Islands Community to provide remote patient monitoring services through a partnership with BlueStar TeleHealth
ROCKVILLE, MD, US, January 12, 2022
Covid-19 has led to remote patient monitoring (RPM) becoming far more popular for patients, providers, and
nurses. Islands Community wanted to better serve their patients by offering
RPM and has chosen to outsource some of that work to BlueStar. BlueStar will help Islands Community offer RPM quickly and effectively
without burdening its existing staff.
Collaboration. Care. These are the words that come to mind when I think of ICMS. ICMS has served Vinalhaven for 70 years – and our doors remain open to resident, vacationers and visitors, alike.” – Cameron Garrett, ICMS Executive Director
BlueStar’s CEO, retired Admiral Robert Wray, said, “We are honored to work with Islands Community team to deliver better care to patients in their home.” Islands Community’s medical professionals recently began offering remote patient monitoring (RPM) to their patients and believe they will benefit from BlueStar’s turnkey service and support allowing their medical professionals to maintain their focus on providing excellent healthcare to patients.
