Telehealth is the delivery of health-related services and information via telecommunications technologies. Telehealth may be part of a client’s Home Health plan of care. Telehealth provides the opportunity for our nurses to review some of our client’s health information, even when a visit to the home is not needed.
Telehealth encompasses preventative and curative aspects and helps promote client independence. With Telehealth, Home Health will be able to monitor weights, blood pressures, oxygen saturations, pulse, and blood sugars.
