Our experts provide personal, in-home monitoring that combines home healthcare services with technology to help you better manage your chronic conditions at home.
Telemonitoring uses an automated device in your home that takes your vital signs each day (including heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels and weight), reminds you to take medications and answers simple questions about your condition and specific diagnosis.
In less than three minutes, your health data is easily collected and securely transmitted to a nurse in the office to review and follow up with you as needed. Your doctor will discuss the telemonitoring option with you.
You may qualify for telemonitoring if you have a condition such as:
- Congestive heart failure
- Chronic lung disease
- Cardiovascular disease
Telemonitoring allows nurses to manage your health seven days a week, providing you a sense of comfort and security. Over time, telemonitoring decreases hospitalization and ER visits while improving clinical outcomes.
Chronic Disease Management
Our experts help patients with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart failure and breathing conditions to better manage their health and achieve an increased quality of life.
Our specially-trained clinicians use a patient-centered approach that helps you learn to manage your illness in the comfort of your own home. Through coaching and education, you and your family learn self-management skills that increase confidence to live a healthier lifestyle.
Our expert physicians, nurses and therapists design each program to prevent future problems, reduce ER visits and re-hospitalization, and improve your quality of life.
Our experts offer vestibular rehabilitation and balance therapy for patients with dizziness and imbalance symptoms.
Vestibular rehabilitation uses exercise therapy to decrease dizziness and improve symptoms that may contribute to loss of balance. A specially-trained, certified physical therapist conducts a comprehensive evaluation and designs a specific, individualized exercise program to improve your vestibular and imbalance problems.
Vestibular rehabilitation can:
- Decrease dizziness
- Improve balance and safety
- Increase activity levels
- Improve your overall general physical condition
