TeleHealth allows a nurse to monitor the patient daily while giving the patient their independence. A registered nurse remotely monitors the patient’s pulse ox, blood pressure, weight, and vital signs.
Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to remotely support clinical health care. The patient answers questions on the TeleHealth device each morning, and then sends the data to the nurse in the office. This program decrease readmits to the hospital and allows the physician to be notified quickly if a patient’s status changes.
