Health Acces Santé, a private home and nursing care company in Beaconsfield, Que.,  has  launched Telehealth Access Centre powered by SaskTel’s LifeStat Remote Monitoring and Health Management service.

 

Managed by a staff of nurses and a dietician, the centre offers remote monitoring services and education for clients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and congestive heart failure.

 

Using SaskTel’s LifeStat service, clients are able to monitor their health condition through the collection of data such as blood pressure, blood glucose and weight in the comfort of their home or place of business.

 

These readings are then wirelessly transmitted using Bluetooth technology to a SaskTel data centre allowing authorized health care professionals to immediately review client data and provide appropriate follow-up by telephone.
