Deltapath, a leading cloud-based communication provider announced it will be making Acute the company’s HIPAA Compliant healthcare technology app available to the global healthcare community for free. The decision was made in response to March 15, 2020, CDC issued updated infection control guidance for healthcare settings impacted by COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel (new) coronavirus.
Through Acute, providers have different modes of communication to facilitate the sharing of information, best practices, and strategies among healthcare professionals. For instance, healthcare professionals are able to answer calls from their colleagues and deploy immediate action in the critical moments that directly impact a patient’s outcome right from their mobile device.
“We knew we had to make the decision to do whatever it would take to make this technology readily available at no cost because communication and collaboration are key in stopping this outbreak. I hope that by doing so our healthcare providers will be better equipped to work with others, learn from others, and respond to the overwhelming demand caused by COVID-19,” explains David Liu, founder, and CEO of Deltapath.
Deltapath will also provide communication access through its conferencing platform that comes equipped with Dolby Voice to allow providers to communicate with patients and other healthcare professionals remotely. The conferencing bridge supports daily briefing and debriefing calls and translators can be invited to participate to assist non-English speaking patients. Additionally, in an emergency, healthcare professionals can use Push-to-Talk. This feature allows caregivers to engage in instantaneous voice communication with a group of other caregivers with the push of a button.
