The New Roseland Community Hospital announces a partnership with Tell Health, a mobile healthcare communication platform, that enables providers to securely communicate via video, voice or text directly with patients and their families.

“This app allows the hospital to provide testing results and other patient information quickly and efficiently,” says Tim Egan, CEO of Roseland Community Hospital. “The platform has enabled Roseland Hospital to halve the time and effort spent getting results to patients and when compared to traditional patient portals, it has increased patient engagement 6-fold,” he added.

“The Tell Health service is a very effective and efficient way of communicating with patients in real time,” said Dr. Terrill Applewhite, chairman of the hospital COVID-19 task force.

Victoria Brander MD is an Associate Professor at Northwestern University Medical School and has worked with the app. “I have tried several other communication tools, but none is as easy and efficient as Tell Health. It’s practical and clinically oriented," she added.
