How Does VitalSight Work?
VitalSight provides a proactive approach to healthcare.
With VitalSight, physicians can remotely monitor their patient’s health. This program is designed to allow patients the ability to take in-home blood pressure and/or weight measurements. Physicians are able to order and receive patient data directly from their electronic medical records (EMR). These insights allow clinicians the ability to provide proactive and corrective treatment during non-critical or critical moments.
VitalSight provides the flexibility for physicians to determine which devices should be sent to a patient’s home that will contain some or all of the following items:
What are these items for?
- Blood pressure monitors: Blood pressure readings provides one of the best insights into real-time heart and overall health information. OMRON monitors are the #1 doctor and pharmacist recommended brand for home use, so you can be confident in the readings.
- Body weight scales: Monitoring weight regularly can uncover insights about heart health and body composition can help predict cardiovascular disease.
- Data hub: The hub allows patient data to flow directly into an EMR system.
Is VitalSight Covered by Insurance?
During your visit to a participating doctor, eligible patients may be easily enrolled in minutes via the Electronic Medical Record System, at zero cost to the patient, depending on coverage.
Discover how impactful VitalSight has been for Nora and her family:
We are so grateful for this new technology. It has provided us with a peace of mind we didn’t even know we needed. My grandfather is in his nineties and suffers from heart and kidney issues that put his health at risk. His mobility is limited so frequent visits to his doctor would be physically exhausting. We were relying on monthly checkups to monitor his condition. Now, he has the ability to essentially “check in” every day with his health care provider from the comfort of home. The best part is the ease of use. All we have to do is have him step on the scale and use the blood pressure monitor a couple of times a day. The information is automatically sent to his doctor. With this set up, we can all be proactive about adjusting his medications or seeking treatment if something is wrong. It helps bridge the gap between checkups and every day life and we are so glad to have this tool while we work to maintain my grandfather’s health and quality of life.
