CVS Investment Helps Bring Remote Patient Monitoring to EBCAP


PROVIDENCE, R.I., Feb. 10, 2024 – Healthcentric Advisors was awarded a $25,000 CVS Health Foundation grant as part of its 2023 Hometown Fund, which supports the communities the company’s headquarters calls home. The grant will help expand use of Healthcentric’s PRiSM remote patient monitoring platform in partnership with East Bay Community Action Program to better connect underserved patients with their health care providers.

“The funding allows us to further our mission of advancing health care quality and empowering patients through innovative technology,” said John Keimig, Healthcentric CEO. “PRiSM gives doctors a more complete view between visits to best meet their patients’ needs.”

Through this CVS Health Foundation grant, Healthcentric and EBCAP will now be able to provide devices, connectivity and support for real-time monitoring of chronic conditions among EBCAP patients. By identifying warning signs early, PRiSM aims to prevent poor health outcomes and unnecessary health care utilization.

“When people have access to consistent health care and are equipped with the supporting services, they are better positioned to improve their health,” said Sheryl Burke, senior vice president of corporate social responsibility and chief sustainability officer at CVS Health. “Our Hometown Fund grantees serve as examples of the ongoing work focused on creating healthier, more equitable communities.”

These funds are part of $2 million in grants awarded locally by the CVS Health Foundation to help improve health outcomes and create a healthier, more equitable future for all. The foundation concentrated investments in organizations working to increase health care access and improve outcomes, with a focus on addressing health disparities.

The CVS Health Foundation Hometown Fund was created in 2022 to support local nonprofit efforts to improve health equity. For more information, click here.
