What are the benefits of remote pediatric telehealth?
Leveraging virtual observation in your healthcare system provides many valuable benefits, including reduced costs, improved care, and more satisfied patients. In fact, according to a J.D. Power 2022 U.S. Telehealth Satisfaction Study, 94% of patients and their families who used telehealth services said they would use these services again in the future.

VirtualSitter – Remote patient observation for up to 16 patients
Vidyo offers VirtualSitter, a remote observation system, that allows observers to monitor patients to avoid falls, suicide prevention, ICU delirium, detect motion for orthopedic and amputee patients that may on impulse try to leave their beds. VirtualSitter offers the ability to observe 16 patients at a time with doorbells and alarm triggers. Facing the current nursing shortages, this solution could be a game changer to enable virtual rounding, cut costs, avoid injuries, and give families the confidence that patients are always being observed.
Monitor patients remotely
Continuously monitor patients to assess and trigger potentially life-threatening falls and get the proper care of a child quickly. In addition, around-the-clock observation delivers peace of mind to the children’s parents.
Increase staff efficiency
When staffing limitations are present, expert remote clinicians can monitor multiple patients simultaneously – ensuring care continuity when healthcare systems are shorthanded. If issues arise, onsite clinicians can be quickly notified.
Optimize access to health system resources
Regardless of where healthcare providers or patients reside, patients gain quick access to specialists – reducing the risk of escalating issues and travel costs. Specialists and patients simply join a video conference for more proactive care.
Reduce the cost of care
Harness the power of technology to lessen care costs and increase productivity. Virtual monitoring of children allows health systems to detect symptoms more readily, reducing rehospitalization and unplanned readmission to the hospital.
VidyoHealth for Remote Observation
Pediatric telehealth is an essential aspect of a child’s health. However, caring for a child has many challenges, the least of which include communication between the child and the care team, patient–family involvement, and difficulty for a small child to understand and follow specific instructions. This requires a robust solution that enables remote clinicians to continuously observe children for discomfort or distress and act quickly when necessary. In-home monitoring for immunocompromised children is made safer, and coordinating care across staff, providers, specialists, and patients and their families is as easy as a click of a button. There are no apps to download or complex login requirements. Pediatric hospitals can create a centralized PICU monitoring station where clinicians can monitor multiple children.
