Use Cases Of Our Telehealth Technology
Whether you need immediate help from a pediatric cardiologist not in the hospital or whether you are participating in an asthma control trial and need both remote access and recorded auscultation sessions, the PCP telemedicine stethoscope and software will prove invaluable.
Chronic Care Management Programs
A key component of chronic care management is patient engagement and involvement in their own care management. With desktop video conference software and the PCP telemedicine stethoscope, the physician can virtually come into the patient’s home or facility room and provide the needed impetus for attaining those goals.
For improved customer service and greater organizational efficiency, specialists can be made immediately available to outpatient facilities with telemedicine software and can use the PCP stethoscope for auscultation of a variety of sounds including heart, lungs, bowel, carotids, etc.
Hospital Isolation Units
From flu pandemics to Ebola outbreaks, there are times when it is vital to limit personnel access to the patient. With a PCP stethoscope installed at the patient bedside, the designated nurse or technician who is in the room can arrange for doctors or nurses located anywhere to monitor heart and lung sounds.
Rural clinics are often staffed by nurses or other non-physicians providers. A telemedicine stethoscope integrated into a patient management system can provide excellent physician backup through a virtual lifeline to the physician clinic manager or specialists in other locations.
Assisted Living Centers
Telemedicine is a natural for Assisted Living Centers and skilled nursing facilities. Medical Directors, physicians, and even family can see and evaluate residents between in-person visits. Integrated diagnostic tools like telemedicine stethoscopes add significantly to the quality of care when used with live two-way video.
School Based Clinics
When your child goes to the school nurse, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have the doctor or nurse practitioner take a look at them before automatically being sent home? With a telemedicine video platform and a stethoscope, they can do that easily and even connect you in for a video chat to tell you what they recommend. Often, you may not have to make a trip to school at all.
Home Health Care
Nurses making home health visits or other patient house calls can literally bring the physician into the patient’s home to conduct comprehensive examinations when diagnostic devices such as the PCP stethoscope are used concurrently with videoconferencing software. Virtual house calls are now a reality.
Employee Health Clinics
Due to the high and ever increasing cost of healthcare, many employers are becoming self-insured and are opening onsite, nurse run clinics and wellness facilities. These become excellent vehicles for reducing absenteeism and medical care cost savings when equipped with telemedicine video and remote diagnostic devices like the PCP-USB telemedicine stethoscope.
