Saint Agnes Hospice also launched Home Care Connect Link in 2017 – a digital emergency response device that provides hospice patients and their families instant, two-way communication with the care team. With a simple push of the button on the wristband device, patients can ask questions or get connected with their physician and other members of the care team, 24/7. "Patients are enjoying the many benefits of these new patient monitoring devices," says Saint Agnes Home Health and Hospice Administrator Cynthia Gutierrez. "Our phenomenal team has been working hard to coordinate the kit deliveries and Home Health nurses and therapists delivering and installing the units go the extra mile to ensure patients understand their value."
