Following a great discussion with our CTO, some thoughts on why we need Digital by Design and not Digital by Default when thinking about #digitalhealth https://t.co/zO4mkFTL6f
To find an alternative method for delivering an Outpatient Consultation between a healthcare professional and a patient so that these patients continue to receive healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic.
These are typically patients who have health problems who visit the hospital to see a consultant for diagnosis or treatment, but do not require a bed or to be admitted for overnight care.
This video consultation system can be accessed remotely via a PC or laptop with a camera or by using a smart-phone or tablet.
It is very easy to use. Once you are set up a virtual appointment with a patient, then you just click ‘Start Video Call’ to log into the virtual waiting room.
This solution is designed to replace traditional outpatient consultation.
The patient clicks on a link and can then access a ‘virtual waiting room’ online via their computer or device.
The patient hears music and sees messages on the screen until the clinician is ready to join the consultation.
Maintains continuity of care during measures imposed during COVID-19 Pandemic.
Patient receives care safely and also saves time travelling to Hospital sites, improving their outpatient experience and daily lifestyle.
