Telehealth Monitoring

Telehealth monitoring is the use of communication technology to deliver medical information through a standard telephone line. This allows the patient’s current health status, symptoms and activities to be monitored on a daily basis by a Registered Nurse.

The advantages of telehealth monitoring includes improved clinical outcomes, improved utilization rates, improved patient safety and a reduction in rehospitalization rates. In fact, Alegent Health at Home has one of the lowest patient re hospitalization rates in the nation (click here to view our current quality scores).

Patients who benefit most from telehealth monitoring include patients with chronic health conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or congestive heart failure (CHF).
