LEXINGTON, N.C. – (Feb. 26, 2020) – Hospice of Davidson County recently completed the launch of a telehealth platform for its patients and families utilizing technology through TapCloud providing additional access to the Hospice of Davidson County care team between visits.
For three months, the nonprofit hospice provider has offered this optional service connecting its patients and their families located across the county, state, and country.
The TapCloud app, that can be downloaded on a smart device, allows direct communication with the patient’s clinical care providers. In addition, permitted family members and loved ones can access up-to-date communication daily. The app also allows the care team to speak directly with the patient and/or family and provides daily care plans, instructions and medication reminders.
“We’re very excited to offer this new technology to all of our patients and their loved ones,” said Jennifer Everhart, chief clinical officer for Hospice of Davidson County. “Patients in our community may have family members or loved ones located in other cities, states or even countries and this technology keeps them up-to-date with real time information concerning their loved one’s medical care allowing them to be a part of the care plan for the patient no matter their location.
“The app is very user friendly and also allows patients and their loved ones to have real time communication with the hospice care team at any time of the day or night allowing us to intervene before complications arise.”
Hospice of Davidson County cares for over 160 patients every day in a variety of locations including private homes, long-term care and skilled-nursing facilities and at the Hinkle Hospice House.
