In the ever changing world of healthcare there are advances at every turn and new technology is continuously deployed to help provide the best care possible. Within the world of home care, the use of new technology has become vital as more and more patients and families choose the option to receive care in their in own homes. As the demand for these services increases, Hartford HealthCare at Home continues to look at new and innovative ways to provide high quality care to the people and communities we serve.
During the COVID pandemic we have found the need for technology paramount to our ability to continue to provide services to our patients, as it has forced us to limit the number of staff who are allowed to enter a patient’s home. We are able to accomplish this by using technology to help perform a number of services, including providing the option of virtual visits through Zoom and other teleconferencing platforms to everyone we provide services to.
