Wound Care & TeleHealth: High-Quality Care, Anywhere

Physician Connection

Fall 2012

For patients needing surgery for pressure sores or other conditions, the post-operative recovery process can often require close medical attention for up to a month or more. Previously, that time had to be spent in a traditional hospital setting, but today the RGHS Hill Haven affiliate is an ideal setting for longer-term needs such as this – thanks to the clinical integration between Hill Haven and the rest of Rochester General Health System, and the use of TeleHealth technology.

The Hill Haven rehab and nursing teams provide specialized, high-quality wound care rehabilitation services in updated, comfortable and clinically state-of-the-art settings. And with digital TeleHealth technology – in which physicians at Rochester General Hospital can inspect wound sites and answer patient questions via a sophisticated two-way video / telemetry link – patients can receive all the expert medical attention they need, without the discomfort of travel for required follow-up appointments.

By dedicating the full resources of RGHS to patients’ needs, Hill Haven provides true continuity of care in a comfortable, homelike environment. For more information about how TeleHealth capabilities can benefit your patients, contact the RGHS Office of TeleHealth at 315-359-2820.
