This information is immediately transmitted via a standard phone line to the patient's caregiver for review.
"The Cardiocom System is a valuable device that proactively ensures coordinated care from our staff visitations and client self monitoring," says John Dziubik, RN, Director of Nursing of Silas Home Care. "Cardiocom's Commander device reports measurable data that is vital to home care goals and we can adjust outcomes based on real time information.
