Ensure quality patient care and increase staff satisfaction
When residents require intervention in the middle of the night, the nurse is often making decisions without the benefit of the attending physician, and determining the next step is a tough choice to make.
With Virtual Health, your nursing staff can feel confident that they are making the right choice. Without any disruption to their workflows, a simple click of a button from the patient’s chart connects with an on-shift, experienced physician who has real-time access to the patient’s history and can see, assess, and treat most conditions, reducing the need for a hospital transfer.
The Virtual Health physicians “treat in place” 96% of the time, preventing stressful and expensive after-hours trips to the hospital, and every encounter is thoroughly documented in the EHR to ensure access for the attending physician and the entire care team.
