Recovering from COVID-19 at Home
Leveraging HRS’ PatientConnect Mobile, NVNA and Hospice was able to immediately enroll Sue in the telehealth program to begin monitoring her conditions, and was able to provide her with virtual access the same night she was admitted to home health.
Over the last few years, Sue has been admitted to the hospital numerous times due to UTIs and other illnesses which were unrecognized by her family caregivers. Now, with telehealth and RPM, NVNA and Hospice provides an additional layer of support to Sue and her caregivers by helping Sue monitor her medication compliance, symptoms, and vital signs each day with technology.
Both Sue and her husband have used the telehealth platform to expand their knowledge and understanding of Sue’s conditions and to improve their engagement in her care. Through telehealth, Sue and her husband have learned how to avoid symptom flare-ups and have established new routines to ensure Sue’s ongoing health and wellbeing.
