Our TurnKey TeleMedicine Solution
Imagine telling your in-house medical staff that they no longer have to be burdened with routine floor calls 365 nights a year. TeleHealth Solution provides weekend, emergency, and nocturnal coverage when bedside coverage is not available. Our highly skilled TeleHospitalists will work closely with your skilled nursing facility (SNF) staff to deliver quality healthcare in real time via our high-tech Turnkey TeleMedicine Solution carts. We know you worked hard to get your patients to your skilled nursing facility (SNF) and we will work tirelessly to keep them there. Our goal is to avoid costly trips to the Emergency Room during nocturnal and weekend hours when your providers are not in-house. If your post acute care patient does require an Emergency Room trip, we will continue communication with the ER physician and will coordinate care with them in hopes of transitioning care back to your skilled nursing facility (SNF), resulting in lower readmission rates (RTH). TeleHealth Solution provides continuity of care for residence. Your nurses will speak to the same TeleHospitalist through the night until your in-house medical providers are present. Our Turnkey TeleMedicine Solution comes with no equipment costs, a low monthly retainer fee and a low per incident charge.
A New Standard In Post Acute Care
If after initial evaluation and management the post acute care patient requires transfer to the Emergency Room, our care does not stop thanks to our Turnkey TeleMedicine Solution. Our TeleHospitalists will provide direct communication to the Emergency Room physician and if appropriate, a plan of care will be discussed to expedite the patient’s transfer back to the skilled nursing facility (SNF), preventing any further trips to the hospital and resulting in lower readmission rates (RTH). We also ensure adequate follow-up care by placing a dictated report in the patient’s chart so the day provider has a summary of events.
Lower Readmission Rates (RTH)
Readmissions are costly, put post acute care patients at risk for complications, and are largely preventable. Our TeleHospitalists understand the distinction between management that requires inpatient hospitalization and what can be treated in your skilled nursing facility (SNF). Having lower readmission rates (RTH) can result in your skilled nursing facility (SNF) saving a substantial amount of money.
Why does TeleHealth Solution Provide Hospitalist coverage in Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF)?
A bedside hospitalist knows the difference between which post acute care patients need to be admitted and managed in a hospital versus which patients can remain comfortably at your skilled nursing facility (SNF) and receive post acute care. With our Turnkey TeleMedicine Solution, we are able to help lower readmission rates (RTH) at your skilled nursing facility (SNF) considerably.
This is why TeleHospitalists are the most appropriate physicians to be on call for your patient’s needs.

Nocturnal coverage can be a hurdle for any hospital and TeleHealth Solution meets the challenges of your hospital whatever they might be. Your post acute care patients will receive real-time diagnoses and treatment at night from expert TeleNocturnists. Our on-call virtual Hospitalist will manage your patients throughout their shift until they are handed off to one of your daytime in-house doctors or our daytime TeleHospitalists. Our nocturnal coverage will lower readmission rates (RTH) to larger hospitals and in turn increase your hospital’s census. Our nocturnal coverage also helps reduce your physician burnout and attrition by handling everything from floor call, to admissions, to running code blues and more at night or during day shifts.
