VidyoHealth’s VirtualSitter is designed for hospitals and clinics that need turnkey solutions to connect providers with patients and their families within an in or outpatient setting. Unlike other clinical solutions on the market, VirtualSitter is scalable, flexible, and can be integrated into an existing network of audio and visual equipment. Clinicians can easily observe multiple patients at the same time on the same monitor from any location.

VidyoHealth for Acute Care

Staffing shortages have hit rural hospitals and clinics especially hard. Add to this skyrocketing expenses, falling reimbursement rates, lower volumes, and increased regulations and it comes as no surprise why so many rural healthcare organizations are on the verge of closing.[1]

  • 46 million Americans live in rural areas[2]
  • 25% of people living in rural areas say there are times when they can’t get the healthcare they need[3]
  • There are just 39.8 physicians for every 100,000 people living in rural areas[4]
  • 25% of the nation’s 1,430 rural hospitals are at risk of closing. [5]

VirtualSitter Use Cases for Rural Hospitals and Clinics

VirtualSitter makes it easy to access patient records, including notes from previous care providers, giving them a complete picture of the patient’s health without having to rely on the patient’s memory. VirtualSitter also allows patient images and screenshots (related to symptoms or injuries) to be saved on the patient file, which makes future reference faster and easier. In the early stages of patient admittance, care providers can access these records and assess the best course of action for the patient’s care plan more effectively.

Standard/Special Transfer

Depending on the results from the initial assessment, patients may need to be transferred to a larger hospital in another location, creating multiple challenges for the patient, including the need to travel long distances to those facilities. This can cause immense financial burdens and time constraint issues for the patient. Those without the resources to make the trip suffer from a lack of access to the experts they need. With VirtualSitter audio-visual technology, rural patients are able to access the best, most appropriate providers and specialists when and where they need them. The rural care team can collaborate with experts regardless of location and include family members when determining the patient’s care plan.

Vital Signs Monitor and Control

Providers can observe patients 24/7 with VirtualSitter observation capabilities. The VirtualSitter, observation screens enable clinicians to remotely monitor up to 16 patients simultaneously. With around-the-clock focused monitoring, clinicians are better able to catch early signs of deterioration in patients before they progress too far. Due to staffing shortages in rural communities, nurses are already stretched thin. VirtualSitter works to empower rural nurses with the tools they need to make their lives easier while also enabling them to provide more effective, efficient care.
