Virtual observation systems often serve as a first line of defense for at risk-patients, alerting staff to quickly intervene when a patient is attempting to leave their bed, for example.
Virtual Observation can be utilized in acute care hospital settings, behavioral health facilities and transfer centers, as well as in post-acute settings, such as skilled nursing facilities (SNF), long-term care facilities (LTCF), or long-term acute care hospitals (LTACH). This white paper will cover the variety of use cases for this technology and help you figure out how to begin implementing an effective virtual observation solution.
