Telehealth is the consistent and accurate remote monitoring of a patient's health condition. This includes vital signs monitoring and advisory information. This helps to reduce hospital admissions and aid early diagnosis of unforeseen health problems. It also empowers patients to take a more active role in their care.
The Telehealth monitor works through an existing telephone line. At an agreed time the monitor will signal that it is time for the person to take their vital signs and answer symptomatic health questions. The data is received at Medway Control Centre where the system automatically checks for any variances in the data. If there is a variance then this gets reported to the clinicians promptly.
All data within the parameters is recorded and passed over to the primary care trust on a weekly basis or the clinicians can access them through a secure log-in.
The vital sign measurements are taken using a blood pressure cuff, pulse oximeter, thermometer, weight scale and glucometer.
Each telehealth monitor can be customised according to the needs of the individual patient. It can be used to monitor long-term conditions such as heart failure, diabetes, and other conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma and stroke.
