The Advantages of Precenodith eMedicine Video Conferencing Platform
- Better Access to High-Quality Care
For senior living communities or patients in rural areas, telehealth nursing improves patient care by breaking down the physical barriers to reach them 24/7.
- Manage Chronic Conditions Better
For chronic illnesses such as diabetes or CPOD, remote patient monitoring can lead to more regular contact between patient and nurse. That leads to better management of care.
- Reduces Risks
With telehealth nursing, patients avoid the risk of infection from other patients when visiting a doctor’s office or hospital. And because they communicate from home, they avoid the risk of having an accident while traveling, especially during bad weather conditions.
- Saves Time
Patients receive on-the-spot care via video chat, instead of waiting for their next appointment, wasting time traveling, or sitting in a waiting room.
- Saves Money
Regence Health Plans reports that consumers save an average of $100 per visit when using telehealth instead of in-person office, urgent care, or emergency room visits. The cost savings are associated with medical claims, mileage and wait times in traffic and the waiting room.
- Reduces Trips to the Hospital
Giving a senior living community the ability to connect to a doctor, nurse or specialist in real-time can eliminate the need for transport to the hospital. Studies have shown that approximately 60 to 70 percent of all nursing home transfers to the hospital are unnecessary. Also, many senior living facilities don’t have a doctor onsite 24/7 so telehealth has become a vital option.
When a common or less acute medical issue happens on weekends, holidays or other times when the doctor’s office is closed, there’s no need to wait to schedule an appointment. Telehealth nursing care help is just a click away.
- Keeps Caregivers Connected
Telehealth for seniors empowers long-distance caregivers to take an active role in their loved one’s care. By being able to sit in on video conferences with healthcare providers, they can stay in the loop and ask the important questions. They can even monitor their loved one’s health conditions from afar through remote patient monitoring. Telehealth brings peace of mind to both the caregiver and their loved one.

How Does It Work
Your first question is probably what is this going to cost and how can I pay for it. Ill cover all of that and much more in this video.
The initial investment in the equipment and its installation varies greatly, from $2,000 to $10,000, depending on the features and functionality of the solution you choose.
There is an annual maintenance costs as part of your contract, which pays for upgrading your infrastructure and software and keeping your technology up to date. A small subscription fee will be applied, and Data overage services may also apply. If you compare our costs with others, I think your find we are one of the most if not the most affordable solution in the industry.
These are needs that are typically much more expensive for you to maintain yourself –or if you use a larger provider and costs that you might put off despite your lagging technology.
For businesses that wish to equip conference rooms, huddle rooms, remote workspaces and executive offices with video capabilities, this is your best solution. For those of you who have held virtual meetings with many unique users – as opposed to one “user”/camera for a full room – you know the connectivity and quality pitfalls you can suffer.
PRECENODITH manages your bandwidth when hosting video calls, which helps you cut down on internet expenses. Because Precenodith hosts your conference calls, you only need enough bandwidth to support each video connection – about 1 Mbps download / 500 Kbps upload speed per device. If you hosted the video connection yourself, you’d have to support every device in the meeting, which could require download speeds up to 50 Mbps. This is a big reason why you have experienced quality problems in the past. (The maximum number of meeting participants will vary from provider to provider).
It’s also important to note that the Precenodith cloud-based video conferencing subscriptions are scalable, giving you more flexibility. You will not pay the same rate as a large enterprise that has much more extensive needs. As a small business, you will pay for what you use, and you’ll also be able to scale your video conferencing needs as your business grows.

Current Status of the Industry
With the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the United States, nursing homes are adhering to the CDC’s guidelines for vulnerable patients, such as limiting visitors and outside consultants. These measures are crucial as coronavirus has most seriously impacted older people and people with pre-existing conditions.
