For people unable to regularly visit the doctor or are living in rural, remote or regional areas, telehealth can ensure you have access to nursing support to check your daily health signs from the comfort of your home.
Knowing your own vitals is important in managing chronic conditions and keeping you living independently in your home. After consultation with your GP, your needs will be assessed and then we install the Telehealth equipment in your home. After this is installed, we will show you how easy it is to use each device and by simply touching a button, send the information to our Registered Nurses.
Your Nurse will store and monitor your information and should there be any irregularity or changes, we can act on it in conjunction with your own doctors.
- Learn how to monitor vital signs from home.
- Remotely monitored by registered nurses.
- Prevent hospital admissions.
As part of our services our Registered Nurses will monitor your health signs every day, remotely from their clinics, using Telehealth; a simple one touch electronic device that you are provided.
Our Registered Nurses are able to monitor and record:
- Weight variations
- Blood pressure
- Blood sugar readings
- Lung capacity
- And symptoms of other chronic conditions.
- You need to be aged over 65 or over 50 for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders.
