Telemonitoring in Your Home
Telehealth monitors are used to track pertinent information in a patient’s home such as, weight, blood pressure and oxygen saturation. The device is left in the patient’s home and information is sent to a central repository where it is reviewed and interpreted. The patient is taught how to take their weight, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation daily and then a clinician reviews the information and interacts with the patient or home care agency via the phone.
