PLANO, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 4, 2020 / iDocsWeb, who last month announced free one month use of its proprietary LTC/SNF specific Telemedicine Platform, today announces that it has added a critical component of Infection Control Stewardship to that offering. This is available to any Skilled Nursing or Long-Term Care Facility and ALF across the United States. iDocsWeb can have you operational within a few hours.
While other telemedicine/telehealth vendors have increased prices and terminated free services all together, iDocsWeb has gone in the opposite direction offering FREE unrestricted access to their complete cloud based telehealth platform to help meet the Government’s latest call for maximizing the use of telemedicine to minimize personal and personnel exposure.
The company’s founder and CEO, Dr. Suresh Nellore MD an Infectious Disease Specialists, has taken this action considering the concerns over COVID-19, more commonly referred to as the Coronavirus. He explained “with this pandemic reaching epic proportions in the United States, it is paramount for institutions to minimize workers’ and patients’ exposure. The use of telemedicine as the name implies will reduce the number of in person contacts that can possibly lead to the spread of this deadly virus.”
Specifically, with Nursing Home quarantines in effect nationwide the iDocsWeb Family application allows for virtual visits between family members or responsible parties with the facility resident.
Concerned physicians can avoid cross infection risks by using the iDocsWeb Provider applications to administer remote treatment to their Nursing Home patients.
iDocsWeb currently has its telemedicine/telehealth platform functioning in Long Term Care, Skilled Nursing Facilities, ALF’s and Doctors’ offices throughout the United States.
