American Telemedicine Provides Link+ to Home Healthcare Agencies

American Telemedicine provides Link+ to home healthcare agencies during COVID-19, to keep caregivers and patients safe during this unprecedented pandemic.

As the delivery of healthcare continues to shift outside traditional settings, we, as providers, need to focus on how to manage and keep patients engaged at home, while preventing hospital readmissions.
The Link+ is an innovative smart home platform that integrates key medical devices in a patient’s home and securely collects and transmits vital biometrics in real-time. The data is collected and stored in the HIPAA-compliant portal. Physicians, home health Administrators, caregivers, and family members can have a total comprehensive view of the patient’s overall health. They also can generate and customize monthly reports on the secure portal.
American Telemedicine’s Link+ is a cost-effective solution for daily patient monitoring and is quickly becoming an indispensable tool for many home healthcare agencies and physicians. By allowing access to these home services, the number of home visits are reduced along with the healthcare delivery costs. Thereby, optimizing doctors, nurses, and home health agencies time. This creates significant revenue and referrals.
The Link+ technology uses a 4G Smart Home Gateway that seamlessly incorporates key medical devices in a patient’s home, eliminating the need to download an app or use a tablet. This wearable device allows the medical provider or agency to conduct a video or audio call directly to the patient via their Link+ device. The patient can wear the Link+ around their neck and take it with them wherever they go. It has fall detection, GPS location, medication reminders, and triggers alerts for early intervention.
Patients report feeling “better taken care of “and have “total peace of mind in their own homes”, according to Ed Salazar. “The Link+ is a complete wellness platform that should be in the home of every individual with an underlying medical condition. Physicians can bill Medicare and private insurance for remote patient monitoring and telehealth visits,” says Ed Salazar, a Respiratory Therapist for over 40 years and VP of American Telemedicine.
The Link+ HIPAA-compliant telehealth device supports and enhances current diagnoses and prescriptions, manages many chronic diseases, supports medical staff by conserving PPE and ensuring that our hospitals do not become overburdened during the current health crisis.
