TeleHealth Nursing & Home Monitoring Service

Our TeleHealth nursing services can help seniors and elderly patients who are living with a variety of long-term and chronic illnesses including chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder to manage and live with these diseases while maintaining their independence. For these individuals, the need to have vital signs and symptoms checked frequently often makes living own their own challenging. Therefore, these patients often have to move into a nursing home or pay for costly assisted living in order to frequently monitor and manage their medical needs.

Our TeleHealth Nursing Services

Telehealth Nursing: Remote Health MonitoringUsing our TeleHelath nursing and health monitoring services is simple enough for anyone to learn. When you sign up for our TeleHealth nursing services, our nurses will set up the necessary equipment, a small TeleHealth monitor, and provide basic training to make sure that you completely understand how to use the TeleHealth nursing system.

After this training and set up, each of our patients can then remotely connect with a nurse at our central station to supply daily health information. These nurses are highly trained and prepared to offer superior health monitoring and information for our patients.

The following is the simple, step-by-step process that patients will encounter each day when using our TeleHealth nursing services to monitor their health from the comfort and convenience of their own homes.

  • Vital Signs Check: The first step in using the TeleHealth nursing system is to use the monitor to check your vital signs. This will include blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, temperature, and weight.
  • Health Questions: For the second step of the TeleHealth nursing process, the TeleHealth monitoring machine will ask you a series of up to ten “yes” or “no” questions. These questions are individualized to each patient’s medical conditions and health needs and will help our nurses to further evaluate your health.
  • Nurse Review: After you complete the above routine, your results will be transmitted electronically through your regular home telephone to one of our TeleHealth nursing specialists. This nurse will then review and monitor the data daily to ensure your health and track changes in your condition.
