Remote patient care is becoming more common – especially after our experience during the pandemic. Getting patients into a medical office can be challenging for multiple reasons. Some patients are physically or emotionally compromised, making it challenging for them to travel from their home to a doctor’s office or medical facility. In many cases, remote patient care is an effective way to treat these patients and support their caregivers. For example, patients who require medical devices and equipment at home can use Help Lightning to enable high-touch patient care in a virtual setting.
Remote visual assistance technology enables highly effective remote patient care. It provides a merged reality video stream that allows doctors, nurses, patients, and caregivers to work together from anywhere. Both sides can engage with the screen for a 3D view and very specific instruction on how to care for patients and use their medical equipment. This allows patients to get the support they need for the best possible care. And this is without the challenge of having to leave their homes.
Whether in an adjacent hospital room or in another state, remote patient care supports the patient’s needs. It is also helping medical staff be very efficient with their time.
Remote visual assistance technology allows users to view a merged reality where both sides can engage with the view on the screen. This means doctors, nurses, patients, and caregivers, can engage as if they were side-by-side.
The patient remains in the comfort of their home and did not suffer an unnecessary move. The medical staff was able to conduct this visit quickly and efficiently.
Remote visual assistance technology makes remote patient care more dynamic and high touch than it’s ever been before. This goes well beyond a 2D telehealth appointment. It merges the patient’s environment with the medical provider’s for a shared reality. This allows for effective care and ensures at-home medical devices are in appropriate use.
Medical professionals have the ability to engage patients and caregivers to ensure care is being properly executed. Both sides of the screen can engage in a merged virtual reality, making collaboration feel as if it’s in person.
Remote patient care supports several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in medical settings.
