Home Health Monitoring for Heart Failure and COPD (Community Health Services)
Home Health Monitoring for heart failure is monitoring service offered to clients in their home. Besides measuring their blood pressure, pulse, weight and oxygen saturation, clients complete a daily care plan designed to help them better recognize and respond to their heart failure symptoms. The information is sent to a nurse who monitors and supports the client. Biometric reports and any medical concerns are communicated to the client’s family physician. Palliative Care and Multi-morbidity will be added soon.
