Facilitating Afterhours Collaboration With Patients’ Family Members
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANDY, UTAH – December 15, 2015 – SilverVue®, a provider of hospital patient transitional care and telemedicine technologies, announced today that it has partnered with North Vista Hospital to feature SilverSearch™ in its patient post-acute care transitions in the greater Las Vegas, Nevada area.
George Wiley, CFO of North Vista Hospital, commented, “Patients needing to choose post-acute care can review their options on the SilverVue tablet with family members when they visit, sometimes in the evening after work or afterhours.” He added, “The on-call case manager can take a SilverVue tablet home and address patient inquiries anytime, anyplace. This enables family members to help the patient transition to the next step in their care.”
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 nationally available. For example, 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.
North Vista Hospital is a 177-bed community hospital that has been serving the greater Las Vegas Valley since 1959. The hospital has put many safety measures in place to increase patient safety and to improve the patient experience, and is implementing SilverVue tablets for case managers to help patients choose a post-acute care provider.
