Emergency Telehealth Initiative For Assisted Living Facilities
Company Provides Telehealth Q Tablet PCs to Minimize Exposure to Coronavirus
SARASOTA, Fla., March 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — During the coronavirus crisis, our nation’s top doctors urge older adults, the most vulnerable, to avoid crowded medical facilities and first consult a doctor virtually if they feel sick. As senior living communities move to limit residents’ exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19), Q Tablet for Telehealth is being deployed to independent and assisted living communities across America to help older adults receive non-emergency care while avoiding risky trips to the doctor’s office or hospital.
Florida-based Constant Companion, a voice and video technology company, announced it will make these Q Tablets available to senior living communities anywhere in the U.S. for a minimal monthly cost. The tablets give the residents and nursing staff secure access to non-emergency care from the comfort and safety of their rooms. The Q Tablet for Telehealth may be rented for a cost of $25 per month including cellular high-speed internet.
The secure, high-speed Q Tablet for Telehealth is pre-loaded with apps from top-rated telemedicine providers, allowing U.S. Board-Certified doctors to make “video house calls” and write prescriptions. Constant Companion will begin shipping the tablets nationwide this week.
“This is a critical time for the health of our nation’s seniors, and we are the technology partner for America’s assisted living facilities from coast-to-coast,” said Mark Gray, CEO and founder of Constant Companion, LLC. “As the infection rate of COVID-19 continues to grow, we are committed to protect residents and staff members in senior care, so they stay safe. We are proud we can move quickly and provide potentially life-saving devices.” Any profits from the device rentals will be donated to charity by the company.
