ATLANTA – April 3, 2020 - Trapollo and Cox Business are fully supporting the defense against COVID-19. Combined with our parent company’s pledge to the ‘Keep Americans Connected’ initiative and our expanded broadband options for citizens and businesses to find relief, Cox is committed to the healthcare ecosystem in our country in its effort to scale up to address unprecedented needs in pandemic hotspots.
Right now, our healthcare systems are searching for the best ways to free up hospital beds, to eliminate unnecessary visits and to monitor at-risk or current patients in their homes, as part of their strategies to address the COVID-19 crisis.
This week, Trapollo, with the support of m.Care technology, launched a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solution where healthcare systems can enable their physicians and clinicians and COVID-positive patients to download the m.Care app from the iOS and Android app stores.
This solution with speech-to-text capability is timely because the patient’s own smart device, as well as non-connected medical devices, like thermometers and pulse oximeters routinely found in their home, can be used to help keep medical staff informed of concerning changes to a patient’s condition. When alert criteria are triggered, the patient can use the same app to facilitate real-time video conferencing with his or her doctor.
Additionally, using GPS location capability, healthcare providers can monitor their patients' acuity levels in a specific geography to help identify emerging hot spots and illness levels.
Equally important, where a less critical patient can be actively monitored remotely as the illness advances or post discharge from a hospital, it helps keep hospital beds opened up for the most critical patients.
The Trapollo COVID-19 response leverages an existing “Hospital-in-Home” solution that is currently deployed with one of the largest Integrated Delivery Networks, and is uniquely designed to scale and monitor tens of thousands of quarantined or COVID-positive patients and to help alert physicians and healthcare systems when more acute treatment in a hospital setting is necessary.
Through its ongoing business operations, Trapollo continues to source and deliver tens of thousands of devices to healthcare systems around the country to support both Trapollo’s COVID-19 response and other adaptive solutions developed by healthcare systems to meet the surging patient requirements.
