Housecalls Are Back And Better Than Ever
It’s hard to remember a time when doctors actually made housecalls. However, with telehealth, patients can experience doctor visits from the comfort of home once again. Telehealth and ehealth technology are quickly rising in popularity in the healthcare industry for their proven benefits for both patients and healthcare providers alike.
Who can benefit from telehealth?
Patients with chronic diseases, such as:
- Congestive heart failure (CHF)
- Metabolic syndrome
People who have chronic diseases are often at a higher than average risk of being readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of a hospital discharge. A telehealth monitoring system, like those offered via North Home Healthcare, can provide:
- Better health outcomes due to regular symptom monitoring and timely intervention before a problem arises
- Improved patient self-care and health education
- Reduction in costly ER visits and hospital admissions or readmissions
