As a physician and business owner, I've had nothing but success with the Connected for Care program. It is an amazing tool that provides for the highest quality medical care in skilled nursing facilities 24/7. The technology is superb. At 7pm, midnight or 3am I am able to do a comprehensive history & physical exam from the comfort of my home and know that I am giving the same level of care as if I was at the building. I would highly recommend this program to any medical professional who would like to offer state of the art medical care whenever it is needed, to avoid unnecessary ER visits and hospital readmissions.
They consider it as their best friend, because aside from being very accessible, they have somebody to assess the patient with them and be able to manage any change in condition immediately, thus preventing the inconvenience on the part of the patient going back to the hospital.
As a Telemedicine provider I find it invaluable that I am able to see and examine a patient as needed, and not have to worry if I was given an accurate assessment over the phone. It makes trying to determine a plan of care for a patient, including possible RTH or remaining in the facility, an easier decision. Telemedicine truly does elevate the care provided to patients especially on those off hours when care is often needed most.
Since initiating Connected For Care, our location has seen a great improvement in the reduction of Return to Hospital (RTH). In reviewing the data (since implementation), our retention rate is 86%...The support received by the PCPs has been overwhelming and the family members are excited in not putting their loved ones on an emotional roller-coaster of the back and forth to the hospital & back to the Skilled Nursing Facility. Our Return To Hospital is less than 6% and we continue to improve with constant education on telemedicine and position outcomes to support its usage.
