Taking everyday care into your own hands
Home Health Monitoring
HHM enables patients with severe chronic diseases or conditions to monitor health factors from the comfort of their homes and share this information electronically with health professionals. Tracking the patients’ results regularly, the healthcare team can adjust treatments as required.
Increased patient satisfaction and overall quality of care
Remaining at home, closer interaction with health professionals, reduced anxiety as well as fewer emergency-room visits and hospital stays all contribute to patient satisfaction.
Significant reduction of hospitalizations
By allowing the discharge of certain patients, HHM contributes to lowering hospital admissions*.
Increased healthcare team productivity and collaboration
The HHM solution enables more evidence-based care and more efficient patient case management for more patients. Each healthcare professional can support a much larger group of patients.
