oversee their documentation process, and made suggestions to fine-tune workflows based on their organization’s needs and practices.
Because of the platform’s ease of use and advanced workflow, the program offers great scalability to Dr. Hong to grow his practice.
