Why Is Home Care Important?
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. We 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.
Cutting Edge Technologies Optimize the Quality of Care You Receive at Home.
In-home nurses and therapists use laptop computers to record your medical condition and enter information into your secure, electronic medical record. University Hospitals nurses, physicians, therapists and pharmacists can access and monitor pertinent clinical information remotely and real-time on our UH network. In addition, UH Home Care can place telemonitoring equipment in your home which measures blood pressure, oxygen levels, blood glucose levels, weight, and medication compliance etc. and transmits the information back to your health care providers for daily monitoring and peace of mind.
