"Telehealth has significantly evolved over the eleven years we have practiced telehealth, in terms of both software and hardware, necessitating the need to explore systems to meet our current needs," said Ellen Bolch, president and CEO of THA Group. 

"We chose Cardiocom's telehealth system because it contains those elements that THA Group deemed critical in a new telehealth partner – sophisticated chronic disease management software with an emphasis on self-management, easy-to-install and -use monitors, cellular capability, two-way integration with our point of care system and willingness to partner and develop new ways to advance home health care as the solution to in-home, post acute care," added Bolch.
