In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis in Chile, TeleMedCare is working with Fundación Chile to provide the elderly population with innovative technology: a smartphone device designed specifically with telemedicine in mind.
These devices, called Televínculos, are designed to help elderly people in an efficient and user-friendly way. They’re connected to a specialized hub for telemedicine in TeleMedCare Chile, which users can contact just by tapping a button on the touch screen.
Once activated, the user is in touch with teleoperators experienced in managing elderly patients. After making sure the user is not in an emergency situation, the operator can easily connect them with health, rescue, or security services in the vicinity in order to solve the problem at hand.
TeleMedCare’s telecare hub is available for contact 24/7.
