Remote Patient Monitoring

Remote Patient Monitoring

It’s not uncommon for people with heart failure to do well when they first come home and then decline in the weeks after their return home. For this reason, we offer remote monitoring seven days a week.

Remote monitoring can detect early warning signs of potential problems, so people with heart failure can get the help they need sooner and avoid readmission to the hospital when possible.

We provide remote monitoring services to NKCH home health patients at no additional cost.

How Remote Monitoring Works

  • We provide you with a scale, blood pressure cuff and, depending on your condition, a pulse oximeter to record weight, blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen levels
  • We teach you how to use the equipment and send your health information securely to the monitoring software using your landline or cell phone
  • If you don’t report any data, or if your numbers are abnormal, a nurse calls you and determines if you need a home visit and/or physician input.
