An emerging service model that combines technology and direct care to support people with developmental disabilities, remote support uses two-way communication in real time, including home-based sensors, cameras, and other technologies, to allow an off-site caregiver to monitor and respond to the safety and needs of people living in the community. Remote support is also known as remote monitoring.
Remote support is a Medicaid service
OAC 5123: 2-9-35. All Medicaid waivers cover the cost and maintenance of equipment that is used for remote support service delivery. Remote support is a branch of the Ohio Technology Project.
The remote support someone might use in their home would be different for each person, because supports are based on the needs of the person at the center of the service. Walk through some of the options available by clicking through each room below.
