“Telehospice” is a specialized smartphone app for terminally ill patients and their loved ones that aim to alleviate as many of their concerns as possible. Home care patients can benefit from this hybrid approach, which combines in-person visits with remote monitoring. Expert medical monitoring can be performed at a distance. It’s a great tool for palliative patients to use for managing various symptoms, even in an emergency. HPC Foundation’s team stays in continual contact with patients and their families through the mobile app and the ‘telephony’ service, making it simple for them to ask any questions that may arise.
Family members of patients have easy access to the center, where they may speak with medical experts and get their questions answered. I think it’s a fantastic development for those seriously ill folks. When a patient registers with HPC, they are given access to this service at no cost.
This cutting-edge app is the result of the careful combination of a wide range of useful features for remote patient monitoring, such as 24hr Telemedicine service; Video consultation; Regular follow-up; Updated prescriptions; Chat facility; Image upload; On Call doctor and On Call nurse home visit; Home lab support; Instrument rents; Monitoring and adjusting the dosage of controlled drugs like morphine; Alerts for when chemotherapy is scheduled; etc. It is a method of providing care that emphasizes patient and family participation. Aastha’s telephonic service is used by patients who are unable to use the mobile app.
