"Advancing patient care with innovative technologies is one of our core values," said Larry Anderson, chief executive officer at Tri-City Medical Center. "This collaboration will enable us to further reduce our hospital readmission rates that are already some of the best in the country. By better coordinating care for our patients, we're better able to keep them going about their daily activities from the comfort of their own homes."
The program is slated to start in January 2013.
