At MaineHealth Care at Home, we believe in integrating telehealth technology with expert clinical care will greatly improve the health and independence of our patients. We are proud to offer a telehealth program that helps patients manage their health and stay connected to health service providers through wireless devices, including tablets and cellular phones.
Upon admission into the Telehealth Program, patients will be assessed for their clinical needs and provided with a care plan. Through our ClinicianConnect Portal, patients will be immediately enrolled into the workflow of our specially-trained telehealth nurses.
Patients will can utilize one of the following solutions to best support their needs:
Through a 4G-enable touchscreen tablet and full suite of peripheral devices, patients presenting with conditions including COPD, CHF, hypertension, and others will be able to connect with skilled nursing services. Through the technology, nurses will monitor the patient’s vital signs, receive alerts in the case of abnormal readings, and consult with the patient on an as-needed basis.
This bring-your-own-device solution allows patients, specifically those at a lower acuity level, to utilize an application through their own device to access the ClinicianConnect platform. Through this, along with any biometric monitoring equipment that is available to the patient, the telehealth nurses will be able to have live, face-to-face interactions with the patient.
Capabilities and Benefits
In addition to the live, face-to-face feature that separates this service from many other, the telehealth platform also allows for the capture of images, communication via text and email, and medical education and information available 24/7.
For the patient, this monitoring can be an invaluable piece to the overall care plan. Our nurses can monitor medication compliance, give feedback on healthy behaviors, identify symptoms of new or worsening conditions, and connect patients with other community resources and health providers as necessary.
