Telecare offers a variety of inpatient services to help hospitals: After-hours Virtual Inpatient Admissions and Ward Rounds & After-hours Ad Hoc Calls and Secondary Inpatient Consultations.
Our Virtual Inpatient Admission service allows rural hospitals to continue admitting patients after hours, or conduct ward rounds, in the event that an admitting physician is unavailable. Telecare clinicians will work closely with your hospital's nursing team via telehealth to review patient information, complete the admission process and conduct ward rounds. This includes performing virtual evaluations, reviewing test results, and determining the appropriate level of care for the patient. Our Virtual Inpatient Admitting Physician service can help hospitals streamline the admission process, improve patient care, and reduce costs. It also allows hospitals to admit patients more quickly, which can improve patient satisfaction and reduce bed blocks at neighbouring facilities.
Telecare can provide hospital inpatients, medical officers and nursing staff with access to clinicians from select specialties to discuss patient issues. These may take the form of virtual consultations with the patient, or phone calls between Telecare clinicians and hospital staff members. For patient virtual consultation requests, written referrals will be sent to Telecare. Telecare can then offer a virtual consultation with the patient as soon as possible. Phone advice can be available for general medicine and select specialties.
Before an appointment takes place, Telecare will work with you to ensure that:
