Senior citizens are prone to different kinds of vulnerabilities including biological, psychological and social. Problems affecting sensory organs, chronic illness, diminishing cognitive abilities put them at high risk.
Fortunately, technology has advanced to the point that healthcare services can be delivered to the households. This gives an increased sense of security, especially to the elderly. Patients in remote locations also vouch for services like telehealth and remote patient monitoring. This greatly helps in reducing healthcare costs, unnecessary hospital visits and increases access to care and patient satisfaction.
Even during social distancing, family members can stay updated on the health status of their loved ones. Equipo Health allows family members to subscribe for consent-based patient notifications. This helps monitor the health of family members and even talk to the care-givers live!
