Health Matters Podcast – Digital Patient Monitoring with Dr. Richard Friend

March 2, 2023

The Health Matters Podcast is a series created in collaboration with WVUA-23 and Alabama Public Radio that features University Medical Center physicians and providers who bring awareness of important health issues and relevant and timely health information to the public.

Digital devices can help provide better care to patients because they monitor vital signs and other factors in real-time. These devices can help patients manage diabetes, high blood pressure and other chronic conditions. UMC-Tuscaloosa is partnering with Ceras Health to make devices available to patients recently released from the hospital. Dr. Richard Friend, dean of CCHS, which operates UMC, explains.
