Mercy Home Care is always looking for new ways to avoid re-hospitalization. We are pleased to offer a telehealth program designed to monitor a patient's weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and pulse. This is ordered by a physician and the data is monitored daily by a Registered Nurse.
The telehealth unit is a small, wireless, easy-to-use, in-home communication tool that links information about the patient's condition to the healthcare provider - right from the comfort of patient's own home.
This special program is focusing on congestive heart failure patients and provided to Mercy Home Care patients as part of their Medicare benefit. All electronic health information is kept secure and confidential.
For more complete information about this new program, or to have telehealth installed, please call Mercy Home Care at 641-428-6444 or 800-274-5285.
