About Our Sentara Telehealth Program:

Sentara Home Health Services was the first agency in the region to introduce telemedicine into the home.
Our telehealth program equips patients with self-monitoring equipment to measure blood pressure, pulse, weight, and blood glucose. Our telehealth program allows home health nurses located miles away to monitor patients' vital signs while they are in their homes. These frequent checkups have contributed to a decrease in emergency room visits and hospital readmissions.

The telehealth program monitors patients with a variety of medical needs and diseases, including asthma and congestive heart failure The small Philips telemonitor, used by Sentara Home Health Services, gives patients the ability to easily perform important measurements daily and/or as often as they want.

Patients enrolled in the Telehealth Program can also answer clinically reviewed questions specific to their condition with a touch-screen monitor. Within minutes, they electronically transmit this information to a home health nurse - all from the comfort of their home. Through a combination of in-home visits and telehealth encounters, Sentara's Home Health nurses are able to identify worsening conditions early and notify physicians in time to avoid hospital or ER admissions.
