The Augment Health FDA Approved weight scale allows you to be on top of your patients weight remotely by getting the fastest and most accurate reading using an advanced measuring technique. All devices have a cellular SIM Card that is capable of working in 120 countries. Patient BMI and weight are automatically send to HiPAA compliant cloud within seconds of the patient taking the readings and the provider is able to monitor them on a continuous basis. This is critical as any abnormal changes in patients weight could be an underlying issue towards congestive heart failure . For enhanced patient engagement the patients can also download a native application on their smartphones and continuously monitor their readings and trends via AI based graphical charts . The always available data access to the provider allows them to take better care of their high risk patients between the visits.
When a patient receives a Augment Health Weighing Machine, it’s fully configured and plug and play device — no smartphone, app, Bluetooth, or WiFi are required.
Why should you care:
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
When a patient has congestive heart failure, 2-3 pounds can indicate an important change in water retention. Sudden or steady gain in daily weight (for example, 2 to 3 pounds in 24 hours or 5 pounds over a couple of weeks) shows that the body is retaining fluid. Because the heart isn’t pumping as it should, fluids can start to build up. This can cause congestion in the lungs and other tissues, causing shortness of breath, swelling, and fatigue. This is known as “congestive heart failure”. Gaining a few pounds is the first sign that heart failure is getting worse, so having that information, continuously, about your patients can save lives.
41% of U.S. adults over the age of 60 suffer from obesity, which can lead to heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer. Part of your obese patients’ weight management plan should include what happens between visits — this means regular weigh-ins. Augment Health Weight scale sends critical information to providers pertaining to their high risk patients weight and BMI. Intuitive charts developed on the portal allows the provider to monitor weight trends over time and track progress in obese patients.
