For patients with congestive heart failure, Sentara Home Care offers an innovative telehealth option. The patient's home is equipped with wireless equipment that gives patients the ability to easily perform important measurements like oxygenation, blood pressure, pulse, temperature, blood glucose and weight.

Patients answer clinically reviewed questions specific to their condition on a touch-screen monitor. Within minutes, this information is electronically transmitted to a home care nurse. The unit also allows Sentara’s home care nurses and patients to see and hear each other in real time for virtual visits. Through a combination of in-home visits and telehealth encounters, nurses can identify worsening conditions early and notify physicians in time to avert hospital or ER admissions.

Another advanced technology used in treating patients with congestive heart failure is the ZOE™ fluid status monitor.
