Date:11/15/2012

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert Bosch Healthcare, Inc., the market leader in evidence-based telehealth solutions, and a subsidiary of the Bosch Group, today announced new evidence that an integrated telehealth and care management program (the Health Buddy Program) can significantly reduce all-cause mortality in high-cost, high-risk Medicare beneficiaries with heart failure (HF).

In 2010, costs associated with HF were estimated to be $34.4 billion annually (direct and indirect costs).[i]  In 2006, Medicare beneficiaries with HF accounted for 37 percent of all Medicare spending and 50 percent of all inpatient hospital costs.[ii]  Developing strategies to reduce readmission rates and improve outcomes for patients with HF has become a national health priority.

Retrospective Medicare claims data for HF beneficiaries enrolled in the 2006-2010 Medicare Care Management for High-Cost Beneficiaries (CMHCB) Demonstration in the Pacific Northwest (intervention group) were compared to control HF Medicare beneficiaries. HF was identified by ICD-9 codes and intervention and control beneficiaries were propensity-score matched using logistic regression. The program's effect on all-cause mortality over three years was estimated using Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and Cox proportional hazards models. Data for 623 matched pairs of Medicare HF beneficiaries were analyzed.

The results showed that care management combined with the Health Buddy System was associated with a 25 percent reduction in all-cause mortality risk in beneficiaries with HF, who were offered the program and a 57 percent reduction in mortality risk for those HF beneficiaries who actively participated in the program.

Lead author of the study, Robert L. Page II, PharmD, MSPH, Associate Professor of Clinical Pharmacy at the University of Colorado School of Pharmacy, stated: "Over the past five years, integrated telemedicine programs have become an eme
