Anthony J. Bacchi, M.D.
Dr. Bacchi was the Founder and Chairman of Manhattan-based MagnaCare LLC, the third largest provider network in New York, covering 1.4 million lives. He also is the former medical director of New York Trades Council / Association of New York City Health Centers, Inc. and was named “Entrepreneur of the Year” by Ernst and Young during his tenure. Dr. Bacchi’s commitment to improving quality of patient care while reducing costs and preventing unnecessary hospital admissions led to the development of the TeliStat™ Restorative Care Unit (TRCU), which revolutionized patient care in Skilled Nursing Facilities.
The TRCU was designed to dramatically improve the quality of patient care and reduce readmissions to hospitals for patients by leveraging a combination of people, process, and technology. The TeliStat™ concept received a $4.5 million grant from the New York State Department of Health that was matched with a Federal grant of $4.5 million to replicate the successful TeliStat™ model throughout New York State. The program was independently audited and showed a reduction of readmission rates from the New York State average of 21% to less than 6% for 3 years on over 1000 patients.
Based on the success of the TeliStat™ nursing home program, Dr. Bacchi developed integrated technology, incorporating a cardiac patch and other devices to provide monitoring services when patients were discharged back into their homes.
Out of this technological development, MonitorMe™ was born.
The MonitorMe™ concierge program works in tandem with a Monitoring Intervention Center (MIC) which continuously monitors patient data at our corporate headquarters in New York, allowing for immediate medical intervention by physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and registered nurses. Through the MIC, a physician’s understanding of a patient’s health is no longer limited to a moment or day of testing, but can now be informed by longitudinal, real-time data collected seamlessly from wearable sensors.
Dr. Bacchi continues to be a disruptive force in the industry with over 40 years’ experience creating innovative healthcare programs and building successful organizations from the ground up.
