Patient-centered alliance brings nature indoors for those unable to go outdoors

At Virtual Photo Walks, we walk the walk for those that can’t. Our organization is widely recognized for its unique approach to making a difference in people’s lives.

ResolutionCare, Virtual Photo Walks and Zoom today announced a partnership agreement that will enable people with serious and life limiting illness to enjoy the freedom to experience places and people they can only dream about.

“As we face disability or even the approach of our death, many people experience a new way of seeing. Offering them Virtual Photo Walks to experience the natural world through this lens is transformative and healing,” said Michael D. Fratkin, MD, Founder/Director at ResolutionCare.

A palliative care organization pioneering alternative models of healthcare delivery, ResolutionCare’s alliance with Virtual Photo Walks and Zoom extends ResolutionCare’s ability to provide patient-centered, compassionate care to people everywhere.

Since 2011, Virtual Photo Walks, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, is a charity that harnesses the power of cloud-based videoconferencing technology including Zoom to enable the disabled, infirm and those isolated and hospitalized – young and old – to visit distant places. Using “virtual volunteer guides” equipped with smart phones, the disabled can participate in immersive, real-time experiences of places they will likely never see first-hand. They can interact with each other and their virtual photographer guide in each private videoconference.

“At Virtual Photo Walks, we walk the walk for those that can’t,” said John Butterill Founder/Director. “Our organization is widely recognized for its unique approach to making a difference in people’s lives.”

ResolutionCare is dedicated to providing and teaching the highest quality of palliative care. The organization has also been harnessing the opportunities provided by Zoom cloud-based videoconferencing technology to care for people with serious illnesses entirely in their home. Team based and person-centered, ResolutionCare supports quality of life, empowered decision making, and self determination for people navigating life’s greatest challenge.

“Zoom is honored to be part of the amazing care and services that organizations like ResolutionCare and Virtual Photo Walks provide to people who are going through difficult challenges and experiences,” said Eric Yuan, CEO. “Through important partnerships like this, we believe that technology can and should be a tool that enhances the connection and closeness between care providers and those who rely on them,” he added.
