We provide seniors and low-income communities with devices, instructions, and free tech-support to connect them to their physicians via TeleHealth, friends and family using digital connectivity, and wellness tools via apps.

Prevention

Older and low-income patients tend to be more vulnerable and have more complicated medical needs. By giving patients the opportunity to access care, we can prevent possible complications and unnecessary hospitalizations!

CONNECTion

Social distancing has prevented seniors from interacting with others. Patients can also use these devices to connect with their families and friends, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety from this pandemic.

EDUCATION

Some seniors don’t know how to use their devices or set them up. Providing printed out guides and free virtual tech support via email and phone call helps educate seniors and reduce stress around appointments and calling friends/family.

Why is this important?

In the short term, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced millions of Americans to stay home. Even a simple trip to the grocery store or doctor’s office puts patients at risk. However, many elderly patients suffer from chronic conditions and need continuous care. In fact, research shows more than 50% of older Americans have 3 or more chronic conditions. To stay connected to their physicians, elderly people need devices to video-chat. Telemedicine, or TeleHealth, involves both an audio component and a visual component. By providing patients devices, we help keep them home instead of risking infection and death by going to the doctor’s office.

In the long term, TeleHealth use has been proven to:

  • Increase compliance 

  • Reduce patient costs 

  • Decrease hospitalizations 

  • Provide more personalized care 

Additionally, digital connectivity has been proven to:

  • Decrease the loneliness epidemic

  • Increase activeness 

  • Reduce wellness costs
