Technology is playing an important role in delivering quality healthcare today. Healthcare professionals including doctors, consultants, and nurses are fully engaged in a radical action plan for improving healthcare all around the world through telehealth especially after COVID-19 pandemic.

Telehealth brings a solution to solve these glaring problems very easily. One of the greatest benefits of telehealth is how it makes communication easy in a remote setting.

How is Hucu able to do all this? Hucu replaces the need for phone calls, voicemails, and texts. ‘channel’ feature in which patients and family members can be sent a message by the healthcare provider all at once. Healthcare teams are empowered to invite or restrict specific family members to reduce noise and improve peace of mind for approved family members.

Solving Communication Problems Among Healthcare Providers And Within Their Organizations
Holding telehealth sessions between doctors and patients really helps break down all barriers of communication. Deploying telehealth solutions like Hucu is that a healthcare organization can improve its workflows and communication cycles within its hierarchy. Hucu can help healthcare organizations communicate and coordinate patient care remotely by facilitating internal communication channels.
In a traditional setting, healthcare team members have to find each other through broadcast announcements in a hospital or contact each other through pagers in emergencies.
Hucu Organizes Communication Among Healthcare Team Members
Hucu can help the entire healthcare organization get ‘organized’ at its workflow level. When doctors are setting up a telehealth session with their remote patients, they need updated information about the patient’s case from the staff or patient’s family members. This is especially true in a Senior Care Setting. Now gathering such information through phone calls requires time. Verbal communication over phone calls can prove erroneous as well.
In such situations, a communication tool like Hucu can allow the doctor to gather information from the relevant staff members and family members in a specific channel in a very organized and coordinated way.
Solving Communication Problems Among Healthcare Providers Across Multiple Organizations and Locations
With Hucu, the doctor can easily gather the relevant consultants in one channel, share the patient status, and communicate a care plan. The plan can then be shared with the healthcare team on the application in which they can post notifications and updates as well. Hucu truly organizes all the steps in telehealth so that communication both within the organization and to specialists and collaborators outside the organization can be improved and quality care can be provided.
Hucu can streamline communication between providers and facility staff by allowing them to communicate in context within each Patient-Channel, with each other in one-to-one direct messaging and within internal and/or external groups through Collaboration Channels. Another amazing feature of “distinctive notifications” helps providers tag each other or tag the entire group.
Hospitals face open shift challenges very often and Hucu resolves this issue by allowing staff members to quickly message shift availability and get immediate response from the staff.
In the world of healthcare, patient communication is still too sparse and often lacks transparency and the personal touch that builds trust in the care team. Telehealth solutions like Hucu are here to change that with distinctive powerful features that can optimize any healthcare provider’s practice.
