WASHINGTON, D.C. — October 31, 2013 —Honeywell (NYSE: HON) HomMed’s products and services, featured in Booth #1111 at the 2013 National Association for Home Care & Hospice, continue to extend the reach of telehealth solutions, enabling home care agencies to provide an enhanced level of care for their patients.
