The Telehealth Program at Catholic Home Care is comprised of a team of specialty trained clinicians operating within the Certified Home Health Agency. These clinicians utilize the latest technology provided through Philips telemonitoring devices to partner with patients and their caregivers to assist in the proactive management of chronic disease processes to reduce the risk of rehospitalization.
Specialty trained nurses monitor data transmitted from the patient’s home each day and as needed. This data may include: heart rate, blood pressure, weight, and oxygen level. Telephonic contact is made with the patient/caregiver and physician if any of the data is outside of the physician established parameters. A skilled nursing visit may be arranged to further assess the patient’s status in the home.
