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.

Hospital Isolation Units

From pandemics to Ebola outbreaks, there are times when it is vital to limit personnel access to the patient.

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.

School 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.
