Telemedicine Strategies

Telemedicine offers the convenience of online symptom-checkers with the accuracy of a highly trained medical professional, all from the safety and convenience of your own home.

While the thought of contracting novel coronavirus COVID-19 is worrying, proper containment and control of the illness will prevent its spread and mitigate the more serious effects associated with it. DrOwl is committed to assisting state and federal governments, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and skilled nursing facilities in mitigating risk, containing the virus, and ensuring those afflicted have access to the proper care. We’re achieving these goals through our innovative medical app, which offers the following telemedicine strategies.

Remote Physiological Monitoring

When a patient is in quarantine, it can be difficult for them to access quality medical care. Most health clinics are unwilling or unable to make home visits, as this increases the risk that the illness will continue to spread. With the DrOwl app, patients receive remote physiological monitoring to track their symptoms and state of health. A patient’s temperature, pulse, and oxygen level can all be taken remotely by a nurse. If the need arises for more urgent care, the patient will be informed and can arrange for emergency medical assistance right away.

Patient Outreach

DrOwl has hundreds of skilled physicians and nurses on staff. Along with infectious disease specialists and general practitioners, patients can also access mental health assistance via therapists and counselors. Being in quarantine is extremely stressful, especially when subjected to a constant stream of news and information regarding recent developments linked to COVID-19. Knowing that medical care is just a click away is reassuring, but patients who are experiencing a great deal of stress regarding their conditions can also access a mental health professional when in need of assistance.

Geofencing

Broken quarantine is a major problem. Consider that a single infected person could spread the illness to many others in a relatively short period, given how contagious COVID-19 is. As a result, local health authorities must be notified when quarantine is broken so they can take the proper steps. The DrOwl app also has geofencing capabilities, which creates a virtual perimeter around a quarantined person. If this quarantine is breached, meaning a targeted mobile device has left the virtual perimeter, the necessary personnel will be informed immediately.

Remote Training

Not all caregivers have training in the proper handling of infectious diseases. This training is especially essential to non-medical caregivers working in nursing homes or other facilities. If one patient falls ill and caregivers don’t take the proper steps, they risk spreading the illness to many others. The DrOwl platform provides remote training to caregivers to ensure they’re using the best practices when helping residents within assisted living facilities.

Three-Way Video Chats

Along with conferencing with DrOwl physicians directly, those afflicted with COVID-19 and in quarantine can also include loves ones in their chats. This provides a safe alternative to friends and family from visiting the person directly, which increases the odds that the virus will continue to be spread from person to person. It also allows family members to remain up to date on their loves one’s health status, which provides peace of mind.

We Can Be Your Guide During This Hectic Time

A little reassurance goes a long way when it comes to the coronavirus. DrOwl offers assurance to individuals with the illness, health authorities, families, and caregivers by providing a smart, innovative way to track the virus, monitor patients, and prevent COVID-19 from spreading.
