The face of healthcare is changing as the industry modernizes and more patients are receiving home care.
eHealth allows patients to engage with their care from home with remote consultations and reminders about check-ups. It also allows healthcare providers to effectively and quickly send, receive and store patient records as well as make health documents for all patients.
While many employ in-home care providers, many go without. In 2007, 84 percent of home health care patients had at least one limitation from activities of daily living. These can include bathing, dressing, transferring, using the bathroom, and eating. Forty-eight percent were receiving no assistance with their limitation from home health care staff.
Of home healthcare patients, each had an average of 4.2 diagnoses. Among all-listed diagnoses were: essential hypertension, heart disease, diabetes mellitus, osteoarthritis, malignant neoplasm, dementia, and cerebrovascular disease.
