June 22, 2009 – Englewood Hospital Home Health and Hospice Services said it entered into a business relationship with Cardiocom to provide advanced home telehealth technology to patients with chronic illnesses.
Cardiocom's telehealth system provides an interactive opportunity to proactively manage patient care. Cardio-respiratory patients use the Cardiocom Commander Telehealth System to communicate their vital signs to the agency where an Englewood Hospital Home Health nurse monitors them. The Commander Home Telemonitoring System guides the patient through an interactive health check and collection of vital signs including weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate. This information then travels immediately through a standard phone line to the patient's caregiver for review.
"The Cardiocom System is a key tool that proactively ensures coordinated care from a hospital, nursing home or clinic to the patient's home," said Katherine Clark, MSN, RN, BC and manager of the telemedicine department.
