IoChat Tips for Healthcare (1-5)

Tip Nr. 1:

How to lower your institution's costs?

There is a major advantage for your institution over the classical approaches by using IoChat: face-to-face interaction. With a live, two-way video and data link on your smartphone, everything will change. Your goal is to make your portals attractive and simple to use for patients, enabling them can take advantage of it. If you add a live chat button to your website you allow your patients to communicate directly with you. Save your staff time by having them consult with each other virtually. Even set up support groups for willing patients. Integrate IoChat into existing systems. All that and more with IoChat.

 

Tip Nr. 2:

How to lower your patients' costs?

Well, that is simple and well known. A patient that doesn't have to make a trip to a physical location and uses a convenient video consultation is a patient with more time, therefore with lower costs and improved service - a happy and healthy patient.

 

Tip Nr. 3:

How to provide better patient support?

Supplement classic ways of contact with IoChat. Let patients contact the person they need in complete privacy, be that a nurse to book an appointment, their personal physician or a specialist in another department. Everybody loves a personal touch!

 

Tip Nr. 4:

How to use IoChat for internal institution communication?

Wish to communicate with your team? Of course, you can call them using your phone, or just physically find them if needed, but you can use IoChat instead. Benefits?

- One and only communication channel

- Communication logs and online presence - know instantly who communicates with whom and when regardless where you are (at the office or at home)

- IoChat rooms (sometimes you just need to send anyone somewhere and it doesn't matter who... publish your issue into an IoChat room and someone will take care of it)

 

Tip Nr. 5:

How can you improve internal organization with IoChat?

There is no need to have different systems: one for communication between patients and the medical staff, another for internal communication and another for surveillance. Integrate IoChat with your existing systems (HL7, OpenEHR). One fits all! In case your team has their smartphones with them, you can always communicate and collaborate with them.

 

Tip Nr. 6:

Tip Nr. 6? In the heading, there were only 5 tips!

Well, we pick up the tab for this one!

 

What happens in a medical institution stays there!

- Do you know where a sensitive conversation is routed through and stored?

- Do you control the whole conversation?

- Do you know if users credentials and IP addresses are hidden from outside world?

- Are sure that the solution you use is 100% bullet-proof? Do you have the source code?

YES for IoChat!

IoChat uses a server installed and maintained in a location of your choice!

All communication is under your control, isolated, and all clients are on your local network. However, if you wish to connect clients to the Internet (outside of the institution), the server also needs an Internet connection. Privacy and security, however, are still retained since the users communicate with each other directly or through your server.
