HOW TELEHEALTH WORKS
Helping to improve clinical outcomes and reduced acute care hospitalizations
» A physician prescribes telehealth and refers the patient to a home health agency.
» The agency installs the telehealth equipment and trains the patient on its proper use.
» The patient takes their vital signs and answers personalized, clinician-directed surveys.
» Results are automatically sent to a website via wifi, bluetooth, landline or cellular signal.
» The agency's telemonitoring nurse monitors the patient daily and alerts the patient and care team when results fall outside pre-defined limits.
» Physicians receive trending reports from the home health agency, or they can access patient information through a secure web portal.
