With reducing reimbursement, skilled nursing shortage, and increasing pressure to improve outcomes, Home Care agencies need to be more progressive to standout. With Telehealth, Home Care agencies can optimize number of visits rather than a purely scheduled basis. Being a web based system nurses can log in from anywhere to check in on their patients and plan visits as needed. Telehealth drives improved outcomes and also identifies patients who can benefit from re-certification. You can design follow up of discharged patients using our simple automated calls.
Patients transmit their blood pressure, oximetry levels, pulse rate, weight readings daily with equipment installed in their home. If any reading is outside the parameters set by their nurse, a notification is sent to the nurse. This real-time feedback helps healthcare professionals detect and address even the slightest abnormalities before they become serious, preventing emergency room visits and re-hospitalizations.
This low cost, easy to use system is the favorite among home health agencies. Since everything is web based and wireless, it is very simple to setup and use.
Who should get Telehealth?
Candidates to be considered are patients with:
Carematix solution is modular in design and can be customized per patient according to physician care plan directive. A number of vital signs can be taken from a patient including: blood pressure, oxygen saturation, pulse rate, weight (up to 400 lbs.), peak flow and blood glucose.
A physician can choose to have a patient’s vital signs monitored multiple times throughout the day as needed. Clinical questionnaire assessments and medication reminders can be customized and delivered over automated phone calls.
Carematix technology brings benefits to both patients and health care professionals. When patient’s vital signs are taken on a daily basis, irregularities can be caught before they become full-fledged problems. Nurses can be sent to patients’ homes at unscheduled times in addition to regular nursing visits, and based on the daily data, work directly with the patient’s doctor to adjust medication and diet regimens. Enrolling a patient in a telehealth program has consistently shown:
Evelyn is an elderly woman who after suffering a heart attack was required by her doctor to record her pulse, blood pressure and weight several times a day. She then had to phone these numbers in on a daily basis to health care provider. In addition to being time consuming, this process did not always yield the most accurate results. After switching to the Carematix system, she was impressed by the efficiency and ease of use of the system. This ease of use and accessibility is what defines the Carematix advantage.
