ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, March 14, 2022 — BlueStar Telehealth, a leader in remote patient monitoring (RPM) services, announced today that it has been awarded a contract for telehealth delivery services with Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement company in the U.S. The contract includes a BlueStar HIPPA-compliant tablet, clinician monitoring through RPM software to provide data flow from the in-home patient to BlueStar to the client clinical monitoring team and to the smart phones of the patient’s family. The agreement with Vizient — whose members represent more than half of the hospitals and health systems in the U.S and serves 97 percent of all the academic medical centers — offers pre-negotiated pricing and terms for BlueStar’s full suite of services that allow its clients to outsource most of their RPM programs leading to faster launches and growth.
