Monitoring and real-time integration of clinical parameters in patient record

The patient is provided a Bluetooth-enabled weighing machine, SpO2 monitor, BP monitor and/or a six-parameter full monitor, depending on the requirement.

The patient and their family are educated on the use of these devices to record readings, which would then seamlessly get integrated into their cloud-based health record through their smart-phone. Some of the parameters that will be recorded are:

  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar – as indicated
  • Urine albumin
  • EKG – as required
  • Heart rate – as required
  • SpO2 – as required
  • Fetal heart monitoring

In case of any alarm based on the treating doctor’s advice, the following courses of action are available:

  • Nurse will guide the patient’s family on immediate action to be taken as per documented doctor’s advice
  • Nurse will call the treating doctor and ask for further course of treatment (if any)
  • Patient can book a video consultation with the treating doctor
  • Patient can be advised physical consultation/admission as per doctor’s orders

Weight monitoring



Adherence to medication

Vitals monitoring

Validation and Resources

There is a large body of research that indicates that monitoring of high-risk pregnancy patients in their
homes is beneficial to the patients and their family. The following is one of the studies:

An article published in PubMed (The US national Library of Medicine) titled “Telemedicine: cost-effective management of high-risk pregnancy” compared two groups of women one with telemedicine support and the other as per conventional treatment and came up with the following findings:

The telemedicine group had a significantly later mean gestational age at delivery (38.2 +/- 1.4 vs. 35.3 +/- 3.8)
Higher mean birth weight (3224 +/- 588 vs. 2554 +/- 911)
