Connecting the Bedside to the Webside: Virtual Nursing as a Service

Nursing shortages, patient acuity increases and an uptick in behavioral health challenges have created a perfect storm in healthcare. Nurses are being stretched too thin, constantly asked to do more with less. This environment is forcing hospital leadership to think differently about how technology can help create a new model of care delivery. To combat this workforce crisis, AvaSure has partnered with Equum Medical to introduce the Nurse Elevated Care Model – an augmented care environment where a virtual team provides video-based support to the bedside care staff. With the power of the EMR and system levels oversight, the virtual nurses are not limited to being unit level resources, but instead valuable assets for patient flow across the enterprise. All available on the trusted, existing AvaSure platform. Join us to learn how, together with the Digitally Enabled Workforce of Equum, we can care help health systems reduce labor costs while liberating their bedside nurses to provide elevated, hands-on patient care.
