What is the significance of Thursday afternoon at 2:30?

When it comes to our patients' health, we know that our care and focus is needed seven days a week. Using the conventional pre-planned nursing schedule alone does not provide the time and attention needed to fully care for a patient. Symptoms can arise at any moment, and with many conditions, a matter of hours can mean the difference between staying home or going to the hospital. A patient could be doing just fine during a scheduled visit, only to become symptomatic when the nurse walks out the door. So what is the significance of a home visit at 2:30 on Thursday afternoon? It could be minimal, or it could be drastic. Now HomeCall has the means to know each and every day.

The Honeywell HomMed Home Monitoring System provides users the best of both worlds: the comfort and independence of staying at home and the security of daily monitoring and proper medical attention.

The monitor works by recording a number of vital signs, including:

  • Weight

  • Heart Rate

  • Blood Pressure

  • Oxygen Saturation

  • Temperature

A number of peripherals can also be added to better customize the monitor to an individual's specific condition:

  • PT/INR

  • Glucose Meter

  • Spirometer

  • Peak Flow

  • ECG

The benefits of the Honeywell HomMed monitor can be effectively applied to almost any condition, including:

  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

  • Diabetes

  • Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)

  • Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

A voice prompts the patient to begin taking his or her vital signs and continues to guide the patient throughout the entire process. The patient is then asked questions specific to his or her condition. When the process is complete, the monitor takes care of the rest. The results are immediately sent to our nurses station where they are analyzed by our professional nursing staff. Data trends are observed, and any developing symptoms can be identified much quicker than relying on just a pre-planned visitation schedule. The proper treatment can then be administered promptly and effectively. Sometimes hours can mean the difference between staying at home and a costly trip to the ER or hospital.

What is the significance of Thursday afternoon at 2:30? Maybe not much at all. What is the significance of daily home monitoring? Our eyes on your health everyday. Symptoms don't follow a pre-planned visitation schedule, so why should we rely on one?
