Aceso Virtual Care
It is important to ensure that your staff has tools in place to minimize exposure to COVID-19 and maximize the reach of available resources. Aceso’s Virtual Care Module provides a safe and effective strategy for treatment and communication between patients, the care team, and other hospital staff without contributing to the spread of illness or disease. This module integrates existing telemedicine (bi-directional video and audio) systems with the in-room television and a patient’s own mobile device to allow for seamless video communication without the need for mobile carts. From virtual consultations to scheduling appointments, care providers can continue to deliver the exceptional care that patients deserve while avoiding the risks associated with direct contact, such as the spread of infectious disease and shortages of personal protective equipment.

MD Consult and Physician Rounding
Aceso Virtual Care allows bi-directional initiation of non-diagnostic consultations between patient and physician. Physicians can initiate a virtual consult with the patient to discuss test results and treatment plans, and/or patients can notify clinicians that they would like a virtual consult by sending a REQUEST through the system.
In addition to nurse call systems, Aceso Virtual Care enables care team members to communicate via video with patients. Our system is interoperable with nursing staff and other critical care team workflows for efficient communication without having to enter the patient room.
Hospital staff that typically enter the patient room to provide important services can also utilize Aceso Virtual Care for direct communication with patients. Examples of staff who can initiate virtual calls include but are not limited to: Dietary, Pharmacist, Case Management/Social Work, Spiritual Caregivers, Event/Activity Planners, Virtual Education and Classes.
Discharge, Concierge, Environmental and Financial Services
Providers can now optimize the discharge process using video communication to ensure patients and family members understand what is necessary for a healthy recovery once they leave the hospital. Environmental services can use this technology to communicate directly with patients or guests about adjusting the room temperature or if the room needs to be cleaned. Patients can speak with a hospital concierge to schedule follow up appointments or transportation.
For patients needing language interpretation, Aceso Virtual Care can provide patients with on-demand access to video translation services. Patients can request their preferred language and customize their personal preferences.
Family and Friends
Aceso Virtual Care enables personal videoconferencing with family, friends and loved ones through the use of the hospital-room television. Just saying “hello” or “I love you” are now possible via video communication. Remote members of the patients support team and loved ones can now participate in shared decision making and be informed of the patient’s status and what the next steps are in the care process.
Monitoring, eICU and Surveillance
In the unfortunate circumstance of a pandemic or widespread infectious disease, Aceso Virtual Care provides care team members with the ability to continue monitoring patients without having to enter the room. As a result, clinical staff can surveil and respond to immediate changes in a patient’s medical status in a moment’s notice.
