“This program complements our medical and nursing care model by providing our residents direct access to physicians in their own room, ensuring the best care wherever and whenever it is necessary, day or night.” -Dr. Singerman, Villa’s Chief Medical Advisor.
(PRWEB) January 03, 2018
Villa Healthcare, through its affiliated facilities that provide post-acute and long-term care, announced a partnership with Third Eye Health, Inc., the leading technology enabled medical services company in the post-acute and long-term care market, to provide expert medical care through telehealth technology to its’ residents any time of the day. The focus of the Villa 24/7 Care program is to improve care quality and help avoid trips to the hospital unless absolutely necessary.
When a resident is in need of immediate medical care, a Villa nurse can go straight to the resident’s room with a tablet running Third Eye Health’s proprietary telehealth technology, and with the touch of a button, the nurse can conduct a remote consultation with a Third Eye physician to provide the most medically appropriate level of care to the resident. Across multiple states and types of long-term care facilities, Third Eye’s program has shown major reductions in unnecessary acute transfers and readmissions, while also improving care quality and increasing resident and family satisfaction.
“This program complements our medical and nursing care model by providing our residents direct access to physicians in their own room, ensuring the best care wherever and whenever it is necessary, day or night,” stated Dr. Singerman, Villa’s Chief Medical Advisor. “Accessible, elevated and timely medical care is necessary to eliminate unnecessary hospital transfers for the people we are privileged to care for,” stated Jeanne Rice, Villa’s Regional Director of Clinical Services.
Third Eye Health’s solution is deployed on tablets throughout Villa’s facilities, allowing secure text, picture, video and medical device data communication with remote physicians and other health care providers. Third Eye’s board-certified physicians are specialists in acute care, with extensive experience in Emergency Medicine and Hospitalist Medicine. These physicians complement the excellent long-term care management provided by Villa’s physicians and nursing staff.
According to Dan Herbstman, CEO of Third Eye Health, “We are excited to partner with a leader in long-term care, like Villa Healthcare, to offer our solution to improve the quality of life for their residents by allowing 24/7 access to advanced health care providers and appointments with specialists.”
“We ensure that every acute event or change in condition gets an evaluation from one of our highly skilled physicians within two minutes. In my years of practice, this is almost unheard of in the post-acute space," stated Dr. Jane Himmelvo, Third Eye Health’s Medical Director.
Over the next few months, the Villa 24/7 Care program will roll out to Villa Healthcare’s Michigan centers.
