FirstHealth Home Care provides telehealth monitors to eligible patients at no additional charge. This state-of-the-art technology can send patient data over a simple phone line to a central monitoring station where a registered nurse can review it.
The data includes blood pressure, temperature, blood sugar, pulse, weight and blood oxygen levels. Based on that data, the nurse can determine the best possible course of action.
This type of monitoring has been shown to reduce hospitalizations and emergency room visits. It also gives patients and their caregivers a tremendous sense of security, knowing that professionals are closely monitoring their condition on an ongoing basis.
