Community Paramedicine offers a suite of virtual health services, including telehealth and Zoom virtual visits; virtual visits with primary care givers facilitated by community paramedics; and remote patient monitoring to support the needs of clients.
Home health monitoring (HHM) is a remote patient service to monitor key health indicators. The service aims to improve patients' knowledge of their chronic disease and how to self-manage their health better.
Community paramedics access an online clinical dashboard that allows greater access to trending vitals for early response. This helps them to identify declines in patients' health, and minimizes acute care visits. The web-based, low tech and no-cost kit is available to patients with heart failure (HF), COPD, multi-morbidity (HF/COPD), diabetes, and those needing palliative supportive care. It augments remote patient monitoring services offered by regional health authorities.
