CDW and Caregility Partner to Bring Inpatient Virtual Engagement Solution to Every Bedside
CDW Healthcare, the dedicated healthcare organization within CDW, and Caregility, an enterprise telehealth market leader dedicated to connecting care for patients and clinicians everywhere, announce a new strategic partnership. The companies have teamed together to expand their virtual care capabilities, including Caregility’s transformative new Inpatient Virtual Engagement solution (IVE), which offers the industry’s first cost-effective option for bedside hybrid care delivery at scale. Inpatient Virtual Engagement will be showcased in the Caregility Booth #1402 at ATA2022 in Boston from May 1-3.
CDW Healthcare serves an established provider base, working with a broad range of hospitals and health systems across the U.S., as well as many premier healthcare institutions in the U.K. and Canada. Its wide range of proven solutions and services helps provider organizations to build, refine and grow their virtual care strategy and technology infrastructure – from the hospital to the home.
“Partnering with Caregility brings an innovative new dimension of hybrid care to the inpatient setting. As healthcare providers reimagine the ‘Hospital Room of the Future,’ we’re giving them a brand-new option to help overcome pervasive staff shortages and burnout, ease clinical workflows and improve the experience for every patient in every room and every bed,” says Elliott Wilson, Chief Virtual Care Strategist, CDW Healthcare.
Powered by the award-winning Caregility Cloud virtual care platform, Caregility’s IVE solution facilitates hybrid care right at the patient bedside and across all acuity settings. It combines medical-grade telehealth endpoints, cloud-based software and sophisticated device management into an affordable, subscription-based Solution as a Service. At IVE’s core are three purpose-built components including the company’s new Access Point of Care System (APS100) for lower acuity patient settings, a first-of-its-kind administration portal to centralize multiple virtual care programs, and a fleet management tool for governing thousands of medical-grade telehealth endpoint devices. Health systems can readily scale up or down from one to all beds, depending on the level of acuity needed.
IVE helps facilitate a breadth of clinical workflows, including virtual specialty coverage, tele-rounding, tele-nursing, and tele-observation to address staffing shortages, streamline patient care, and enhance clinical collaboration. The solution can assist with earlier detection of deteriorating patient conditions, enhancing health systems’ ability to support rapid response aimed at improving patient outcomes. IVE also fits into the growing trend of patient engagement, providing patients with timely access to their clinical team, interpreters and family members to reduce anxiety and speed the recovery process.
“Our partnership with CDW extends the value that we create for our mutual healthcare customers by supporting hybrid care delivery that complements standard inpatient care plans and practices. Together, we aim to help providers improve clinical outcomes, achieve better operational performance and integrate transformative technology solutions into their long-term strategic initiatives,” adds Caregility Chief Strategy Officer Pete McLain.
