78% of Vermonters over 65 agree: “What I’d like is to stay in my home for as long as possible.”
Telemonitoring is a way of providing remote care, support, and education to Central Vermonters at home via the use of hand-held tablets equipped with video and audio functionality. Patients can use their telemonitor tablet to communicate with their CVHHH clinician, primary care provider or specialist, and with family members.
Telemonitors can be used for Central Vermonters of all ages. Many of our telemonitor clients say that having a telemonitor in their home made them feel safe – knowing they have a regular connection with, and easy access to, a nurse – and improved engagement with their disease process. With telemonitoring, CVHHH can keep close track of your vital signs (blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure, heart rate, weight) and catch potential exacerbations before a visit to the emergency department is required. This level of interaction is especially valuable for Central Vermonters living with high-risk chronic conditions like heart and lung disease and hypertension.
Telemonitors makes it easy for CVHHH to stay in touch with you and to provide in-home, remote supports that complement the in-person care our skilled clinicians and personal care attendants provide.
