AUBURN HILLS — CJPS Healthcare Supplies & Equipment Thursday announced a new Trade-Up program. This announcement comes on the heels of being the first and only company waiving all connectivity fees to caregivers accessing their patients’ data using VitalPoint.
With facilities looking to upgrade to easier-to-use, and more modern and reliable remote patient monitors, while trying to keep up with a sharp increase in older, chronically ill patients, this unique program could not come at a better time.
Due to the state of the economy, incentives for reducing hospital readmission rates, and expensive monthly connectivity fees tied to typical remote patient monitors, it can be difficult, especially for smaller healthcare facilities, to make upgrades to their existing telehealth programs. That’s why CJPS has launched this new program and is purchasing older remote patient monitors and replacing them with VitalPoint (http://www.cjps.com/medicalsystems/vitalpointhome/).
“I am shocked to see how many remote patient monitor units are out there, which are not being used often or at all, in spite of the huge need for this technology to reduce healthcare costs and improve patients’ quality of life,” said CJPS president Christope Sevrain. “An amazing percentage of our sales are trade-ups from units that have poor patient compliance, and therefore just don’t deliver the promise of telemedicine.”
In spite of large name competitors, CJPS continues to gain market share thanks to breakthrough industry firsts such as never charging any connectivity fees and now, buying back health care facilities’ existing remote patient monitors. This disruptive industry transformation, driven single-handedly by CJPS, and coupled with the VitalPoint technology, contributed greatly to the large national contracts recently won, such as the 33,000-unit order that the company announced just a few weeks ago.
VitalPoint is a standalone 4.5-pound device that can monitor blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, pulse rate, weight, glucose level, prothrombin time and ratios, temperature, fluid status, and provide electrocardiogram data, and provides the caregiver with the ability to remotely monitor patients’ conditions using their laptop or cell phone.
