Telehealth & Remote Patient Monitoring: The New Standard of Care

At American Homecare Health Services we care deeply about improving the lives of our patients and their families. We’ve partnered with Health Recovery Solutions, the #1 rated remote patient monitoring company to provide the most comprehensive care available. 

What is telehealth? And why is it more than Facetime virtual visits?

  1. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) – “periodic, asynchronous, or continuous monitoring and transmission of vital signs, including weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, glucose levels, heart rate, or heart rhythm.” HRS patients use remote patient monitoring to record their vitals via bluetooth biometrics. Their provider monitors these vitals in real time on HRS’ clinician dashboard, ClinicianConnect, or in some cases, directly within their EMR.
  2. Interactive Patient Care (ICP) – live and interactive communication between a patient and provider. This includes phone consultations, video examinations, secure consults, etc. HRS clients and patients leverage ICP when they are utilizing the video visit functionality of the HRS platform on either the mobile application, tablet, or for providers, directly from the clinical dashboard.
  3. Store and Forward – asynchronous capture and transmission of images, videos, and sound. Patients on the HRS platform leverage store and forward technology when using the wound imaging capability on the HRS tablet and mobile application. The patient takes a picture of the wound, which is then delivered to ClinicianConnect for the provider to review.

PatientConnect Complete is a tablet and advanced biometric device offering. Respond to alerts when patients are at risk for readmission and communicate with patients in real-time through video, phone, and text chat. Improve patient engagement with condition-specific education, symptom surveys, medication reminders, and more.
