Technology advances in Home Care have been a driving factor in properly “aging in place.”

As healthcare providers and insurers face increasing pressure to provide better care while lowering costs, more are offering preventative medical services and closer oversight to in-home care patients with chronic diseases. The goal is to prevent potentially serious conditions that can result in a hospital stay — the most expensive type of healthcare.

These technology advances include the creation of databases and mobile technologies that enable home health services professionals to capture accurate, real-time patient data and instantly share that data with case managers, physicians and other members of the care team. New home healthcare technologies are improving patients’ and caregivers’ ability to monitor patients within their homes, enabling them to keep a closer eye on their daily health and eliminate the stress that going to the doctor can create.

Nowadays, firms like Safe Homecare use programs like “Family Room,” – an online tool where caregivers and families of patients can log in daily and can schedule/edit events, schedule doctor appointments, make changes to medications, and set task reminders, which is really important.

Even some mobile apps can offers its own home health services, including routine health screenings and patient education. In an effort to enhance and improve in-home care for patients with chronic conditions, some providers use technology that would allow its health workers to collect patient data that could be easily and quickly shared with care managers and other medical team members.

The goal was to provide coordinated, preventative treatment and interventions that would result in better outcomes for patients and more effective chronic disease management.

The program also has improved job satisfaction for home health aides and care managers because it enables them to provide better care for patients with special medical needs.
