Connecting Patients at Home with Their Health Care Team

Telehealth by Visiting Nurse Association, Serving Morris and Hunterdon Counties

VNA's Telehealth Program monitors a patient's vital signs and symptoms daily from the comfort of their home and transmits the information directly to their health care team.

Through Telehealth, VNA is able to provide personalized, individual care while allowing patients to live more independently with confidence. With Telehealth, VNA can provide better patient care, assist patients in avoiding hospitalizations and pinpoint the best time for a home visit.
