Telemonitoring

TelemonitoringTelemonitoring solutions can help seniors and people with disabilities or chronic illnesses live safely and independently at home. Telemonitoring also can connect patients in rural or remote areas, as well as those living in natural disaster or war zones, with offsite healthcare providers. A simple tabletop device provides monitoring, including video feed. Health care providers can see and talk to patients while monitoring vital signs such as body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate.

All patient data is collected and sent to a designated healthcare provider. With a few clicks of a mouse, the provider can view an all-encompassing patient health history, including the patient's most-recent vital signs, health trends, and nursing notes.

Collecting and reviewing vital patient data each day helps healthcare providers react quickly to actual or potential problems. By responding to problems in the earliest, most-treatable stages, physicians often can help patients avoid costly return hospital admissions and emergency department visits.

Easy-to-use telehealth monitoring systems are especially helpful for seniors, people with limited mobility, patients recovering from surgery or injury, and anyone with a chronic condition such as congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes and asthma. Pregnant women diagnosed with gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension or preeclampsia also will appreciate the convenience of an in-home monitoring system.
