Watch this short video to see how Virtual Visits can keep providers, patients, and their families safe and connected.
There is a global shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), putting doctors, nurses and extended care teams at risk for contracting COVID-19. At the same time, patients are under intense isolation and without their families – prompting leading medical associations like the American Medical Association to call for expedition in implementing telemedicine. We are excited to launch a new telehealth workflow aimed to protect providers while still connecting patients to care and their communities – Virtual Visits.
With Virtual Visits powered by Jamf, healthcare organizations can configure and instantly deploy third-party conferencing platforms like Cisco WebEx, Zoom and Microsoft Teams to iPad or iPhone. Providers are able to easily virtually round to their patients, and patients can simply connect with loved ones outside the hospital — without IT ever having to touch the device. Further, once patients are discharged, Virtual Visits can help to automatically digitally wipe the device to prepare it for the next patient. This new workflow limits the amount of PPE care teams use during each patient encounter, but still enables them to provide quality care. Patients are also able to connect with their families, which can provide critical emotional support during this difficult time.
