Viewcare develop and supply a full range of integrated telehealth and telecare services to enable safe and effective remote treatment and caregiving as an effective alternative to moving the citizen to a central treatment or care facility.
The technology has proven itself to be safe and effective and both patients and treatment professionals have expressed their satisfaction with the way Viewcare’s technology facilitates their remote collaboration.
Mobile telemedicineViewcare has developed a unique mobile telemedicine platform, which allows ambulance operators to access the services of doctors and specialists at A&E departments and specialist wards by video and audio link to the ambulance when on the move. This allows the right specialist to be present for that time-critical diagnosis which means that the correct treatment can be initiated and the patient taken directly to the right treatment facility which reduces the risk of relocation of the patient during treatment. The presence of a specialist often ensures initiation and completion of proper treatment immediately and may save an unnecessary ambulance ride.
Telemedicine platformPeople suffering from chronic health conditions can benefit hugely from monitoring their condition and associated treatment by measuring key health parameters in the safety of their own home. By sharing these measurements with remote treatment professionals, at a hospital or a community service center, treatment regimes can be adjusted as needed to ensure that the patient’s health condition remains under control at all times. Over time this allows the patient to fully understand how they can control their health situation, re-gain their independence and be less reliant on the help of others. The Viewcare telemedicine platform is perfectly suited for this application and is currently used by community services in Denmark for patients suffering from e.g. COPD and type 2-diabetes.
Viewcare has delivered and runs the telemedicine platform, which is being used in connection to the Virtual Hospital – a huge study on “security of telemedicine treatment of COPD in acute worsening in relation to conventional admission”.
The full range of Viewcare telemedicine services can be deployed in any location in less than an hour. We are currently working closely with Danish community service delivery organizations to develop an acute rehabilitation service delivered right in the home of the citizen as an alternative to either bringing the patient to a temporary care home or admitting the patient to a local hospital. Offering rehabilitation in the home greatly improves the chances of the citizen being able to continue living safely and in full control in the comfort of their own home and this is key to maintaining a good quality of life. This also allows community services to redirect their resources to other areas of need.
