Encore Healthcare announced results from their new oxygen and nebulizer management Nexus TeleRespiratory Care model. Encore has used its over 20 million data points from chronic respiratory failure patients on home ventilation to build a predictive model that allows Home Medical Equipment (HME) providers to identify when patients need services before they end up in the hospital multiple times. In the initial pilot with a national HME provider Encore identified 12.5% of patients on oxygen/nebulizers needed additional services. The results are an example of how data can drive better patient outcomes and revenue to HME providers at the same time.
