In addition to specialized programs, AmeriCare has partnered with Honeywell HomMed to provide patients with telehealth monitors.

A video component allows real time visual and audio interactions with the physician, the patient and the home care nurse. This provides accurate timely exchange of information. These devices not only provide patients with a sense of security knowing their clinicians are monitoring their health status daily, but also reduce preventable ER visits and hospitalizations.
