Rescue Alert is just one piece of equipment making a difference.

Telehealth equipment let doctors and caretakers constantly monitor their patients.

Suzanne Chadwell lives alone in her Salt Lake City apartment, but her doctors are watching her thanks to the Telehealth.

Every morning Suzanne steps on the scale, puts on an arm band and a censor on her finger. The equipment takes her weight, blood pressure and oxygen level. All of the information sent to her doctor and home care takers.

Suzanne said, "He has kept tabs on me very well and that has kept me out of the hospital."
