It contributed to reducing mortality rates by 50% for patients with heart failure, pneumonia, and colectomy patients, preventing unnecessary blood transfusions, and reducing the time taken to administer a diuretic to patients with heart failure. It delivers virtual care services to improve patient outcomes and access while reducing the total cost of care.
