The health care system needs not only budget cuts, has to be able to respond to a growing demand that comes from an increasingly ageing society and with more expensive treatments. A quality health service should get an increase of efficiency and productivity. Not only budget cuts but also deep structural reforms are needed. Some analysts have even identified them in the change of the model in the management of chronic, central purchasing, rationalization of the service or the intensive use of new technologies. It is in this field where Group Neat telemedicine solutions can help ensure quality health service. According to different studies, the use of telemedicine allows to reduce the number of consultations in primary care, as well as the duration of hospital stay of patients, which means significant cost savings.

The patient care is ensured at all times with a quality service. It is a fact that healthcare spending is growing at a faster rate that makes the economy and the ability of Governments fundraising to finance it. In the Spanish health system, chronic diseases account for between 70 and 80% of total health expenditure (public and private). Chronic diseases cause 80% of primary care consultations and 60% of hospital stays. Before these figures, telemedicine is emerging as a key tool to get around health problems and, in turn, make it more sustainable.

Telemonitorizacion systems allow the patient to be cared for by health personnel, but without having to navigate to the health center. TeleMedCare is the telemedicine solution for Neat Group, a system of monitoring patients that allows you to track and control primarily chronic sufferers of diabetes, hypertension, obesity or COPD.

TeleMedCare integrates with the platform’s own health service management, thereby facilitating labour workforce. The system has a tool of integration with platforms of third parties, based on standard protocols, which optimizes the management of health services.
