The Home Health Monitor from VitTelCare has been chosen by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for in-home management of patients.
VA has been using this monitor since the year 2004, and the new contract is an extension of their relationship with ViTelCare. This contract was won by ViTelCare after a competitive bidding and procurement process.
Marie Mann, the national government sales director at ViTelcare expressed that the new contract is symbolic of the benefits that healthcare systems get out of the Home Health Care Monitor. She added that ViTel care is continuously striving to improve the link between patients and health care professionals. She claimed that health care providers were able to offer timely assistance to the patients before their condition becomes critical with the help of the telehealth monitoring system from ViTelCare offering quality care and lessening costs.
The T400 Home Health Monitoring System from ViTelCare has been used for almost five years now. It effectively monitors patients suffering from congestive heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), diabetes etc. The health monitor alerts the health care provider whenever an abnormality is detected in the vital statistics of the patient. The T400 monitor has multiple functions like transmitting the data to the provider at regular intervals in a day and answering the patient’s queries through the touch interface. Emergency situations are avoided due to constant monitoring and transmission of data to the health care provider. The T400 comes with a host of disease management programs, which can easily be modified to suit the individual’s healthcare needs.
