Remote monitoring, also called telemonitoring or telehealth, helps you take charge of a chronic condition such as diabetes or heart failure. This equipment helps you easily track your vital signs at home, for better understanding and management of your health.
Partners HealthCare at Home provides an easy-to-use monitor that you use each day to take your blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen levels, weight and/or blood glucose (sugar) levels. The unit automatically sends your readings over the phone to a nurse in our monitoring office who checks your readings, seven days a week.
If there are any changes or warning signs, such as a sudden rise in blood pressure, the nurse contacts you and also can contact your doctor if necessary.
