Christian Care Home Health
Thanks to the state of the art technology, provided through our partnership with Honeywell HomMed, patients on Christian Care Home Health Services will be given the opportunity to have daily check-ups in their homes. Christian Care Home Health is the exclusive provider of the Honeywell HomMed system to collect patients’ vital signs on a daily basis. With the HomMed system, Christian Care Home Health puts hospital grade monitors in patient’s homes to gather clinical data regarding trends in their health status.
Honeywell HomMed units are small and take up the same amount of space of your bedside alarm clock. Each patient placed on a HomMed monitor, will have individual established parameters established by your personal physician. The HomMed units are setup by trained technicians that will be responsible for setup, initial teaching and removal at discharge. Data is collected daily and transmitted to the Christian Care Home offices where a professional nurse individually reviews each clients results. Reports are available to family members and physicians by fax and email. Family members and physicians can also with HomMed’s new feature of a web-portal access the clients results via the web.
How Does It Work?
Honeywell HomMed units are small. They take up about as much space as an alarm clock. A trained technician from Christian Care Home Health will setup the unit in the patient’s home and provide training in its use. The HomMed unit requires a standard electrical outlet and a telephone jack. In those cases were a phone jack is not available, we can provide a cell phone card, however on a limited basis. The Honeywell HomMed unit is programmed with many settings and health questions the physician recommends.
At the same time each day, a voice prompt will instruct the patient to take vital signs, such as weight, blood pressure, pulse, oxygen saturation, and temperature. The voice guides the patient step-by-step through the process of pushing one of three color coded buttons that enable the system to collect vital signs data.
Following the collection of vital signs the system will ask a series of questions that the physician has provided. It takes only 3 minutes a day and is easy to do!
Once all the data has been collected the Honeywell HomMed system transmits the data to a clinician at Christian Care Home Health who reviews the data. If there are any readings out of the ordinary, the clinician will contact the client. If any vital signs fall outside of the recommended parameters set by your physician, the HomMed unit will signal our clinicians and alert them to the client’s condition.
Christian Care Home Health will provide each client’s physician weekly or monthly graphs of their vital signs unless otherwise indicated by the physician. These reports allow the physician to see subtle changes in conditions and schedule follow up office visits as needed.
