Norwell VNA and Hospice Selects Cardiocom Telehealth as Its New Technology Vendor

MINNEAPOLIS, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Norwell VNA and Hospice, a 2008 HomeCare Elite top agency, announced that it has entered into a business relationship with Cardiocom((R)) to provide advanced home telehealth and disease management 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 a novel interactive opportunity to proactively manage patient care. Every day, Norwell VNA and Hospice patients use the Cardiocom Commander Telehealth System to communicate with a Norwell VNA and Hospice nurse. The Commander Home Telemonitoring System guides the patient through an interactive symptom management assessment and collection of vital signs including: weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate. This information is immediately transmitted via a standard phone line or cellular connection to the patient's caregiver for review.

"After a very extensive vendor selection process, we decided that the Cardiocom System had many key differentiators from our current telehealth provider," says Jackie Crossen-Sills, PT, PhD, Director of Program Development for the Norwell VNA and Hospice. "With Cardiocom's strong disease management background and software application, the new program will allow Norwell VNA and Hospice to further achieve clinical and financial goals within the organization," adds Dr. Crossen-Sills.
