The area of home health care is exploding in our nation because of the aging population. Here’s a brand new solution from Grandcare Systems that is eHealth Tech worthy.
Dr. Eric, the Medical Director for Grandcare Systems, joins Health Tech Weekly guest host Chris Montera to talk about this in-home tele health monitoring device. It was initially created for increased socialization opportunities for shut-in populations among the elderly. As the technology was continuously developed, there was an opportunity to begin to collect health and medical data using the system.
Using that information from the patient’s home gives caregivers and medical providers more opportunities to treat problems among the aging population of users before these problems become serious. Even when the patient is not seen in the doctor’s office, they can be safely and effectively monitored from a distance by family and health professionals.
What are your vital signs? Monitor them from anywhere with wireless health assessment tools from Ideal Life. Steve Wheeler from Ideal Life talks with Jamie Davis, the Podmedic about wireless biometric monitoring devices at CES 2013.
Ideal Life has been providing these wireless health care tools to the medical community for many years. Monitoring these devices from a distance helps manage care of patients with chronic illness in a way that doesn’t require frequent hospital re-admissions.
Security Tied to Health Monitoring
Now Ideal Life has partnered with ADT home security solutions to provide these tools to the consumer marketplace. This will give individuals with sick relatives peace of mind, knowing they can check on their loved ones and connect them to medical or nursing services when needed. These wireless biometric monitoring devices are powerful options to provide oversight and offer better patient outcomes in this time of health care reform.
The wireless monitors are available now via prescription from a patient’s health care provider as part of a home care follow-up plan. Direct to consumer options will be available soon through ADT.
