THE INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR HEART FAILURE TELEMONITORING
Cardiocom’s TELESCALE is a proven, home telemonitoring system that can reduce acute care hospital admissions for Heart Failure. TELESCALE combines a fully interactive telehealth system with precision electronic scale for proactive management and education from the comfort of your patient’s home.
Everything about the TELESCALE was designed to optimize the patient experience. The sturdy, waist-high electronic display is easy to read, intuitive and features a large keypad with Braille keys for vision impaired patients. Active Voice optimizes the patient’s experience and ease-of-use by asking questions in a clear, friendly voice. Most importantly, the TELESCALE provides instant feedback to the patient, including current and previous day’s weight and target “dry weight” parameters specified by their physician. Combined, this instant feedback helps the patient understand the correlation between their daily weight, medication and food intake.
FEATURES OF THE TELESCALE INCLUDE:
Intelligent, clinical branching logic targets health status questions that are pertinent to the individual patient. To target a patient’s specific symptoms and education requirements, health status questions are generated dynamically based on the patient’s response to previous questions. This sophisticated feature allows the healthcare provider to accurately pinpoint the patient’s symptoms and symptom severity, and provide necessary education.
TELESCALE can be configured for linear or rotational messaging. By scheduling different questions on consecutive days the system adds variety, improves interactivity and promotes adherence.
HIGHER MAXIMUM WEIGHT CAPACITY
To serve a greater number of complex Heart Failure patients, the TELESCALE’S weight capacity goes up to 500 lbs. The TELESCALE’S high weight capacity greatly exceeds most other home monitoring scales, which typically only support up to 330 lbs.
ACCURATE AND CONSISTENT WEIGHT MEASUREMENT
The TELESCALE’S precision electronic scale can provide early detection of as little as 45 ccs of accumulated fluid volume and features linear accuracy to +/-0.1 lb. and consistency to +/-0.1 lb.
TWO-WAY PERSONALIZED MESSAGING
Two-way personalized messaging enables healthcare providers to send unique, customized communications to individual patients or select groups instantly. Messages are entered via the healthcare professional’s desktop and sent directly to the patient. This two-way messaging capability provides custom tailored health assessments, messages and education on a patient-by-patient basis, improving care and clinical outcomes.
Remote programming allows healthcare providers to change all system questions and messages, target and alert levels, and other key communication parameters conveniently from their desktop in real-time to respond to changes in patient health.
