TripleCare Launches Telemedicine Services


TripleCare, a national provider of telemedicine-based healthcare services to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), announced today the Company recently introduced it services to Asbury Communities. Asbury Communities, a not-for-profit organization that manages eight communities in four states and offers a range of life-enhancing services for seniors, is ranked the nation’s 15th-largest not-for-profit system serving older adults.

Recently, TripleCare launched its telemedicine services at Wilson Health Care Center, which serves nearly 300 skilled nursing residents on the campus of Asbury Methodist Village, a continuing care retirement community in Gaithersburg, Md.

TripleCare’s telemedicine–based approach brings physician coverage directly to older adults during times when community physicians are not on site, such as overnight, during the weekends and on holidays. This is when many hospital transfers from SNFs occur. Incorporating advanced technology with assistance from the community’s on-site nurses, TripleCare’s network of highly trained physicians are able to perform virtual bedside visits and treat residents in place, in real-time. TripleCare’s virtual services make it possible for its physicians to ascertain residents’ conditions and differentiate between those who can be treated on-site versus those who might require a transfer to the hospital.
