Peace of mind and quality of life via Telemonitoring
Many patients with chronic conditions feel uncertain as to how to cope with their illness. These feelings of uncertainty and insecurity are particularly acute immediately after a hospital stay, during which they have been cared for round-the-clock by medical staff.
Studies show that using telemonitoring to provide a direct link to the doctor can significantly improve care, quality of life and prognosis for patients with chronic illnesses such as heart or kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes or asthma.
Seamless monitoring of the relevant critical data parameters for a given condition improve the diagnostic accuracy and monitoring by the doctor, who is able to recognize symptoms of a deterioration early on and take targeted action. In many cases, this prevents a subsequent hospital admission. Patients feel that are receiving a more tailored service and this empowers them to take more responsibility for dealing with their situation.
