SNF & LTC Facilities

Reduce unnecessary and costly transfers by empowering on-site nurses and physicians with telehealth to access hospitals and specialists.

“Telehealth enables our residents to remain here with our nurses by their side while seeing a remote doctor on video. This improves continuity of care and has cut thousands of dollars by avoiding unnecessary transfers.”
— Becky Browning, Ethica Johnson County Health and Rehab

Telehealth for Skilled Nursing & Long Term Care Facilities

One of the greatest challenges in providing comprehensive healthcare services to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) is the lack of on-site physicians. Urgent situations often result in unnecessary transfers to the ED because on-site physicians lacks information or access to specialists to make an informed decision.
