Blood pressure, heart activity and weight measurements are among the vital statistics that can be monitored. With this technology, nursing response times to condition changes are reduced and emergency department visits and hospitalization days can be decreased.
Home Health is pleased to offer telemonitoring as a way to improve the care of home-bound patients by helping physicians identify problems before they advance to more serious levels.
