Vital Signs Monitoring
To offer remote patient monitoring to patients within the community to assist with reducing 911 calls, ER visits, and to triage those that would benefit from a home visit.
Timeline: Daily, for 24-weeks
Circle of Care – Patient & Care Team
Community Paramedicine, Care Coordinator
Community patients identified that would benefit from the additional support of remote patient monitoring through the Community Paramedicine (CP) Program
Initial assessment comorbidities, patient history including presence of pacemaker, COPD, CHF, and/or diabetes
Biometric measurement prompts sent to patient based on condition/history eg. BP, pulse oximetry, temperature, glucometer, weight, and overall health and wellness
Biometrics are made available to CP for assessment and triaging
CP is notified of values that are out of range, and patient notification to contact the care team for any urgent questions/issues that are not life-threatening (patient can contact care team directly from platform)
CP are dispatched for a home/virtual visit for symptoms (individualized) identified as abnormal that require immediate attention. CP can record visit/escalation outcome as required
The program is not a substitute for emergency medical care.
If a medical emergency arises at any time, the patient is encouraged to call 911 for Paramedic assistance
Improving the wellbeing of your patients is our number one priority. That is why we offer a wide range of care pathways, to meet individualized health needs.
