Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring

There are several benefits of telehealth and remote patient monitoring for both healthcare providers and patients. Benefits range from cost savings, avoided ED visits, patient satisfaction, stress reduction, peace of mind and beyond. SummitWest care is proudly offering telehealth services to improve the quality of care and continuously monitor patients from the comfort of their own home.

  • Easy-to-use equipment is provided by HRS to the healthcare provider and then distributed accordingly to patients. Kits can include a tablet, as well as a Bluetooth pulseox, scale, BP cuff, glucometer, and/or thermometer.
  • Programs benefit patients from those recovering from surgery, to continuing care, and hospice patients, to those with chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and COPD.
  • What’s tracked and analyzed: vital signs, blood pressure, weight, and temperature. In cases of more severe chronic conditions, levels monitored can include blood glucose, oxygen levels, heart rate, and more.
  • Because patients don’t have to leave their homes, chances of contracting or spreading illness is decreased significantly.
  • Readmission to the hospital is less likely to occur when symptoms are monitored, and the clinician can intervene accordingly
