Through a combination of symptom review, vital sign gathering and education/health coaching aimed at the support of positive behavior change, the Health Buddy System is able to engage patients and provide context to healthcare providers which allows them to intervene before health deterioration occurs. Risk stratification of symptoms/signs, knowledge and behavior supports both early intervention and improved efficiency of data review.

Bosch’s T400 Telehealth System supports multiple daily transmissions of vital sign and symptom data to care providers for patients who require careful monitoring of compliance with care post-hospitalization.
