High-risk patients use this service to easily monitor health and key vital signs. The equipment is simple to use, and readings are automatically transmitted via phone lines.
What Is Telehealth?
It’s high-tech equipment, installed in homes of patients with chronic health conditions, that automatically measures and transmits vital-sign readings daily. The service is especially effective for those with congestive heart failure, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
Whom We Help
Connecticut residents with care needs due to a chronic or acute illness.
What to Expect
A visiting nurse will come to your home to set up the equipment and explain its use. Your equipment will be pre-programmed with information about you. Daily monitoring is painless and takes only a few moments; you simply step onto a scale and attach a monitoring cuff to your arm. Your daily readings will be compared to your standards for such things as weight, blood pressure, or pulse. If there is a problem, your current day’s readings will automatically be transmitted to your nurse and primary care physician for action. Your nurse will coordinate your care with your primary care physician to avert unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital admissions.
