In healthcare, constant technology innovation provides endless opportunities to enhance patient care and streamline the responsibilities of healthcare professionals. With the introduction of HCI Virtual Nursing, powered by Zoom for Healthcare, we're witnessing a transformative shift in how care is delivered, both from the perspective of the nurse and the patient. This innovative platform not only redefines the parameters of virtual nursing but also encapsulates a future where technology and healthcare converge seamlessly.

Instant Care at the Push of a Button or Triggered Alert

A Smart bed senses an Exit. A Patient trips a Pull Cord. Or a patient in their room with an urgent question or concern. With just a simple push of a button, patients can instantly open a video channel and connect with an experienced caregiver, regardless of the caregiver's location within the facility. This immediate access to care providers not only enhances patient satisfaction but also optimizes the response time to patient needs, ensuring that expert advice is just a moment away.

Virtual Sitting | Revolutionizing Patient Monitoring

In addition to on-demand video consultations, HCI's Virtual Nursing platform introduces an advanced Virtual Sitting (or eSitting) function. This feature allows healthcare professionals to remotely monitor multiple patients from a single console, a significant leap from the traditional 1-to-1 patient monitoring ratio. This innovative approach not only ensures continuous, comprehensive care for patients but also represents a major stride in operational efficiency, potentially saving healthcare institutions millions of dollars annually.

Seamless Integration for Enhanced or Specialized Care

Designed with the needs of healthcare facilities in mind, HCI's Virtual Nursing platform seamlessly integrates into existing workflows, providing a user-friendly interface that does not require extensive training or adjustment. Whether integrated into a Patient TV or an Interactive Digital Whiteboard, the platform is versatile, scalable, and designed to meet the diverse needs of today's healthcare providers.
