The Honeywell HomMed Health Monitoring System is a hospital-grade medical device that collects patient vital signs daily, providing patients with a secure and consistent connection to HHU clinicians. If information collected indicates a need for intervention, or if the user fails to collect vital signs when prompted, appropriate action is taken and members of the care team may be contacted.
The HomMed Health Monitoring System is easy to use, and takes only three minutes to collect patient vital signs from the comfort of home. At a prescribed time each morning a user-friendly voice guides patients through a step-by-step process to measure the following vital signs:
- Blood pressure
- Pulse rate
- Respiratory rate
- Glucose levels
- Pulse oximetery (oxygen level)
- Electrographic heart signals
The monitor can ask up to 50 subjective health-related questions to which the answer is yes or no. These questions help complete the overview of the patient's health status. Instructions and questions can be spoken in 12 different languages, allowing non-English speakers to use the monitor.
Cost of the HomMed system is typically covered by Medicare as a part of the plan of care. HomMed systems may also be leased by patients under a private pay agreement.
