VideoKall Unmanned Micro Clinic in Hospitals
A SOLUTION FOR HOSPITALS TO INCREASE HEALTHCARE ACCESS
In the USA, ACO's and even regional hospitals are building urgent care centers,
and staffing mini-clinics to meet the shift to retail marketing, and more economically serve their constituents,
especially as MEDICARE reimbursements are being shifted more toward wellness and less on pay-for-service.
Deploying VideoKall Unmanned Micro Clinic per location is less than 2% of the cost of an urgent care or outpatient clinic.
Telehealth is a much lower cost solution for the simpler outpatient needs, even where prescriptions may need to be issued.
A SOLUTION FOR HOSPITALS TO REDUCE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT VISITS
In the USA in 2015 there were 120 million Emergency Department visits where patients were not admitted.
Possibly up to 33% of these visits may be categorized as those which could have been treated without the patient
being physically present with a medical professional. That is almost 40 million Emergency Department visits which
could have been eliminated --- if there was an alternative solution. The VideoKall Unmanned Micro Clinic
offers such a solution. It is a small footprint, high-quality construction cabin which can be located in or
near a hospital Emergency Department connected by a communications link to a video triage medical call center
either in the same hospital or another facility. Low priority patients typically have to wait 2-6 hours in busy periods.
Patients can be in/out of the Emergency Department for these conditions in a matter of minutes using a
VideoKall Unmanned Micro Clinic, and some indicate a willingness to pay a premium for the Fast Track service
which our cabin provides. All ambulatory patients can self-check-in and be triaged immediately.
And for hospitals supporting local retail and corporate locations, VideoKall Unmanned Micro Clinic at these sites
would be more economical for them, the patient and the insurance carrier.
