Innovative chronic patient care

Most people try to avoid going to hospital and would prefer to be treated at home for chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure (CHF) or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, the number of hospital admissions for these patients continues to rise, placing an intolerable strain on health services and leaving patients stuck in the very place they least want to be. German company vitaphone GmbH believes it has the answer in its telemedicine solutions. By monitoring patient vitals remotely, these solutions relieve the strain on hospitals and keep patients in the familiar and reassuring surroundings of their own home.
