Liberty HomeCare & Hospice Services is helping to bring house calls into the 21st century, thanks to new telemonitoring technology. Telemonitoring allows a patient’s medical team to monitor him or her remotely. By implementing Liberty’s telemonitoring system in a patient’s home, a medical professional can receive vital information via telephone lines. For example, through telemonitoring, a physician can monitor a patient’s heart rate, blood pressure, glucose, hemoglobin, and even weight.
By using telemonitoring, Liberty HomeCare & Hospice Services helps patients minimize travel while remaining actively involved in their own healthcare. In addition to objective monitoring through equipment, medical personnel can subjectively monitor a patient through questions over the phone or Internet. This data, coupled with statistics gained from telemonitoring equipment, helps a medical team assess a patient’s condition and prescribe treatment, much like a physician would do during an on-site appointment.
Liberty HomeCare & Hospice Services patients with diabetes or hypertension commonly take advantage of telemonitoring so they can avoid frequent medical trips to check vital signs on a regular basis. Such efficient use of technology benefits both patients and healthcare providers, plus yields valuable information for a patient’s chart. Also, by being more involved in their own treatment, patients gain a better sense of how statistics correlate with their overall health.
