Cutting-Edge Remote Care in Pittsburgh, PA

Remote Patient Monitoring & Telehealth

In essentially every area of healthcare, it’s true that timely information can lead to better health outcomes. Unfortunately, many patients face obstacles to early detection and frequent testing, from mobility issues to work schedules. Seeing real-time health data through at-home monitoring allows your physician to circumvent those obstacles, manage and monitor your chronic conditions, and provide care without the need for travel.

That’s why Pittsburgh Health Partners is proud to be a part of the FocusMD Remote Monitoring Program, which allows patients to share real time health data with their providers and can lead to more tailored care and better health outcomes. We also conduct telehealth appointments with a patient-centric approach, meaning you’ll spend as much one-on-one time with your doctor as you need to be truly cared for, even when receiving remote care.

If you’re ready to start receiving patient-first remote virtual healthcare from the top chronic disease doctors in Pittsburgh, it’s time to get started with Pittsburgh Health Partners. Schedule your first appointment with us today.

How At-Home Monitoring Works

The at-home monitoring devices we prescribe to patients at Pittsburgh Health Partners are easy to use – all you’ll need is a cellular signal. Most areas in Pittsburgh have a sufficient signal to transmit readings. No Wi-Fi or cell phone necessary. This will allow the device to transmit the necessary information.

Your assigned care manager will walk you through the quick initial steps. Once you’ve been set up with your at-home monitoring device, here’s how it works:

  1. Your device will take a reading of whatever data is necessary to monitor your condition.
  2. Your device will transmit that data to your assigned care manager.
  3. Your care manager will share that information directly with your PHP physician, so they can monitor your health remotely.

This program tracks vitals and physiological parameters such as weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels between office visits, ensuring that your physician always knows what’s going on with your health without you needing to travel.
