Bayshore HealthCare Launches Vantage, a Remote Patient Monitoring Service to Transform Healthcare Delivery
TORONTO (May 29, 2023) – Bayshore HealthCare (Bayshore) has launched an innovative remote patient monitoring (RPM) program designed to improve patient outcomes, enhance healthcare delivery, and streamline communication among healthcare providers.
Built in collaboration with Microsoft and using the power of Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, Vantage is a cloud-based solution that allows healthcare providers to monitor patients’ health remotely, provide timely interventions, and reduce avoidable hospital readmissions and emergency department visits. The Vantage platform is built on the HL7 FHIR data model, ensuring seamless interoperability with existing healthcare infrastructure.
Supported by Bayshore’s clinical team, Vantage is more than an RPM software solution. Bayshore’s dedicated nurses closely monitor a patient’s progress, engage with their caregivers and circle of care, and respond to any changes in a patient’s condition in a timely manner.
“With Vantage, we’re addressing some of healthcare’s most pressing challenges, such as staffing shortages, patient accessibility, and the cost of care delivery. Our remote patient monitoring solution is a crucial step forward in transforming healthcare for the better,” said Maureen Charlebois, Chief Nursing & Clinical Officer, Bayshore HealthCare.
The Vantage platform offers a wide range of features and benefits for patients, caregivers, hospitals, as well as home and community care providers, including:
- Streamlined remote and in-person patient onboarding
- Easy-to-use mobile app and medical devices
- Single point of contact for clinical and technical support
- The ability for caregivers to monitor their loved ones’ progress
- Electronic referral and patient progress monitoring
- Customizable care plans and goals
- Seamless integration with existing healthcare systems
“Vantage is a game-changer for the healthcare industry. By empowering patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers with real-time health data and tools, we’re making it easier for them to collaborate, make informed decisions, and create better patient outcomes,” said Dheeraj Paul, Director of Business Transformation, Bayshore HealthCare.
“Vantage is at the forefront of healthcare innovation, making significant contributions to transforming healthcare delivery in Canada,” said Peter Jones, Healthcare Industry Lead, Microsoft Canada. “We take pride in our collaboration with Bayshore HealthCare and in bringing Vantage to providers across the country. Together, we are empowering healthcare teams with innovative tools to improve patient outcomes and drive better healthcare experiences.”
Vantage leverages adaptable technology found in the Bayshore Digital Experience Platform, a new launching pad that facilitates the evolution of a suite of digital home healthcare programs and services to support people living with chronic diseases. This platform also allows Bayshore HealthCare to partner with healthcare organizations across Canada on innovative digital initiatives by supporting ease of integration.
