Advancements in technology, legislation, and consumer behaviors over the last decade have set the stage for a new virtual healthcare model to emerge. Telehealth helps make it possible to provide a new level of care outside of traditional settings – keeping patients out of the hospital and in their own homes.
Provider organizations may now be looking to implement telehealth programs that increase efficiency, improve care coordination, reduce costs and result in better healthcare outcomes. Honeywell is addressing these needs by bringing remote patient monitoring solutions to the next level with integrated video visits as part of the latest LifeStream release.
Clinicians can now initiate and manage video visits directly from their LifeStream dashboard. Not only does this streamline clinical workflows but video communication helps reinforce and evaluate patient adherence to care plans. Clinicians can view visual indicators/symptoms of deteriorating health, evaluate medications and speak with family members and caretakers through video interaction. In addition, face-to-face conversations can often provide comfort and encouragement for patients, reducing feelings of isolation felt by chronically ill patients.
With the Honeywell telehealth platform, software updates, troubleshooting and customer service come from the same source – Honeywell – simplifying the overall user experience.
The LifeStream solution is also easily deployed, allowing clinicians to connect to large patient populations over long distances without placing a burden on organizational resources and IT staff. Most importantly, patients are empowered to work with their caregiver to achieve desirable clinical results.
Honeywell Life Care Solutions is driving innovation with its video-based telehealth solutions designed to improve the quality of patients’ lives and reduce the overall cost of healthcare.
