A Patient With End-Stage COPD in Rural Kansas
Updated: Nov 15, 2018
One of the major benefits of Tapestry Telehealth’s TapestryCare™ program is that it prevents unnecessary hospitalizations for patients in rural facilities that are unable to have a doctor or nurse practitioner on hand 24/7.
As this example from Mary Beth, our nurse practitioner in Kansas, demonstrates, bringing TapestryCare™ to your facility can dramatically reduce unnecessary hospitalizations, even in difficult end-stage cases. From actual notes about the incident:
Mary Beth’s ability to immediately assess the patient’s needs and develop a plan of care to address them saved the patient from a costly and unnecessary trip to the hospital, and also allowed the patient to remain in their community rather than being sent to a faraway city.