Eight out of 10 deaths from COVID-19 in the United States have been adults aged 65 and older. In the well-known case of Seattle, the disease ravaged a nursing home facility, resulting in 25 deaths and infecting 129 residents. Dozens of the facility’s employees also tested positive, and subsequently spread the disease to other communities.
For this reason, more and more skilled nursing facilities are turning to eMedicine to maintain patients’ continuity of care. EMedicine allows patients to continue receiving critical ongoing treatment, including chronic treatment. Precenodith status as essential medical personnel within Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) ensures that providers are able to continue treating patients at bedside, though when necessary, are able to utilize Precenodith’s eMedicine platform to continue treatment delivery without in-person visit.
Thanks to Medicare waiver 1135 and the passage of the CARES Act, more and more facilities are able to take advantage of eMedicine. Many states along with Washington DC have elected to expand the use of eMedicine to combat the coronavirus outbreak. It is projected that more states will act, and that more nursing homes will incorporate eMedicine appointments with specialists to help limit the spread of the virus among the older persons under their care.
COVID-19 New Rules for Telehealth and Payments
New Medicare rules help more patients access eMedicine
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently broadened access to eMedicine services during the COVID-19 pandemic with the 1135 waiver. This gives patients more options to see a doctor online rather than travel to a hospital or clinic, thus limiting exposure to the virus.
Under the new waiver, Medicare can pay for more eMedicine visits, including from doctors, nurse practitioners, clinical psychologists and licensed social workers. physicians are in high demand to treat patients electronically, as many of their patients reside in skilled nursing facilities.
Before this waiver, Medicare could only pay for eMedicine on a limited basis, such as when a patient lives in a rural area without access to clinics. The new rules also state that the HHS Office for Civil Rights will waive penalties for HIPAA violations against health care providers that provide eMedicine services in good faith to patients through the eMedicine HIPAA platform provided by The Precenodith Group. These new rules allow elderly patients to access their doctors without traveling, which makes both them, and caregivers, safer.
Elderly patients at home and in skilled nursing facilities should use eMedicine for most of their medical needs when possible, unless they start experiencing dangerous symptoms from COVID-19 such as extreme shortness of breath and prolonged high fever and other COVID-19 symptoms designated by the CDC.
Why eMedicine is important for older patients in skilled nursing facilities
With shelter-in-place orders across the United States, and hospitals cancelling appointments and elective procedures, there is more need than ever for eMedicine—the demand is skyrocketing. And providers are moving to meet the demand. Precenodith Wound Physicians recently announced an expansion of its eMedicine program:
While eMedicine is not a substitute for bedside care, Precenodith’s technology provides a platform for patients and at-home health providers to interface with specialists to improve patient outcomes—while also protecting all parties from COVID-19 infection.
Physicians that work with nursing home facilities are a great benefit to the facility, patients and families alike. Working with an organization like Precenodith helps reduce rehospitalizations, improves healing times and saves tens or even hundreds of thousands of healthcare dollars.
Physicians work with skilled nursing facilities to develop treatment plans, consult and guide patient treatment and educate nursing staff. The physician may visit a facility once per week in-person or via eMedicine and becomes a trusted and consistent member of a patient’s care team.
As Precenodith has expanded EMedicine offerings during the COVID-19 crisis, it is a great time for nursing homes to take advantage of eMedicine to treat patients’ chronic wounds.
EMedicine to help flatten the curve of the novel Coronavirus in the U.S.
During a pandemic that largely affects older people like the novel coronavirus, now is the time for everyone to help slow the growth and flatten the curve. This prevents hospitals from being inundated with coronavirus patients, which then taxes medical supplies and puts healthcare workers at risk.
Social distancing and eMedicine are keyways to keep patients and healthcare workers safe. Patients will get the treatment they need without visiting clinics or hospitals, limiting exposure.
Precenodith is working hard to increase access to eMedicine while providing the utmost care to the elderly in skilled nursing facilities. To learn more about services offered by Precenodith, either at bedside or via eMedicine, visit us here.
