“My dad is constantly raving about his home
health nurse. I’m so pleased with Affilia.”
Telehealth technology allows us to monitor your health conditions when our staff is not present. If your home healthcare plan indicates the use of telehealth, we will set up a monitor in your home to track vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, and weight.
This monitor not only alerts you when it is time to check these vital signs, but also is programmed to ask questions about your specific health condition. A nurse in our office reviews this information and calls you about any notable changes. These changes may indicate a need to have one of our nurses contact your doctor or visit you.
Benefits of Telehealth
Convenience – With telehealth, your vital signs and answers are looked over by a telehealth nurse behind the scenes, without you waiting for results.
Increased comfort – Like our other personal care option, telehealth allows you to receive care in the comfort of your own home.
Greater access to care – You remain under the careful supervision of your team of doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals, no matter how far away you live.
