SilverVue Tablets Bridge Rural and Metro Areas for Post-Acute Care Choice
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANDY, UTAH – November 17, 2015 – SilverVue®, a provider of hospital patient transitional care and telemedicine technologies, announced today that it has partnered with William Bee Ririe Critical Access Hospital (WBRH) in Ely, Nevada to feature SilverSearch™ for patient choice in post-acute care (PAC) transitions.
A remote public, not-for-profit, critical access hospital (CAH) and rural health clinic, WBRH collaborates with other hospitals, transferring some patients 250 miles to the University of Utah Hospital for example, where patients may continue on to a PAC in the Salt Lake City area.
Matthew Walker, CEO of WBRH, commented, “If a patient is complex and requires services outside of our CAH expertise, a patient may be relocated as far as Las Vegas or Reno, Nevada, Salt Lake City or St. George, Utah to receive needed care.” He added, “Our case managers will be able to provide patients with SilverVue tablets that have information about PACs anywhere in the U.S. and help them to navigate through these transitions.”
Designed by case managers for case managers, the SilverVue searchable tablet directory helps patients choose their transitional care by filtering their choice of transitional care agencies anywhere in the U.S. Patients may select specialized care services, enter a zip code to locate facilities within a desired radius of their home, and choose their preferred insurance provider. SilverSearch displays real-time information that empowers patients to make the preferred choices most suited to them.
