- Tele-health Services: We offer the “Health Buddy” Tele-health system – a remote disease management monitoring solution which utilizes a small, easy-to-use, in-home communication device to connect clinicians and patients with chronic diseases on a daily basis. The system serves as the interface between patients at home and York Hospital Home Care providers when they are not present in the patient’s home and can signal situations that need intervention. Staff monitor patient sessions and relay information so as to be able to proactively intervene before a patient’s condition worsens. This can prevent unnecessary emergency visits to the hospital and doctors’ offices, or other costly medical venues.
