Video: Technology helps you heal at home
Michael Levinsky had major heart surgery. But thanks to Virtua Home Care, she can heal in the comforts of her own home. A Virtua nurse and physical therapist visit Michael weekly, and a computerized home monitoring system called Telehealth allows her to monitor her vital signs daily.
Telehealth serves as another set of eyes and ears for the nurse and physician. Michael is able to monitor her weight, blood pressure and pulse oximetry, and the results are sent electronically to Michael’s nurse and physician. With this new technology and weekly visits from Virtua’s nurse and physical therapist, Michael continues on the road to recovery. Watch this video to see Telehealth in action.
