The Conway Regional Well@Home program benefits patients who need ongoing monitoring of vital signs such as:
- blood pressure,
- blood glucose levels
Patients that benefit most from this service include:
- patients with cardiovascular disease
- newly-diagnosed diabetics
- patients with renal conditions and other disorders
- medical patients who are non-compliant with medication
- hard-to-manage, homebound patients.
The Well@Home equipment is programmed to remind patients to take their medicine and provides instructions on how to check their blood sugar level, blood pressure, pulse/ox and temperature. A specially designed scale can be connected to the monitor for patient weigh-ins. These readings are sent via telephone lines to the HomeCare office where they are monitored.
Patients also have access to an on-call nurse who can provide triage over the telephone if needed. If necessary the nurse will visit the patient or call an ambulance to take the patient to the hospital.
To find out if Well@Home is right for you or your loved one, please call (501) 329-9377 or 1 (800) 264-9666.
