VitelMed is especially suited to the chronically ill, the elderly, or patients residing in remote rural settings, to aid in post-operative care and the rehabilitation stages.
Patients benefit from recovering at home, and the security of being able to instantly reach their health professional, and family and friends, instantly. Fewer hospital and post-operative surgery visits, and shorter consults, mean reduced costs for both health provider and patient.
VitelMed allows patients to call, receive calls and medication reminders, and interact with their primary and other medical caregivers as well as family and friends.
Through a common USB connection, the VitelMed unit supports many types of low-cost medical monitoring devices which can feed real time results through to the medical team.
The VitelMed service also allows a doctor to access a patient’s record and complete medical files in real time. Data collected by the unit is automatically added to the patient’s history file.
Help recovery times and avoid further complications
VitelMed enables patients to take their own vital health measurements, for example lung capacity, blood sugars and blood pressure. These measurements are assessed remotely by nurses so medical teams can detect any changes before they become serious and the patient requires hospitalisation. This early detection/prevention can mean recovery is faster and more complete.
Increases independence and understanding
Patients generally feel safer and more comfortable at home, and our growing, aging population is becoming increasingly independent, preferring to stay out of aged care institutions as long as possible. The VitelMed system is an ideal solution to constantly monitor a patient’s condition while they recover at home.
VitelMed also helps patients understand and manage their condition through close involvement in the delivery of care such as taking their own vital health measurements.
Operating on normal broadband and capable of utilising all common communication protocols, the VitelMed home-based system can integrate with alarm monitoring (via the TV), video conferencing, and even the ordering of meals on wheels, all via the easy to use VitelMed remote.
VitelMed can be applied to the monitoring and management of patients with disorders like Diabetes, Asthma, Congestive heart failure and psychological impediments as well as high risk pregnancies and many others.
