Kaiser Permanente's in-home monitoring system helps physicians and nurses track changes in patient conditions to prevent problems before they require another trip to the hospital. The Latitude Patient Management system, from Boston Scientific, includes a scale, blood pressure cuff and home monitor connected directly to Kaiser hospitals. The system is more convenient for patients, compared with repeated trips to the doctor's office for check-ups, and can reduce health care costs.
