The In-Home Bio-Monitoring Program combines resources from ADPH Home Care, the Alabama Medicaid Agency and the University of South Alabama to provide an in-home monitoring service for specific chronic illnesses.
Medicaid Patient 1st patients who have congestive heart failure, diabetes, and/or hypertension may qualify for the in- home monitoring program. The Patient 1st provider will determine if the patient needs daily monitoring and will provide the orders for the patients to be admitted to the In-Home Bio-Monitoring Program.
Potential Benefits for Patients
