Remote patient monitoring

Roper St. Francis Home Health uses remote patient monitoring technology to keep you stable and identify changes in your condition. With this unique program, either a monitor is placed in your home or you can utilize a mobile app with your own equipment (thermometer, pulse oximetry, blood pressure machine, etc.) to electronically transmit your health data to our home health nurses and your doctor. Our remote patient monitoring program has successfully reduced emergent care visits and re-hospitalizations by rapidly detecting and responding to changes in conditions. The programs allows you to check blood pressure, pulse, respiration, temperature, pulse oximetry, weights and blood glucose. Additionally, you will be asked questions about your condition and can utilize the programs to communicate with your home health team.
