If you are being discharged from a hospital or skilled nursing center and need a helping hand on the road to recovery, be sure to request St. Barnabas Home Care.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is an effective new way for doctors to monitor patients between office visits. Health information is transferred securely by phone or the internet to health care professionals at a medical facility. That vital information can be used to detect complications or other medical issues early and has been shown to significantly improve patients’ quality of life.
St. Barnabas Home Care can set up a Telehealth system in your home to temporarily monitor vital signs such as:
What are the benefits?
Studies have shown that Telehealth medicine is highly effective, significantly reducing the chance that a patient will be hospitalized or rushed to the emergency room, especially after surgery or another serious medical procedure.
What if there is a problem?
With Telehealth monitoring, St. Barnabas Home Care professionals can detect potential problems right away and intervene if necessary. Our clinical team will consult with your doctor and, if recommended, will get new medications or a new treatment plan to help you get better faster.
Who needs Telehealth monitoring?
If you are coming home from the hospital or are living with a chronic medical condition, you are an ideal candidate for Telehealth monitoring. Our team of highly-trained clinicians will monitor your progress and will consult with your doctor should any issues arise.
How can I obtain this?
It is as simple as our St. Barnabas Home Care team calling and obtaining an order from your physician. Telehealth monitoring is free to our skilled nursing home care patients and is available to other patients as well.
