Focused Health Solutions announced that it has selected Cardiocom Commander Telehealth System to provide advanced home telehealth technology to patients with chronic illness.

Cardiocom’s telehealth system proactively manages and motivates the members towards self care with interactive Health Check and collection of vital signs including: weight, blood pressure, glucose and heart rate. Through standard phone line or cellular connection, the information will be immediately transmitted to the participant’s nurse coach at Focused Health Solutions Deerfield, IL based clinical nurse call center. The participant’s nurse coach reviews the information with the participant during their scheduled condition management education calls throughout the year.

“The Cardiocom System is a key advanced home care technology tool that proactively ensures coordinated care,” says Charlene Bonvissuto, a registered nurse and President and Chief Executive Officer at Focused Health. “We believe that cost-effective monitoring of vital signs, symptoms and compliance with evidence-based guidelines is a fundamental tool in the condition management process.”
