Date:6/18/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Englewood Hospital Home Health and Hospice Services, the oldest homecare agency in Bergen County NJ, announced that it has entered into a business relationship with Cardiocom(R) to provide advanced home telehealth technology to patients with chronic illness. Cardiocom, the Experts in Telehealth(SM), is a world class developer, manufacturer and clinical service provider of award-winning telehealth solutions.

Cardiocom's telehealth system provides an interactive opportunity to proactively manage patient care. Every day, many of our cardio-respiratory patients use the Cardiocom Commander Telehealth System to communicate their vital signs to the agency where they are monitored by an Englewood Hospital Home Health nurse. The Commander Home Telemonitoring System guides the patient through an interactive health check and collection of vital signs including: weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate. This information is immediately transmitted via a standard phone line to the patient's caregiver for review.

"The Cardiocom System is a key tool that proactively ensures coordinated care from a hospital, nursing home or clinic to the patient's home," says Katherine Clark, MSN,RN,BC Manager of the Telemedicine Department. By transmitting objective, real-time health data every day, the patient is connected to our medical team so that their care plan can be adjusted as needed. This system uses today's most advanced home care technology and monitoring services. "We anticipate that Cardiocom's unique system will improve patient engagement and quality of life," adds JoAnn Walter, MSN,RN,BC Executive Director of Continuing Care.
