MHW learned Friday that the Retreat at Sunny Vista has partnered with Charlotte-based TeleHealth Solution to provide the elderly residents of their community with immediate, in-house medical care.
From the official word:
While patients relax in their familiar surroundings, an on-screen physician will conduct a virtual, face-to-face examination and discuss the plan of care. In the vast majority of interventions, the patient will be able to receive treatment at The Retreat at Sunny Vista, avoiding a trip to the Emergency Room, an unnecessary hospital admission, and the stress and complications that can arise.
“They are the only assisted living community in the Colorado Springs area with our high-tech TeleMedicine service,” says Waseem Ghannam, MD, MBA, a founder of TeleHealth Solution. “It’s a win-win for everyone involved. When we can intervene, absolutely everyone benefits. Hospital ERs will be less crowded, patients can remain comfortably in their rooms, and their families will enjoy peace of mind knowing that not every health issue results in a frightening trip to the hospital.”
