Looking for a communication system that provides 24/7 support from providers
Long-term care facilities need to communicate back and forth with physicians, nurse practitioners and facility staff throughout their busy days and nights. The real challenge was streamlining internal communications between facility staff and the providers for efficient and responsive 24/7 support.
Getting the entire team up and running in a specific patient’s care journey
There was a need for patient-centric communication whereby everyone on the team could be involved with the same level of awareness in a specific patient’s care plan. Communicating in the context of specific residents has become more of a necessity in long-term care.
Facility staff needed to comply with HIPAA requirements
Long-term care facilities want their teams to stay connected with each other, outside partners and eventually their resident families. What they wanted most is the ability to securely communicate in a single virtual platform without compromising patient confidentiality.
Instant provider & staff engagement
Hucu.ai enables real-time communication between facility staff and providers when at the facility or during after-hours.
