Use Telehealth to keep your employees’ hearts healthy

Health impacts your employees in more ways than you think, from productivity to taking days off. Work affects people's overall health, mental health, happiness, and also their life outcomes.

According to research conducted by Andrew Naber’s 071, an average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime. People go on to spend one-third of their life at work. As a result of the travel constraint, healthcare providers have been assisting patients remotely through the use of digital technologies. With workers getting back to work as the world is getting back to normal again, accessible telemedicine solutions can make significant changes to their health.

Telemedicine solutions are helping employees to prevent diseases like cardiovascular disease and keep a check on their health.

India is at the highest-burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Up to 44% of Indians are at risk of heart disease, says experts2. Rising risk of CVD in India, particularly among the 40-60 age group, requires immediate action. Now more than ever, heart care solutions are required to increase the value of healthcare by improving the quality of care and lowering costs.

Telehealth seems to be the best solution for employees right now. It is a new way of delivering care that has the potential to transform India’s healthcare system by reducing cost, improving quality, providing timely care and boosting patient satisfaction. Telehealth may increase access to solutions for people with CVD risk.

3 Reasons to Adopt Telehealth for Improving Employees Health

1 Improved Convenience

With the spread of the COVID-19 virus, people cannot travel long distances to seek medical care. Several studies report that those who needed medical care at an urgent hour had a difficult time receiving it due to unavailability and high patient population.

KardiaMobile 6L is the world's first and only US FDA-cleared 6 lead ECG monitoring device that monitors heart rhythm in just 30 seconds, allowing patients to connect remotely with their doctors.

Getting remote assistance from doctors can give employees greater access to the support they need from anywhere. KardiaMobile 6L is a portable, gel and wire-free ECG monitoring device that allows employees to record an ECG from anywhere, anytime.

2 Fewer Expenses

Employees can monitor their heart health from the workplace using devices like KardiaMobile 6L, so they don't have to make multiple doctor's appointments. Healthcare costs in India push millions of people below the poverty line. The hefty bills can discourage people from seeking routine heart care checks.

With the use of smart devices in the market, employees can reduce their overall visits to the hospital and cut down on their emergency visit costs by 20%. Having the KardiaMobile 6L ECG heart monitor in the workplace can reduce the risk of workplace injury, helping employees with lower insurance costs. Telehealth solutions are cost-effective, long-lasting and provide high-quality care despite the distance.

3 Quality Care and Outcomes

Telehealth solutions are known for providing high-quality care. Patients are involved at every step of the solution and are connected with a healthcare professional when necessary. KardiaMobile 6L allows people to monitor their heart health regularly to detect any signs of arrhythmias.

When people have control of their well-being, they tend to see better health results. AliveCor’s solutions are AI-powered to provide an advanced determination of arrhythmias to help the patient prevent the risk of developing heart disease.

Affordable heart care solutions cause significant changes in the heart health of most employees and improve their productivity and morale. Companies need to address heart health and its growing risk among their employees. Telehealth is here to stay, and companies that adopt early will experience a strong and well-performing workforce that stays ahead of the competition.
