Remote Patient Monitoring
My Health Advocate Program
Memorial Hermann remains a pioneer in health care, continually looking into new and innovative ways to bring our patients the most advanced care at their convenience. Memorial Hermann’s My Health Advocate is a multi-channel patient monitoring program. Through the use of telephonic devices, customized home care kits, and smart phones Memorial Hermann healthcare providers are able to monitor patient progress remotely, make recommendations and communicate with the patient and other members of the healthcare team. Generally lower-risk patients are monitored through smart phones and require weekly surveillance, higher-risk patients are monitored daily through home care kits or telephonically.
How does it work?
Real-time healthcare data from the monitoring channels is reviewed by a Memorial Hermann Registered Nurse who then provides suggestions and education to patients. By using timely healthcare data nurses can detect early changes in a patient’s health condition and can coordinate a patient transfer to an appropriate level of care. The earlier an issue is detected the better the patient outcomes allowing patients to receive early medical intervention/treatment allowing them to more quickly return to their home setting. *Please note this is not an emergency response system. The program is offered seven-days-a-week from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m.
