Introducing the PDi Telehealth Cart
Healthcare providers, hospital systems, and patients have had to pivot in countless ways due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From the expanded use of PPE to postponed elective procedures to new protocols and screenings, almost every aspect of medical care has been impacted in one way or another.
One of the biggest changes in the patient experience is the restrictions on loved ones visiting patients or accompanying patients to appointments. These restrictions can make the challenges of facing a health problem even more difficult—on a number of levels.
The presence of family members, loved ones, or caregivers provides a significant emotional boost for patients who otherwise face their health challenges alone. It also aids in communication between patient and provider, lessening the burden on the patient to ask all the right questions and remember everything the provider shares.
One Solution? PDi’s Telehealth Cart
While there’s no true substitute for the physical presence of a patient’s loved ones, PDI’s Telehealth Cart has helped hospitals across the country connect patients with their friends and family.
With a hospital-grade touchscreen, it’s easier than ever for patients to stay connected with their loved ones while in the hospital. And with the HIPAA-compliant Teleray video software, they can even have their loved ones join conversations with medical providers.
The Telehealth Cart is also a great solution for senior living centers and other facilities where residents are less likely to have a smartphone for video calls with family.
Is It Worth It?
Investing in Telehealth Carts for your facility can be beneficial on many levels. First and foremost, it provides connection and emotional support for individuals during difficult life circumstances. In addition, it can also help with:
- Improving care plan adherence by involving family members and caregivers in important conversations
- Improving the overall patient experience, which can lead to increased patient satisfaction scores
