Remote Health Monitoring
Remote health monitoring can harness digital technologies to provide wrap-around care to people in their own homes and reduce the need for hospital admission. For a person with complex health conditions, remote health monitoring can assist in better self-care, self-awareness and confidence to handle common exacerbations at home.
For health care providers, remote health monitoring solutions can provide a consistent, proactive approach to caring for people with the most complex medical and social needs in the community, rather than a reactive one that could end up in hospital admissions.
The introduction of remote health monitoring within HSE services provides multiple potential benefits across a wide range of stakeholders.
Improved accessibility and greater choice.
Ability to manage conditions in home or community environment.
Reduces transport or travel difficulties, carbon footprint, and cost.
Reduces requirement for time off work, school and other responsibilities.
Reduces further burdening to physical or mental health issues i.e. less exposure to infection risk, excessive travel, pain exacerbation.
Improves ability to effectively monitor and triage patients.
Saves time and travel attending clinics at different sites.
Facilitates active patient involvement in care planning.
Enables health care providers to work from their own home when needed, improving work-life balance.
Creates virtual capacity
Aids integrated care
Less hospital admissions
Facilitates early discharge
