Technologies used include videoconferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications.

  • Improve patient outcomes
  • Increase patient access to healthcare
  • Decrease need for emergent care and / or rehospitalization.

Nurses can be sent to patients’ homes at unscheduled times in addition to regular nursing visits, and based on the daily data, work directly with the patient’s doctor to adjust medication and diet regimens.
