The goal for most patients who are recovering from an illness or living with a chronic disease is to maintain the highest quality of life possible. Technological developments are constantly providing new systems and medication that allow people to live longer and happier lives. Another benefit is that it can bring services to the patient, rather than the patient having to travel to the service. This is especially good for seniors, who often struggle with transport. Intravenous infusion technology, radiography, ultrasound, feeding pumps, ventilators, pulse oximeters, hand held blood analysis devices and other technologies have revolutionized the scope of home health care.
Our HealthNow Connect® service gives you access to call a trained professional 24/7, all with the touch of a button. This unique technology can be used in emergencies or anytime you have a question or concern.
Medication management systems are essential in making sure you receive the correct treatment. Medication schedules can be strict and deviation from them can have severe results. One of the primary reasons for people being readmitted to hospital is because they take their medication incorrectly.
Telehealth uses communication technology to give healthcare, health education and health administration over long distances. Videoconferencing, the internet, streaming media, store-and-forward imaging, terrestrial and wireless communications are all essential to modern healthcare.
These systems can help people get help quickly if they have an accident or a health issue. They are particularly useful for those who live alone, so that if something happens, they don’t face hours or days of suffering before they receive help.
