My mother was ill for a long time while I was in my residency. There were several frightening, stressful occasions where she would be rushed to the ER, only to find out the issue was something quite simple and solveable. If TeleMedicine had been around, we could have accessed a doctor via audio or video conferencing and saved her—and our family—from the unnecessary stress and fear an avoidable transfer can cause in an already painful situation. While grieving, and later while practicing as a hospitalist, I was always thinking about ways to improve conditions for others in similar scenarios.

TeleMedicine is a win-win for everyone involved: facilities, patients, families, doctors, staff—even the ER. With TeleHealth Solution, our goal is to save lives, save money, and save time. Let us help you improve your facility; for your bottom line and, most importantly, for your patients.

I didn’t start out my medical career thinking about Skilled Nursing Facilities. Throughout my life, being a first generation American, I always championed the American spirit and knew this was a country where anyone could attain their goals. I believed that one of the best gifts in the world was the ability to help others, and dreamed of becoming a physician. So when I graduated from medical school, and stood proudly to take the Hippocratic oath, I thought my dream had come true. But while practicing as a hospitalist, I quickly realized there was a disconnect between my vision and the reality of the inpatient experience.

Watching a frail, defenseless patient curled up in the Emergency Room at 2 AM, no family or friends at their bedside, half covered in a sheet, I knew this was a broken system and that there had to be a better way.

Experiences like those led my partners and me to found TeleHealth Solution. Our technology can bring uncompromising care to patients who can remain comfortably in the convenience of their nursing facility…
