As we’ve seen the recent spike in Covid cases, it is important more now than ever for healthcare facilities to manage their visitor policies. Bioscape Digital provides communication tools for health systems to adhere to the CDC’s recommendation in the article below: “Facilities should apply alternatives for direct interaction between visitors and patients, including setting up remote communications (e.g., telephone or internet connection) in the isolation area to allow for video or audio calls.”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bioscape Digital developed a new feature on its Patient Engagement Platform named Communicator. Patients can now communicate with providers, staff, and loved ones at the touch of a button on their Bioscape bedside tablet. Communicator is unique in that it does not require a user name or password; instead, the system creates a secure, video conference link that can be used internally within the hospital or shared externally with restricted visitors. Not only does this platform reduce staff risk during a health crisis while minimizing PPE shortages, it also enhances patients’ education and experience.
In an effort to help manage this pandemic, we ask that you share this information with colleagues at health systems that may benefit from our technology. For further information, please contact Sean Khant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
