Left to their own judgments, patients typically are apt to make terrible decisions relating to their personal health. The ability to accurately access patient condition via telemonitoring creates the opportunity to intervene when that is called for clinically, and to provide education regarding healthy living in a way that is likely to create compliance with clinician recommendations.
Home telemonitoring programs need to use advanced technology. Effective monitors support patient education. They support timely clinician intervention based on real vital signs data gathered on a daily basis. Health care for patients with congestive heart failure has been shown to be successful in reducing hospitalizations and trips to the emergency department, making these critical measures unnecessary in many cases.
Wireless telemonitoring devices -enable taking vital signs measurements at home and in remote locations. Telemonitoring devices mean a consulting physician can remotely monitor a patient• fs health status and chronic condition can be gathered in real time.
Telemonitoring gives patients far more choices about how and when to react in case of change in medical condition, before a full blown emergency occurs. No matter if the patient is at home, on the bus, at the movies or anywhere in the course of daily life, wireless telemonitoring supports a more mobile lifestyle. Consistent and real time oversight greatly improves ongoing treatment, keeps patients healthier, and avoids expensive hospitalization.
Healthcare services providers use tele-monitoring technology to improve patient care and reduce nurse visits.-This has led the industry to point to inconclusive studies. More work is needed to identify the particular patient profiles of those most likely to benefit from telemonitoring in these double blind studies.
