PatientSafe Solutions, a provider of clinical communication and collaboration solutions for the healthcare enterprise, has launched video capabilities within the PatientTouch platform, the company said.
The solution enables care team members to interact with one another and patient families safely and efficiently via workflow-triggered video sessions.
The rapid implementation in hospitals of consumer-focused video platforms during the COVID-19 pandemic has caused further fragmentation of workflow in the inpatient setting. Health systems are now re-assessing their technology portfolio to ensure a more logical approach that aligns to long-term enterprise standards.
By layering video into the PatientTouch platform, health systems can enable clinicians to easily start, manage, and coordinate the video sessions essential to virtual team-based care in a simple, effective user experience aligned with the health systems´ video solution of choice.
PatientTouch Video enables virtual care team consultations and patient rounding using current hospital-owned shared devices or on physician-owned devices (Bring Your Own Device). Video calls can be initiated with one touch from within the PatientTouch application just as easily as a secured message or voice call for a streamlined care collaboration experience. PatientTouch video is patient-centric and integrated with the hospital´s existing video and clinical system standards, allowing care team members to know who is assigned, on-call, and available for on-demand consultations, either one-on-one or in groups.
An industry provider of clinical communication and collaboration solutions for healthcare, PatientSafe helps hospitals measurably improve efficiency, clinical outcomes, and satisfaction by enabling smartphone-based closed-loop workflows. PatientSafe delivers quantifiable safety and quality improvements through a mobile platform that extends an organization´s EMR, clinical and communication infrastructure, and seamlessly enables virtual team-based care workflows.
