Secure, web-based video consultations empower patients to receive medical attention from home
As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises people to stay home and avoid public gatherings, CompuGroup Medical offers its CGM ELVI Telemedicine software free to medical providers.
Looking for ways to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and protect the health of practice staff and the public, medical providers are expressing an increased demand for telemedicine.
CGM ELVI Telemedicine allows providers to collect patient information; share images, vitals, and findings; provide care from anywhere at any time; initiate treatments and therapies rapidly; offer continuous care to immobile patients; and reduce the workload of practice staff—all without the risk of spreading infection.
"CGM is one of the leading eHealth companies in the world," said Benedikt Brueckle, Chief Executive Officer, CompuGroup Medical US. "We are committed to using our position to help the medical community contain the coronavirus, and that's why we decided to offer a free, introductory subscription to CGM ELVI during these initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic."
Call +1 (602) 680-2255 for sales, and ask for details about the status of this early pandemic promotion.
In its community mitigation guidelines to prevent pandemic influenza, the CDC outlined the importance of flattening the curve, or reducing the number of cases and related demands on hospital and infrastructure while slowing the acceleration of the number of cases.
"The response to this program has been inspiring," Brueckle said.
Last week, the United States enacted an emergency spending package that includes $500 million to allow Medicare providers to extend telemedicine services to seniors, regardless of where they live.
"It is our hope that the funding from Congress and our offer to provide an introductory subscription to CGM ELVI electronic videoconferencing at no charge will combine to greatly improve the American response to and containment of COVID-19," Brueckle said.
