25 January 2018 - The positive one-year results of a Heart Failure Telehealth programme, piloted by Changi General Hospital (CGH) and Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), showed a 67 per cent reduction in length of hospital stay for heart failure-related readmissions, a 42 per cent reduction in costs of care, and an enhanced quality of care. The heart failure patients enrolled in the telehealth programme benefitted from increased knowledge of their condition and improved self-care abilities, resulting in a greater confidence in managing their heart condition.
