The use of telemedicine is no longer optional.
The White House is strongly advising that nursing homes for the elderly suspend all medically unnecessary visits and the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2020 has relaxed current restrictions on providing medical care via telemedicine.
Telemedicine is now allowed for all Medicare, Medicare Advantage and some Medicaid beneficiaries throughout the United States during this public health emergency with some restrictions.
Saisystems Health and Saisystems Digital have developed a new solution for our clients called, ‘Communicator’.
This Post-Acute Care Communication System enables secure, HIPAA compliant messaging, full integration with other products and most importantly live audio and video telemedicine visit capabilities. All while remaining HIPAA compliant.
Beyond the most recent health threats long term care facilities face several challenges communicating with providers.
A dedicated device with the Communicator application is at the nurse’s station, but mobile enough to allow new patient requests from anywhere in the facility.
The request tracking feature is linked to the facility patient census to easily see the status of request on an individual patient level
Providers know who the request is for an in which facility their based.
They can triage the situation, chat or schedule follow ups.
