United HomeCare Services Named Winner of 2010 Caregiver Friendly Award

April 28, 2010
MIAMI, Fla. –  United HomeCare Services (UHCS), the largest home health agency in South Florida, was named winner of the Today’s Caregiver magazine 2010 Caregiver Friendly Award in the service category. The Caregiver Friendly Awards are designed to celebrate products, services, books and media created with the needs of caregivers in mind. UHCS was recognized for its TeleHealth Monitoring Services program, which monitors a patient’s chronic health conditions remotely from the home, thereby reducing the need for hospitalization.

Working in partnership with major medical equipment providers, United HomeCare Services is able to provide clients with the TeleHealth system for wireless remote daily monitoring of vital signs at no additional cost for clients that qualify for the program.  The program helps caregivers closely monitor people with chronic conditions such as cardiac diseases, high blood pressure, pulmonary disease, diabetic diseases, and complex medical problems. A central station nurse triages the information, communicating with physicians and clients. The program empowers clients and family members as well as care providers by allowing them to monitoring information online. 

 “We are honored that our TeleHealth program has been recognized by experts at this national magazine dedicated to providing information, advice and support specifically for family and professional caregivers,” said José Fox, president and chief executive officer of United HomeCare Services. 

Through innovative programs such as TeleHealth Monitoring Services, UHCS continues to demonstrate cost-effective, innovative approaches to supporting the health care needs of clients with chronic disease so that they may maintain their independence and wellness.
