Telehealth technology is specific to each client’s needs. An assessment of each client needs to be conducted prior to usage to ensure synchronization with trend and predictive analysis tools.
The perfect technology.
Five years ago, I began a new quest in my career as a professional engineer. Using my engineering background, I began to see the future of technology within the health care industry labeled as tele-health. Wireless, cellular based technologies can be used to monitor a person's biometrics and pattern of life to increase and prolong independence. A yearlong study with a local non-profit organization proved that tele-health was capable of reducing the overall cost of health care by 33%.
Costs are based on the number of technologies needed for safety and trend / predictive analysis. Current telehealth technologies include Base Unit, 24/7 monitoring service, Wireless Help Button, Medication Reminder / Alert, Automated Caregiver Check in / out, Activity Monitoring / Alert, Online Data Access, Fitbit, Extra Activity Sensors, Extra Help Button, Blood Pressure Meter, Glucose Meter, Weight Scale, Pulse Oximeter, Spirometer, Medication Dispenser (with Visual and Audible Reminders, Missed Med Call, Missed Med Alert and Report, Online Schedule and Report), Mobile Help Button (24/7 Call Center, GPS Location Finder, Wander Alerts, Medication Reminders, Fall Detector and MD Hotline (24/7 Nurse Phone Line, Medication Info and Advice, Procedure Info and Advice, Testing Info and Advice, Diagnosis Info and Advice).
Technology is evolving continuously and packages may change based on technology availability. All costs are based on 3-month minimum and may change until finalized with signed contract.
