Chronic Care Management
Managing chronic conditions at home can be a challenge for many patients. If not properly controlled, patients with chronic conditions such as Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) or COPD may make repeated trips to the emergency department or have several avoidable hospital readmissions.
By combining our skilled nursing and therapy with home monitoring and education, patients can take better control of their health and safely maintain their independence at home.
Resources for chronic care management include:
Our Joint Replacement Care program is designed to help patients safely recover and rehabilitate in the comfort of their own home following total hip or knee replacement surgery.
We work closely with hospital case managers and physicians to arrange home health care services that will be needed after you leave the hospital. This includes home health nursing and physical therapy. If ordered by the physician, Henry Ford Home Health Care may also provide occupational therapy, home health aide services, medical social work or nutrition consultation.
Private duty services may be arranged through Henry Ford Extended Care for patients who need extended care for longer period of time on a private pay basis.

Remote Patient Monitoring
Henry Ford at Home’s Remote Patient Monitoring is a personal, in-home monitoring program that combines in home technology with home health services to help patients better manage their chronic conditions. Participation in our Remote Patient Monitoring program may help prevent avoidable visits to the emergency department and hospitalizations while improving your quality of life.
As part of the program, patients with chronic illnesses such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes or high blood pressure track their vital signs and conditions daily on easy-to-use wireless devices. Patients are also prompted to answer questions about their health and how they are feeling. The information is then transmitted electronically to the telehealth nurse who looks for changes in the patient’s status or results that fall outside normal limits. The telehealth nurse will monitor results and follow up with a phone call or home visit, if needed.
How does Remote Patient Monitoring work?
The entire process takes only a few minutes and can be done at any time of the day that is convenient for you.
Learn more about the Henry Ford Remote Patient Monitoring by calling (248) 355-6400 or email.
Wound, ostomy, and continence nursing
Our wound, ostomy and continence program provides clinical and consultative services to patients and their caregivers in their homes. This service is provided by a certified wound, ostomy and continence nurse (CWOCN), or a nurse who is extensively trained in specialty wound care.
