This partnership blends Locus Health’s enterprise remote patient monitoring and EHR (electronic health record) integration technologies with DispatchHealth’s hospital-alternative care. The collaboration will enable both companies to deliver comprehensive, high-quality healthcare services directly to patients in their homes, improving patient outcomes and reducing the need for hospital visits.
