Sparta Home Health Administrator Wins 2017 Telehealth Honors
Cheryl Adams, home health administrator at Sparta Community Hospital (Sparta, IL) has received 2017 Telehealth Honors® for providing exceptional patient care in the home using telehealth technology. Adams was recently recognized at the National Association of Home Care and Hospice Annual Conference in Long Beach, CA.
The Telehealth Honors® program recognizes programs as well as individuals that provide outstanding patient care in the home paired with modern telehealth technology.
Using MEDITECH with Ideal Life telehealth devices, Sparta is able to monitor vital sign data collected in the patient’s home and share with providers in real-time.
Their system is helping to encourage compliance and keep more patients out of the hospital and ED, by keeping providers abreast of condition changes and abnormal results--such as rapid weight loss/gain or glucose readings that are too high/low.
