Virtual Healthcare Use Cases

Staff Duress Events

A nursing staff member in a crisis or with emergency safety concerns can simply push a button on their badge to create a notification to be displayed within the room banner being viewed by the virtual care nurse. Staff name and location can be displayed along with the ability to view the cameras and audio in the patient room, and dispatch response for immediate assistance or initiate access control remotely for lockdown procedures.

Advanced Patient Safety

Staff safety enables real-time notifications of who and where assistance is needed. With virtual hubs in each patient room, a virtual nurse can monitor multiple patients at once, and be alerted with custom notification messages and sounds configured based on priority level. For example, if a patient's bed rails are lowered, or a patient falls, pulls a cord, calls for help, etc, the nurse call system and cameras will detect this and trigger an event which immediately displays on the dashboard monitor. 

Nurse Call Events

Nurse call events for each room can be viewed within the room banner being viewed by the virtual care nurse providing a holistic view of all events happening inside of the patient room. 

Asset Tracking Events

Virtual care staff can proactively search and locate equipment that is needed prior to the nurse in the room spending time looking. Not only can the virtual staff member locate nearby equipment that is available to use, but now the nurse can focus on providing care to their patients, saving time and driving efficiencies.
