Telemedicine



“Telemedicine will allow our staff to detect early warning signs in a change of health,” said Daniel Reingold, President and CEO of The Hebrew Home. “It will help prevent chronic conditions from escalating into something more serious.”    

Telemedicine offers the latest in technology for residents who are homebound due to chronic health conditions or disabilities. Employing small, easy-to-use machines in the home, the Telemedicine system monitors daily vital health information electronically, thereby reducing unnecessary ER visits and hospitalizations.
For about $4 a day, ElderServe patients living at home can have their machines programmed to check vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, or glucose levels at set times throughout the day. The information can then be transmitted to an ElderServe nurse, who immediately monitors the results. If the reported information is outside of the normal range, the nurse can arrange for the necessary visit or medical treatment.
