Chronic Care Management & Remote Monitoring: A Combined Approach

Smith County Memorial Hospital has joined forces with The University of Kansas Health Systems to offer an innovative solution for individuals struggling with chronic conditions. The Remote Patient Monitoring Program is a cost-effective and efficient way for patients to manage their health without leaving the comfort of their own homes.

Using a user-friendly bluetooth device, patients can easily monitor their vital health readings, including blood pressure, glucose levels, oxygen levels, and more. The device is highly accurate, providing healthcare providers with precise data to evaluate a patient’s health condition more effectively. The best part is that the program is covered by Medicare at little to no cost, making it accessible to those who may have limited financial resources.

The Remote Patient Monitoring Program is especially beneficial for individuals with chronic conditions that are difficult to manage, such as those who take multiple medications, have transportation limitations, or limited help at home. This program empowers patients by enabling them to maximize their functionality while staying safe at home. With the seven-day-a-week tracking service, healthcare providers can assess a patient’s treatment plan more effectively, ensuring they receive personalized care that meets their unique needs.

Individuals with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart failure, hypertension, hypotension, and certain lung conditions can benefit greatly from the Remote Patient Monitoring Program. This program provides them with the tools they need to manage their conditions better, leading to a more accessible and fulfilling life. If you are interested in the program, we encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider for more information.

About Us

Compassionate Care

“Our team is always striving to exceed expectations. While they may not see as many patients as facilities in urban areas, our providers must be trained to handle a multitude of situations and care for a diverse population. I’m extremely proud of the team at SCMH for their excellence in care and their compassion for our patient community,” Allen Van Driel, CEO.
