CAPROCK HOME HEALTH SERVICES, INC. has developed a modern service delivery model through our advancement in Point of Care software, mobile technology and telemedicine services. Our newest advancement in telemedicine is the addition of Honeywell Hommed telemonitors. This technology allow us to utilize a telehealth monitor system to provide immediate vital information relevant to a patients’ health status EACH and EVERY DAY, or several times a day, to better manage their care.

Telemonitoring is a relatively new use of technology to enhance the delivery of home health care services. Our Telemonitoring Program includes telemonitoring and phone monitoring and will be used in combination with home visits.

WHO QUALIFIES? 

PATIENT SELECTION CRITERIA INCLUDE:

TELEMONITORING 

Each telehealth monitor is customized to the individual patient according to the physician care plan. The monitoring can include blood pressure, pulse, weight, and pulse oximetry. Our equipment also has a disease management component that prompts the client to answer customized questions specific to their health condition. The data is automatically transmitted to our agency for clinical review and trending. As the physician, you can choose to have the patient take their vital signs and answer the questions once a day or several times a day.

GOAL 

To improve patient outcomes and maintain quality patient care, facilitate recovery and reduce hospital readmissions.

WHAT DOES IT COST THE PATIENT? 

There is no cost to Medicare and Medicaid eligible patients who are referred for home health care services and meet the selection criteria. Commercial insurance and private patient’s costs will be determined upon admission.

Telemonitoring has enhanced our agency’s capability to more accurately track our patients’ health as frequently as prescribed. This technology allows us to address health problems as they start to occur, and prevent an event that may require a more serious intervention.
