Saad has introduced telemonitoring to its Saad Advantage lineup.
What is Telemonitoring?
Telemonitoring is a medical practice that involves remotely monitoring patients who are not at the same location as the health care provider. Telemonitoring is a convenient way for patients to avoid travel and to perform some of the more basic work of healthcare for themselves.
Why do we use it?
Better patient care
Telemonitoring allows Saad Healthcare to monitor our patients at any time. This gives us the ability to team with our patient and his/her doctor to make the best decisions about treatment based on real time information similar to what would be revealed during an on-site appointment. We want our patients to know that if we can not physically be in their home; we want to be connected through telemonitoring and our 24/7 on call nursing staff to make sure we take care of our patients.
Why is it useful to our patients?
Peace of mind
Telemonitoring is useful to patients because they can receive health care provider feedback on their vital statistics much more often then they otherwise might. Also, because the patient is more involved in his or her own treatment, the patient will become more aware of his or her vital statistics and possibly gain a better sense of what affects these statistics and how the statistics in turn affect how he or she feels.
Telemonitoring is common for patients with diabetes or hypertension. These patients can take advantage of regular vital sign monitoring and regular provider feedback without having to commute to the health care provider. Telemonitoring is particularly effective for people with diabetes and hypertension, because it is extremely important for the vital statistics of such patients to be consistently observed.
