Home Care

University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center Offers Compassionate and Technologically Advanced Home Care Services

UH Elyria Medical Center Home Care

Following a patient’s hospital stay or a change in his or her health condition while at home, professional medical care is vital to helping an individual recover and get back on his or her feet again. At UH Elyria Medical Center, our home care services can also help patients learn to live with their illness or disability. Our goal is to help individuals regain their independence by becoming self-sufficient and maintaining optimum health.

We offer a wide array of home care services, including:

Telemonitoring Leads to Fewer Emergency Visits

UH Elyria Medical Center Home Care, along with Valued Relationships, Inc. (VRI), assists patients to easily monitor their health and vital signs with a home telemonitoring unit called HealthPal. The HealthPal device is used as part of a comprehensive disease management program, which monitors the patient’s vital signs and symptoms, then sends the information to the home care nurse provider. This early warning system enables the nurse to resolve small problems before they escalate, leading to fewer emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

Patients participating in this disease management program have experienced:

  • 33 percent reduction in ER visits
  • 50 percent reduction of re-hospitalizations for congestive heart failure (CHF) management
  • Increased compliance with treatment program
  • Improved quality of life
