Expansion of in-home health monitoring systems (US & UK)

Greater Rochester Health Foundation has announced an award of more than a half million dollars to Visiting Nurse Service of Rochester and Monroe County towards an AMC telehealth system. Grant to boost in-home patient monitoring for Visiting Nurse Service.

And in Yorkshire, UK, Scarborough Hospital has announced the purchase of 100 telehealth systems. £115k help for heart patients at home. As one grateful service user is reported as saying, he was “phoning for emergency help up to once a week at some times and was a regular at A&E…But since using telehealth, I haven’t been in hospital once – it’s like a weight’s been lifted off my shoulders.”
