The Telehealth monitoring system promotes independence in management of disease process(es) at home and can help avoid rehospitalization. Telehealth is a very simply system that monitors vital signs, weight, Oxygen levels, etc., on a daily basis. Results are transmitted to the Home health office and reviewed by a nurse allowing for immediate intervention, if necessary, with patients, patient's family, and physicians. many times interventions can be accomplished via the phone (such as medication changes) and thus, reduce extra physician visits and/or rehospitalization. Telehealth provides peace of mind knowing assistance and possible intervention is only a click away. There is no extra charge for this service while receiving home health services. However for a nominal fee of $7.50 per day, Telehealth services can be provided for patients who do not quality for home health and/or have been discharged from home health and would like to continue the monitoring service.
