Near Me video consulting can be used to reduce exposure to coronavirus, by enabling residents, tenants and clinicians to consult remotely.
Scenarios where video consulting may be beneficial in homes include:
- To protect residents from potential exposure to coronavirus from visiting clinicians in situations where non hands-on care can be given.
- To avoid transporting residents to hospital for outpatient type clinic appointments.
- To maximise clinician capacity by avoiding travel time.
