Home Medical Monitoring Service
Fairview Home Care’s telemonitoring services allow you to monitor your health from the convenience of home. You can monitor your weight, blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels and oxygen readings.
It’s as easy as slipping your finger into a small cuff or standing on a scale. With a push of a button, the data is automatically sent to a Fairview Home Care nurse. If your results are concerning, a nurse will contact you or your physician. Telemonitoring can reduce the need for hospitalization. The information can help your physician make decisions about medication changes, clinic visits or lab tests.
