HOW OUR TEAM CAN HELP

The UMMS RHO Team helps follow-up clinics implement recorded home oximetry utilization as the standard management strategy for weaning home oxygen in the outpatient setting. Our team has extensive experience and expertise weaning home oxygen therapy and can help mentor and guide the implementation of RHO at the individual site level and across institutions.

The RHO Program has engaged many key stakeholders from payer groups, national and regional home care companies, oximeter manufacturers, and most importantly families of infants on home oxygen therapy to guide the implementation of this safe and effective management strategy.

HOW THE UMMS RHO LEADERSHIP TEAM CAN HELP

The UMMS RHO team works with hospitals, their medical teams and families to implement the RHO program as their standard of care practice. Our team includes experts in patient care, implementation science, and quality improvement that can guide participating sites during every stage of implementation.
