Health system pieces together ‘virtual rounding’ to cope with pandemic

Nemours Children’s Health System uses multiple technologies to social distance, reduce contact and save PPE.

Nemours leveraged the power of several technologies to create its solution. It is using the VidyoConnect secure app for rounding, team communication and teaching; Epic monitor for remote access to in-room cameras for both the health system’s Clinical Logistics Center and the eICU at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children; and a new app, Milestone XProtect, from any desktop or laptop computer enterprise-wide that enables access to in-room cameras.

Milestone, along with repurposing of the health system’s existing Cisco phone system, enables physicians to remotely examine patients and communicate with parents who may be sequestered in the patient’s room during the COVID-19 crisis.
