Nightingale was the first agency to pioneer technology in the realm of home care. This feat was achieved by placing monitoring systems in the patient's home to check his/her vital signs and forward the information to a medical professional on duty every day of the year 365 days. Today, Nightingale continues the practice of placing these devices in the homes of their most vulnerable patients. Since Medicare or Medicaid does not pay for it has been done as an added service for all patients who need such monitoring for their, their doctors as well as their loved ones' peace of mind. However, this technology was a mere stepping stone because the company now offers their clients home emergency monitoring, electronic medication reminders, and photo light therapy.
