Remote Patient Monitoring Program
At Angel Oak Counseling, we care about your overall health and are always looking for ways to improve the quality of care we provide you. We are excited to announce we are partnering with Athelas. The Athelas program will provide you with tools to monitor your vitals at home (ex. blood pressure, glucose, weight), which will be reported back to your provider and used to ensure that your course of treatment is on track, and not causing any unforeseen side effects. Many psychiatric medications can affect both your physical health and your mental health, so it is important that we continue to keep an eye on your physical health even during televisits.

How the Program Works
Step 2: Receiving Devices by Mail
When you have successfully completed the sign up process with Athelas they will directly ship you a blood pressure cuff to start. Included are instructions on how to use the device and if any questions arise, feel free to reach out to Athelas for assistance.
Additional devices (to check weight and blood glucose) will be sent after your first two months of being active in the program, but can also be provided sooner upon request.
