Long Term Care and Skilled Nursing Facilities present unique challenges to providing a safe environment and comfortable care to patients and residents. Howard Medical offers a variety of solutions designed to improve the level of care as well as the patients experience. From technologies that promote better health outcomes via Patient entertainment, education and engagement through their in room televisions, to Telehealth solutions that reduce unnecessary hospital visits by expanding access to Physician care, to Virtual Visitor options that allow patients a greater sense of connection with friends and family via video chat. Our solutions allow patients to become more engaged in their own health and well-being.
Telehealth can be a significant untapped resource for long term care facilities and allow them to provide higher quality care for patients at lower costs. It can expand access to quality care and specialists without the need for travel to and from face to face in person evaluations at physical offices or hospitals.
With in-person visitation restrictions put into place during the pandemic long term care residents face challenges staying connected to their loved ones. This lack of contact can increase stress and feelings of isolation as residents lose a sense of connection to friends and family. Our Virtual Visitor endpoints allow residents to safely and remotely stay connected and in touch with loved ones. These mobile endpoints can easily be moved throughout the facility also be utilized for physician care if needed.
Our in room patient engagement solution provides entertainment as well as seamless communication between the resident and the facility. Residents have access to their careplan and medication information as well as entertainment options such as television programming, relaxation videos, and spiritual content.
