People with a chronic disease, such as heart failure, diabetes, hypertension and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can manage their health – outside of the doctor’s office – thanks to Ballad Health’s remote patient monitoring (telehealth) program.
Telehealth enables patients to track vital signs while remaining at home.
And their providers can receive timely information about their health status and intervene as quickly as possible when problems arise. This helps avoid unnecessary hospitalization.
A proven track record
Through our home care and telehealth programs, Ballad Health has record of success:
In fact, we’ve reduced re-hospitalizations of congestive heart failure patients to 6%.
Telehealth services offered at Ballad Health
We offer around-the-clock monitoring for:
- Blood glucose levels
- Blood oxygen levels (pulse oximetry)
- Blood pressure and pulse
- Body weight
- ECG heart rhythm
We teach patients the importance of monitoring their vital signs through an innovative two-step program.
We start by electronically monitoring patient vitals and providing daily education. As patients progress, we teach them to monitor their vital signs independently, and we teach them the signs and symptoms that need early intervention.
