Telemanagement Program

 

Managing congestive heart failure can be a worrisome and challenging process. It means adjusting to new medications and conscientiously monitoring vital signs. Any fluctuations in weight, oxygen levels or heart rate could mean another trip to the hospital.

Valley Home Care’s Telemanagement program enables patients to monitor their health processes right at home and transmit them to Home Care nurses in real time, right through their home telephone connection.

Telemanagement patients are provided with a portable monitor that records blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen and glucose levels, and weight. Lightweight and easy to use, the home monitor is customizable with patient-specific information, reminders for taking medications, and educational information about managing each patient’s condition. At appointed times during the day patients take the necessary measurements while hooked up to the monitor. Readings are automatically transmitted via an “800” telephone number to a secure website and reviewed by Valley Home Care’s team of cardiac nurses.

Any deviation from the patients’ normal readings or a report of a symptom activates a call to the patient or caregiver, and any symptoms or readings that require an intervention, especially if a medication change is anticipated, will also generate a call to the patient’s physician.

Valley’s Telemanagement program is available for patients receiving services through Valley Home Care, and is covered by most insurance plans.
