Telehealth Home Monitoring
Patients with chronic conditions may benefit from Telehealth.
Patients who frequently use emergency care, have difficulty managing medications or have been hospitalized in the past year for a chronic condition or illness may benefit from the use of a Telehealth Monitoring System.
- Telehealth uses wireless telecommunications equipment placed anywhere in the patients’ homes to take their vital signs every day.
- Each Telehealth monitor is customized per patient, according to a physician’s care plan directives.
- A trained, professional nurse will monitor the patient’s vital signs and symptoms daily for irregularities and report any problems to the physician and to concerned family members.
- Daily monitoring will reduce the number of hospital re-admissions, emergency care visits, and will create “peace of mind” for family members.
