Technology at home

The Medically Home® care platform tracks vital signs, including blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature and oxygen saturation levels.

Emergency response

A patient or a patient’s family can reach the care team anytime day or night by simply pushing an emergency button.Your care team will review with you when it is appropriate to call and when it is appropriate to dial 9-1-1.

Intravenous therapy (IV)

Intravenous therapy is a medical technique that delivers liquid directly into a person’s vein. The intravenous route of administration is commonly used for administering medication or rehydration solutions or to provide nutrition to those who cannot consume food or water by mouth.

Laboratory services

When you have a health concern, reliable laboratory tests can help you and your physician make the best possible treatment decisions. While in our virtual hospital, we may conduct lab draws. Those samples are then analyzed in a laboratory with advanced instruments that enable rapid and accurate analysis of clinical and pathology tests. Our laboratory services are fullyaccredited by The Joint Commission.

EKGs

An EKG, also called an ECG or electrocardiogram, is a test that measures the electrical activity of the heartbeat, according to the American Heart Association. With each beat, an electrical impulse (or wave) travels through the heart. This wave causes the muscle to squeeze and pump blood from the heart. A normal heartbeat on ECG will show the timing of the top and lower chambers. This test can help a doctor determine how long the electrical wave takes to pass through the heart to determine if the electrical activity is normal or slow, fast or irregular, or if parts of the heart are too large or are overworked.

Medical imaging

Diagnostic imaging tests such as X-rays and ultrasounds can be conducted in your home and may be needed, depending on your condition.

Vitals monitoring

Vital signs are measurements of the body’s most basic functions. The four main vital signs routinely monitored include body temperature, pulse rate, respiration rate and blood pressure. Vital signs are useful in detecting or monitoring medical problems. With Adventist Health Hospital@Home, vital signs are measured and digitally transmitted to your care team in real time.

Interpreter services

Communication is essential, especially when learning about your own health. If you require an interpreter, please ask your nurse and they will make arrangements for an interpreter.
