Home Health Monitoring

Home health monitoring is the use of IT and telecommunications to monitor the health of patients in their homes and to help ensure that appropriate action is taken. Patients are provided devices that measure vital signs, such as blood pressure, glucose level, pulse, blood oxygen level and weight, and then transmit the data to clinicians. Other devices are used for messaging — gathering information from patients on their symptoms, cognitive state and behavior, and sending them information and advice.
