Over the past few decades, telehealth has become increasingly popular. Telehealth can offer a number of advantages to both patients and care providers:
Telehealth is a cost-effective alternative to in person health care visits.
Patients report positive experiences with telehealth.
This research illustrates how telehealth can increase access to care for patients, and that telehealth interventions are effective for patients. The team at Invisible-Care developed services based on this research in order to better serve clients. Invisible-Care harnesses the power of telehealth to provide remote attendant care services through a simple text message. All clients receive a smart tool that is tailored to their needs. This can include promoting for daily activities, medication reminders, and virtual calls to a PSW. Invisible-Care ensures that your client has access to the services that they need 24/7.
