As telemedicine evolves, hospitals are searching for easy-to-integrate virtual software that helps increase efficiencies, cut costs and address labor demands. However, most solutions are expensive, complex and have limited scaling potential. Hosting a recent webinar for SONIFI Health, a leading provider of interactive patient engagement solutions, CSO Alan Pitt, MD and CEO/CTO Ghafran Abbas provided hospital decision-makers with suggestions on how to streamline their telemedicine integration and deploy AI-driven technologies across entire healthcare facilities.
The Vitalchat co-founders shared five strategies for a successful integration process with telemedicine and healthcare executives, including the use of TV-based solutions that are compatible with existing EHRs and limit the need for staff intervention. They noted that Vitalchat’s next-level offerings check all the boxes discussed, helping eliminate cumbersome hardware, hands-on management, lack of scalability and other existing challenges within the telemedicine space. The integration is another step toward Vitalchat’s mission to make medical collaboration ubiquitous; simply part of the care continuum through a “single pane of glass.”
