Telehealth

We believe that integrating technology with expert clinical care will improve health and promote independence for our patients. Clinicians leverage the tools of Telehealth to:

  • Secure real-time data metrics to respond quickly to the signs and symptoms of illness;
  • Decrease hospitalizations and urgent care;
  • Engage and educate patients in following their healthcare and self-care plans;
  • Enhance caregiver participation in supporting patient progress and compliance.

Patient benefits

Using a 4G touchscreen tablet and wireless monitoring devices, patients take an active role in improving their health and quality of life. Telehealth allows patients to:

  • Monitor and record their vital signs and activity levels;
  • Improve medication compliance through program alerts and reminders;
  • • Connect with nurses and healthcare provider face-to-face using the tablet’s virtual visit capabilities;
  • Gain knowledge about their chronic conditions through educational videos and quizzes;
  • Learn to identify the signs and symptoms of illness.

Meet Betty. At 86 years old she is blessed with 7 children, 13 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren.She's looking forward to attending the wedding of one of her grandchildren this summer. In March, however, it didn't look as though Betty would be attending any more family events. She started to experience difficulty breathing; it worsened until she couldn't walk more than a few feet.
