Calvert Focuses on Telemedicine

For the month of June, Calvert Home Health Care will be focusing on Telemedicine. Honeywell HomMed's proven telemonitoring model provides nursing personnel with daily clinical knowledge and allows patient visits to be made when a clinical need has been demonstrated. Having daily objective and subjective data can reduce the number of clinically unnecessary visits while improving patient oversight and outcomes. Honeywell HomMed's Telemonitoring System lets healthcare professionals work more efficiently since the system allows a nurse to observe the clinical health status of numerous patients at a time and effectively direct medical attention to those who need it.

The telemonitoring unit is placed in the user’s home or clinical environment and collects and transmits health status information such as weight, temperature, pulse, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, prothrombin time or glucose levels from the user to Calvert Home Health Professionals for monitoring and tracking. The Honeywell HomMed System, used properly along with adherence to diet, medication and a healthy lifestyle can dramatically improve the health and quality of life for people who suffer from chronic illnesses and other health conditions.

Each day, a gentle friendly voice guides the user through the procedure to collect their health information. The user is also asked up to 10 subjective disease related questions to further assist clinicians in evaluating their health. User health status information is securely, confidentially and automatically transmitted to Calvert Home Health for clinical oversight via a wireless two-way pager system or by a standard telephone line. No patient identifiers are attached to the data packets.

The Honeywell HomMed Health Monitoring System supports care management 7 days a week allowing pre-emptive care to be delivered by alerting clinical staff to even small changes in health and avoiding unnecessary and disruptive ER visits and hospitalizations
