Telehomecare Monitoring Platform – Patient
This page is intended for patients who are current or potential users of the Telehomecare Platform. Patients who are being followed in a clinic offering Telehomecare monitoring and who wish to use this service are invited to discuss this with their health professional.
Targeted Clinical Activities
The Telehomecare web platform allows patients to benefit from remote clinical monitoring and education by their healthcare professional. From home, the patient answers questions about their general state and health condition through an online portal. Based on the information provided by the platform, the professional has the opportunity to guide the patient in learning about managing their condition and to intervene with the patient in a timely manner. Personalized information and advice can be provided by messaging or through a health library containing various documents and learning capsules.
This modality offers people with a chronic disease the possibility of gaining autonomy in the management of their disease. Ultimately, it improves quality of life, particularly by reducing emergency room visits and hospitalizations. Although mostly used for the follow-up of chronic diseases, Telehomecare monitoring can be suitable for different levels of care, ranging from acute to end-of-life care.
Telehomecare monitoring is currently deployed for the following conditions:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Gestational diabetes
- Heart Failure
- High Blood Pressure (hypertension)
- High-Risk Pregnancy at Home
- Post-surgical of the aortic valve by Ross Procedure
- Eating Disorders in adolescents
- Palliative Care
- Oncology : Patients on oral anticancer therapy (MAVO)
- COVID-19 Symptoms
- Changes in the CHSLD user’s condition
