Healthcare in skilled nursing facilities can get complicated quickly when access to a physician is not quick and easy. Many facilities have a physician on staff but not on-site and phone calls may not provide enough information for an accurate diagnosis. Sometimes doctors have no choice but to recommend that the patient goes to the hospital, increasing costs and hospitalization rates for your facility.
The solution is diagnostic telemedicine such as Let's Talk Telemedicine.
Our platform is affordable, secure and reliable using the Zoom video platform. But it does much more than just connect your patients with a doctor. It integrates with medical carts and kiosks and more than 40 medical devices allowing a physician to obtain a patient's vitals as if they're in the same room.
Telehealth in skilled nursing is very effective in preventing unnecessary hospitalizations. A telehealth platform allows a doctor to monitor a patient remotely, guiding a nurse through providing the right care to improve the patient’s clinical status.
Nurses trained in telemedicine can use medical devices integrated with a telecart to take a patient’s vitals and relay the information to the doctor who can then quickly analyze them and provide an accurate diagnosis, all in real-time.
This process can help catch issues before a patient’s condition deteriorates to the point of hospitalization. If hospitalization is deemed necessary, our platform can help coordinate the transfer remotely.
Telehealth at skilled nursing facilities allows nurses to grow more confident in their skills by becoming more involved in the patient’s care.
A telehealth platform is an everyday tool for nurses, who know a doctor is instantly available to support them in case of an emergency. This teamwork with telehealth specialists helps nurses improve their assessment skills and enhances a patient’s routine care with a more preventative and proactive mindset.
