Home Care Systems
Home Care systems are computer -based systems that are used to support care at home. The systems are connected to health provider computers and share information. The home care patient and their healthcare provider can talk and see each other remotely using an Internet connected computer or mobile device. Patient information such as vital signs can be loaded into the system from home automatically using sensors or manually by the onsite Health Care Aid. The healthcare provider can then access the information in minutes instead of days using a paper-based system. Patient care can be adjusted, and new care orders implemented right away. The system can manage medicine and provides record keeping support. The home care system can all also send alerts to providers and family members. Home care systems are giving providers a new way to treat home care patients as well as patients located in rural areas.
