Partnership will enable customers to scale inpatient telehealth across the enterprise as COVID-19 pandemic continues Dublin, Ireland: August 3rd , Oneview Healthcare – a care experience company focused on providing digital tools for patients and care teams – and Caregility, a clinical collaboration and communications company focused on providing secure, reliable two-way audio and video communications for any device and clinical workflow in both inpatient and outpatient settings, are announcing a partnership to deliver Caregility’s telehealth applications on Oneview’s Care Experience Platform in the US and Australia.
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing, inpatient telehealth capability is a critical part of the telehealth program for healthcare systems and strategic infrastructure is required to replace the tactical solutions deployed in the early days of the crisis. This partnership will enable customers to scale inpatient telehealth across their hospitals cost-effectively, enabling virtual rounding, virtual consults and virtual visitation by friends and family.
The partnership will initially focus on Caregility’s iConsult Mobile application, designed specifically for the unique requirements of inpatient telehealth. iConsult enables clinicians to connect virtually over a secure, HIPAA compliant video connection to patients. Auto-answer capability enables virtual rounding without requiring the patient to answer a call or a staff member to enter the room to launch the call. Clinicians can invite guests such as family members or interpreters – or both – directly into video calls.
The iConsult app will be offered on Oneview’s Android touchscreen devices, enabling Oneview customers to gain more value from their infrastructure investment and Caregility customers to scale their inpatient telehealth capabilities on costeffective bedside hardware. This is the first step of a “Smart Care” strategy towards the patient room of the future which will enable continuous, autonomous monitoring and real-time connectivity and communication with on-site, remote and virtual care team members.
“The power of the Oneview platform is the ability to deliver digital apps and services at the bedside in a scalable way,” said Oneview’s CEO, James Fitter. “All of our customers have sought virtual care solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic to enable communication with patients. Our partnership with Caregility will allow us to offer an end-to-end virtual care solution, designed specifically for clinician and patient needs. Caregility’s dedicated healthcare focus aligns with our own and we target the same customer segment – leading healthcare systems – making them the ideal partner.”
“This partnership provides a way for healthcare providers in the US and Australia to quickly expand remote observation and interaction with patients while limiting the
need for staff to enter the room,” said Caregility’s President & COO, Mike Brandofino. “We are happy to partner with Oneview to help our customers protect caregivers from exposure while increasing the ability to provide care for patients remotely, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
