The intellivisit solution creates a scenario where guidance can be delivered on a patient-by-patient basis; relieving stress on hospitals, clinics and providers – and aiding in the conservation and appropriate use of personal protective equipment (“PPE”), testing supplies and other resources.
Milwaukee, WI. (PRWEB) April 13, 2020
With the rapid spread of COVID-19 and general uneasiness surrounding its potential for contagion, it has become increasingly difficult for health systems to distinguish between patients that may have been exposed and experiencing symptoms from those that are unaffected at that point in time. In response to the crisis, healthcare technology company intellivisit has launched an online patient and provider solution to mass triage COVID-19 patients asynchronously.
The COVID-19 Rapid Assessment solution enables audiences to access the COVID-19 triage survey, share symptom and household information, and receive helpful guidance on reducing the spread of the virus and directions to receive care, if necessary. The questions mirror those set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) related to visits to affected regions and key symptoms, but then go into greater detail to collect data helpful to healthcare providers in monitoring the spread and potential impact of the virus. Patients can also submit their case without having to schedule a video or phone call with a provider, creating a much lower barrier for access to care.
After submission by the patient, a nurse-staffed call center receives information from each patient encounter via the intellivisit secure provider portal. The intellivisit software identifies those that are at the greatest risk for exposure, spread, and health complications based on their answers and then places a severity rating on each case in the queue. Armed with this intelligence prior to contacting the patient, response team members will then be able to provide guidance on a patient-by-patient basis, relieving stress on hospitals, clinics and providers – and aiding in the conservation and appropriate use of personal protective equipment (“PPE”), testing supplies and other resources.
“We are honored to be able to deliver timely direction and care to the public during this time of need,” said Jeff Stein, President of Intellivisit. “As the number of confirmed cases increases, it is vital to find those that are in the greatest need of care and guidance, and our intelligence-driven platform has been designed to do just that. It is a testament to our team’s abilities and commitment that this solution was able to be deployed so rapidly – they are the unsung heroes of the story. ”
An instance of the self-assessment solution is already being used in the state of Wisconsin to successfully triage patients with concerns of potential exposure or infection.
