The Cardiac Connection program at Sentara Home Care Services uses two-way video home telehealth to provide comprehensive home care to patients with congestive heart failure. Program results showed an 82% decrease in hospital admissions and a 77% decrease in emergency room visits. In addition, patients felt less depressed, were eating and sleeping better, and felt like less of a burden to their family than before the telehealth visits began.
