Providing access to the MediTelecareGo! platform and virtually connecting at-risk senior residents with outside medical practitioners.

MIDDLETOWN, Conn., March 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- MediTelecare, the nation's leading provider of behavioral telehealth services for the skilled nursing, post-acute, and long term care markets, is now allowing all of its skilled nursing facilities to utilize their televideo technology and platform for any medical provider in the wake of the Coronavirus Outbreak. The goal of opening access to MediTelecare's platform beyond behavioral health services is to help these facilities be better prepared to provide more immediate care and connect their residents with the outside medical providers they need without exposing their at-risk population.

MediTelecareGo! is a digital hub designed to equip partnering facilities with a secure online platform, televideo workstation on wheels, and a tech-library of helpful resources, which enable the facility staff to link residents to outside medical practitioners virtually. The company is now providing this expanded use of its platform during the Coronavirus crisis to all contracted facilities and medical practitioners within their network who wish to help reduce the risk of outside contact to patients and residents by using telehealth connectivity. This is especially helpful to long-term care facilities who are now limiting outside access to protect their vulnerable senior population, yet still need to deliver specialized care for these residents.

CEO and Founder of MediTelecare, Ed Mercadante, commented, "This technology suite is a hub for patients and residents who will need medical support and treatment as many Skilled Nursing Centers try to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus while still working to provide around the clock care. MediTelecareGo! is the platform that can help these facilities to provide a 'care in place environment' with the goal of helping to reduce hospitalizations and improve outcomes."

The company is rapidly rolling out its MediTelecareGo! technology and has provided an FAQ on telehealth access at http://www.MediTelecare.com.
