Remote Connected Care®
Treatment Type 1Stroke care focuses on helping you recover as much function as possible and return to independent living. Remote Patient Monitoring uses state-of-the-art technology to collect patient health data between physician visits. RPM devices allow the monitoring of a patient's vital signs throughout the day, and the results keep track of their weight, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, and heart rate as you start to rehab back to independent living.
Home INR Testing and Monitoring
Treatment Type 2If you are taking blood thinners to avoid clotting, weekly PT/INR self-testing could reduce the risk of your blood clotting by providing reliable, real-time results from home. The mdINR program allows you to check your PT/INR levels at home rather than going to your practitioner's office or a lab. mdINR supplies everything you need for easy self-testing, including: a portable testing device, testing supplies, one-on-one training to help you accurately test your PT/INR value, and highly qualified compassionate clinical specialists who are available 24/7 to answer questions and help you succeed in your treatment.
