New Product Offerings: Telehealth Suite & Fall Pendant
SimplyHome is pleased to announce that we are expanding our product offerings to now include a Telehealth Suite and a fall detection pendant that is compatible with our Personal Emergency Response Systems.
Announcing Telehealth Tools
SimplyHome’s suite of Telehealth wellness tools is designed to offer an improved quality of life that encourages independence and compliance. Now, families and caregivers can access reliable health data to assist loved ones to lower the risk of costly re-hospitalizations while supporting chronic disease management.
Easy-to-use wireless Bluetooth technology sends each reading to a confidential and personalized website. Data may be monitored by call center staff comprised of highly trained personnel who are able to call and triage medical needs with a customer if the data triggers an alert notification. Call center staff documents each encounter and then begins notifying responders in priority order.

By utilizing some of the telehealth tools we offer, we can reduce readmissions and associated costs while elevating patient outcomes— especially during the critical 30-day discharge window.
Some things that might cause a readmission include: complications like infections; inadequate follow up care; poor communication between hospitals, providers and patients; limited physician accessibility due to a growing doctor shortage; and patient constraints such as mobility, finances, time and transportation.
This device is a Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) pendant that monitors falls more accurately by reducing the amount of false alarms. The LED light on the device begins to flash slowly when a fall is detected, speeds up as it becomes more sure a fall has been detected and then sends a signal to the PERS. This product ensures keeping your loved one safe and is able to get help to them after a fall occurs.
The Importance of Monitoring for Falls
The Center for Disease Control says that each year 2.5 million elderly people are treated in the emergency department for fall injuries. Since falling once more than doubles the odds of falling again, it is vital that falls are being monitored in the home.
Our new products address concerns such as falls and chronic disease management. We encourage you to take a proactive approach to enhance independence for years to come.
