Home Telehealth Technology for Veterans


by Public Affairs


Are you a Veteran with a chronic disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pain management or even weight control issues.  Is it difficult for you to drive to your medical appointments?

Care Coordination/Home Telehealth (CCHT) technology has been available to help Veterans at the Hampton VAMC since 2005.  The Hampton VAMC, Telehealth program can provide you with the coordination and support needed to successfully manage your healthcare from home.

Through an easy-to-use device that connects to your home telephone line (POTS), you can communicate your daily results to a Telehealth Care Coordinator – a registered nurse – who will work closely with your primary care provider to ensure your success.

Home Telehealth provides a home messaging device at no cost to Veterans.   Veterans who participate in the program, use the device daily to  send data such as weight, blood sugar and blood pressure to a registered nurse who reviews the information, documents findings in the patient’s medical records and assists the primary care provider with care management.  Non emergency healthcare advice and treatment can be obtained without having to drive to the Hampton VAMC.

Typically, Veterans who qualify for Telehealth may  have an elevated hemoglobin A1C, or need some extra monitoring of their blood pressure or other conditions,  have the ability to use and care for the easy-to-use equipment, a working telephone line and has communicated a strong commitment to managing their health.
If you are interested in enrolling in the Home Telehealth Program, you may contact (757) 728-7053 for more information or talk to your primary care physician during your next appointment.

The New P90X Program Promises Results In Just 90 Days.

Health & Medicine Week April 25, 2011 Los Angeles, CA, USA – P90X is an at-home workout program that is designed to completely revolutionize a body in just 90 days. The program focuses on burning excess fat, as well as building lean muscle that will completely reshape the body. P90X requires little equipment to get these results, but it takes quite a bit of commitment to take the 90 day challenge and actually complete the entire program (see also Diet and Nutrition).

The brainchild behind P90X is trainer Tony Horton, who created this program as a guaranteed way to get results in the shortest amount of time. P90X is a complete workout program made up of 12 intense workout routines detailed over the course of 12 DVD’s. P90X is designed as a complete, proportional, full-body exercise program that builds muscle fast and decreases body fat. web site does p90x work

The real key to the success of P90X is both the intensity of the program as well as what is known as “muscle confusion”. This is basically a process of switching up the exercises to avoid exercise plateaus as well as boredom from doing the same exercises over and over again. This type of exercising is a great way to stay motivated as individuals continually see their body change for the better. web site does p90x work

Along with the complete 90 day workout schedule, the program also includes a comprehensive P90X nutrition plan to accompany the workouts. Nutrition is equally important to exercise when it comes to changing a body shape. This nutrition plan is designed to adapt to the program as customers progress through their workouts. The complete nutrition guide has three distinct phases that will show them exactly what to eat to receive maximum results.

Many customers have reported that the P90X program is intense and difficult, especially in the beginning. This program takes a high level of commitment and is not meant for the casual exerciser. 90 days is really a short amount of time to get the body of their dreams, but it will take much commitment, lots of sweat and maybe even a few tears to make it to the end. Customers who completed it say that this was the best decision that they ever made because P90X completely changed their life for the better.
