Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network Welcomes WebCareHealth as Strategic Partner
Better Together


WebCareHealth, a leading remote patient monitoring provider for the management of patients with heart failure, anticoagulation management, and other chronic conditions, announced a partnership with the Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network (ICAHN), a not-for-profit organization focused on strengthening critical access and small, rural hospitals through collaboration. WebCareHealth will serve as a preferred partner to ICAHN and its 57 member hospitals by offering guidance on remote patient monitoring to improve health outcomes, access to care, and revenue streams.

ICAHN named WebCareHealth as one of its strategic partners to support its goals to serve as a recognized resource for critical access hospitals and rural health needs; promote efficient use of information technology services; and offer educational opportunities and resources for its members.

“We are excited to add WebCareHealth as an ICAHN partner. Our partnership is timely and critical given the challenges our member hospitals and rural health programs have faced during COVID. Together, we’ll be able to share resources, expertise, and best practices on utilization of new technologies like remote patient monitoring software for optimal care,” said Patricia Schou, Executive Director, Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network.

WebCareHealth will offer education on the optimal use of remote patient monitoring for improving health outcomes for patients. As part of this, WebCareHealth will share best practices and tools that hospitals and health programs can use to more efficiently manage patients with complex conditions through real-time data collection and reporting for reimbursement.

WebCareHealth is proud to partner with ICAHN to provide our expertise on remote patient monitoring,” said Teresa Sieck MPAS, PA-C, Ph.D., CEO, and Chief Medical Officer of WebCareHealth. “Through this new partnership, we will be able to offer our resources and expertise to solve critical access hospitals and rural healthcare needs across Illinois. This is a great example of how we can combine technology with clinical expertise so critical to improving health outcomes and experiences for both patients and providers.”

As of April 2021, WebCareHealth is working with today’s leading hospitals and health systems including MercyOne Iowa Heart Center/Catholic Health Initiatives, Sutter Health, Sanford Health, University of Wisconsin, UnityPoint, Avera Health, and Virtua Health.
