Family history of a heart condition or a personal diagnosis can send your mind spinning. Fortunately, there are ways you can manage your heart condition to keep it under control! Three lifestyle changes to implement include:
- Manage your stress. Less is best!
- Get ample amounts of exercise.
- Maintain a balanced diet for your health needs.
Implementing these three lifestyle changes can drastically improve your help! But, we understand that you want extra peace of mind by partnering with us. That’s why we created our remote care monitoring service as well as our chronic care management service. With these services in place, our team can monitor your health data and you can enjoy peace of mind. Get to know more about this service below.
Essential Services – Remote Care Monitoring & Chronic Care Management
Middle Georgia Heart’s remote care monitoring service was created for our patients who need help monitoring their blood pressure or weight. These two factors are vital for health, but don’t necessarily require a trip to the doctor’s office for monitoring. That’s where remote care monitoring comes in! After enrolling in the program, we will send you the equipment you need (the SmartHub device, scale, and/or blood pressure cuff) to monitor your health.
From the comfort of your home, we can monitor your health via this equipment. The data is sent directly to us – not a third party! If we notice anything alarming in the data, we will reach out to you. You will also have a direct phone number for the medical professional in charge of your case.
If you have any of the following heart conditions, you may be eligible for remote care monitoring:
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Congestive heart failure
- Coronary artery disease
What’s the difference between remote care monitoring and chronic care management?
Remote care monitoring is for patients who have one ailment while chronic care management is for patients who have 2+ ailments. Our cardiology consultants at Middle Georgia Heart are happy to offer this service to our patients. We are here for you and want to help you achieve the best heart health possible.
