VitalTech – AT&T Business unite to advance Telehealth Services

Virtual Care and Remote Patient Monitoring market leader VitalTech has recently inked a partnership with AT&T Business. The collaboration will enable the two enterprises to offer free telehealth services for 60 days to business clients, such as hospitals. The services are deployed via the VitalCare® platform.

Through this partnership, VitalTech and AT&T will be able to offer patient-oriented care at the right time and the right place. The telehealth services will be empowered by AT&T’s data analytics and secure connectivity expertise, alongside the combined innovation capabilities of both companies, resulting in a dependable end-to-end solution for Virtual Care.

Telehealth represents a lucrative solution for virtual diagnosis as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread rapidly. These services can help ensure the safety of high risk and senior populations, by facilitating remote medical appointments. Both the Department of Health as well as the United States President have strongly promoted the adoption of telehealth as the ideal preventive measure to ensure public health.

The recently passed Telehealth Government Funding Package for the novel coronavirus has helped lift constraints on telehealth Medicare payments, so that beneficiaries can undertake remote consultations with their doctors, to avoid risk of exposure in hospitals and clinics. This could lead to a further expansion in consumer access, marking a step closer in the pursuit of quality care and cost savings.

VitalTech CEO, James Hamilton recently expressed the company’s elation at partnering with AT&T for the rapid deployment of the Telehealth & Virtual Care platform to healthcare customers. He stated that this technology will empower medical workers and healthcare systems to combat COVID-19 pandemic through virtual means.

AT&T Business EVP- CMO, Mo Katibeh also reiterated the significant role of Telehealth in containing the COVID-19 spread and stated that the company is dedicated to ensuring optimum connectivity between people during this global crisis, particularly front-line healthcare workers.

Patients and physicians can interact through call, video chat or messaging, using the HIPAA-compliant VitalCare platform. Furthermore, physicians can monitor vitals, medication intakes and nutrition reported by patients, and offer triage care when required.
