The OSF Home Care Services telemonitoring system gives you peace of mind and improved quality of life by providing a communication service that is capable of the following:
- Daily at-home patient monitoring, including monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, temperature and weight
- Storage of vital signs in a central station at OSF Home Care Services and immediate notification of measured vitals registered outside the norm
- Prevention of unneeded patient hospitalizations and visits to the emergency room
How is the System and Information Useful?
Because vital signs are stored in your medical record, the data is available at any time for review.
For instance, your physician can see your data when you go in for an office visit. This capability is especially beneficial for post-surgical patients, those with congestive heart failure or high blood pressure, and anyone on beta-blockers.
OSF Home Care is excited to incorporate this technology with various disease management protocols (example: heart failure).
