Home Health Services: TeleHomeCare
Outreach Health Services' new TeleHomecare program uses state-of-the-art computer equipment to monitor patients' health and emotional status in the home environment. By integrating live video images and sound with medical peripherals, the equipment provides a complete, real-time picture of a patient's condition, concerns and compliance with treatment protocols. TeleHomecare may be used for homebound and chronically ill patients or patients who live in remote areas.
The system electronically transmits voice, video and patient medical data over ordinary phone lines and allows us to monitor the patient's medical condition, teach new information and reinforce previous health education. Patients can be evaluated both visually and verbally, then in more detail with measurements that include heart, lung and bowel sounds and blood pressure.
High-resolution video also allows nurses to view wounds and dressings, IV pumps and more. In addition, the equipment monitors weight and uploads glucose and blood pressure readings to TeleHomecare nurses at central stations located in our Medicare offices.
TeleHomecare is available free of charge to qualified Medicare patients and is also offered on a private pay basis.
