Approximately 100 million Americans suffer from one or more chronic illnesses such as congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension, and diabetes. Such conditions account for more than 75 percent of annual healthcare costs nationally. By using in-home telemonitoring, healthcare providers can more effectively manage patient health, preventing exacerbations and complications which may lead to rehospitalizations and emergency room visits, especially among patients living with chronic illnesses.  Mobile-based telemonitoring interventions allow clinicians to gather data from patients remotely, be it at home or elsewhere. We can gather data from them and provide clinical feedback after analyzing it, and then take action. By using the vital signs, we can anticipate exacerbations and react to them. For instance, we can invite patients to come to the ED before anything that may jeopardize their lives occurs. In this way, you can avoid mortalities and hospital admissions/readmissions.

The main objective of our @HomeCore Solutions Telemonitoring program is to intervene with proven interventions to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions while Promoting Positive Outcomes by providing daily monitoring between nursing and doctors visit while giving family members a peace of mind knowing that our Clinical Management team are monitoring their loved ones health 24/7. Our @HomeCore Solutions™ Telemonitoring Program provides patients with discreet in-home monitors allowing them to monitor their own vital signs – such as pulse, weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, or blood oxygen levels-daily, as specified by their physician. If the readings fall outside a range prescribed by the physician, a patient’s Case Manager Nurse is alerted, so appropriate action can be taken under the direction of the PCP if required. A patient’s data can also be made available to nursing staff or to the physician via a secure website ensuring HIPPA Compliance guideline adherence.

What Is In-Home Telemonitoring?

In-home TeleHealth is the use of telecommunications data information gathering technology to provide healthcare monitoring to patients in the privacy of their own homes. TeleMonitoring can help prevent a symptom from becoming a trip to the hospital. Our @HomeCore Solutions™ TeleMonitoring Program is a fast, simple way for us to keep an eye on your vital signs and symptoms every day.

That means we can catch an early warning sign, such as a sudden rise in blood pressure, and treat it before it becomes a bigger problem. It also gives your physician information that is important for your ongoing care. TeleMonitoring allows us to check your blood pressure, heart rate, blood glucose level, oxygen levels, and weight, health status. It lets you take your own vital signs with ease, and sends them to us over your phone line with the push of a button.
