Remote Care for Seniors

Telemedicine Solutions for Seniors

Remote Care for Seniors allows constant monitoring of a patient’s principal life parameters by paramedics, and consultations about their state of health and well-being in their advanced years, with treatment provided by a general practitioner, physiotherapist, dietitian, psychologist or other medical specialist. Examinations can be performed by the patients themselves but also by their caregiver or medical staff, at home (for a single patient), in a nursing home, or at a center catering many patients (services dedicated to groups of examined patients). Based on telemetric results, the assigned doctor can contact the patient, order a home visit, or call the emergency ambulance service.
