OSF Home Care Services' Telemonitoring System gives you peace of mind and improved quality of life by providing a communication service which is capable of the following:
- At-home patient monitoring around the clock, including monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, temperature and weight
- Storage of vital signs in a central station at OSF Home Care Services and immediate notification of measured vitals registered outside the norm
- Prevention of unneeded patient hospitalizations and visits to the emergency room
How Are the System and Information Useful?
Because vital signs are stored in a central station at our office, the data is available at any time for your review. For instance, we can fax a graphic trend of your vital signs to your physician the morning of your office visit. This capability is especially beneficial for post-surgical patients, those with congestive heart failure or hypertension and anyone on beta-blockers.
