TripleCare Rolls Out Telemedicine Services within the Ocean Healthcare Network

MHW has learned that TripleCare — a national provider of telemedicine-based healthcare services to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) — has introduced its services to the Ocean Healthcare Network, a network of family owned and operated New Jersey-based healthcare centers.

Effective now, three Ocean Healthcare post-acute care centers in New Jersey began utilizing TripleCare’s innovative telemedicine solution. These include:

  • South Mountain Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, 2385 Springfield Avenue, Vauxhall, NJ 07088
  • Park Crescent Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, 480 N Walnut Street, East Orange, NJ 07017
  • Hampton Ridge Healthcare and Rehabilitation, 94 Stevens Road, Toms River, NJ 08755

TripleCare’s virtual healthcare services are offered at these facilities during times when physicians are not on site, such as overnight, during the weekends and on holidays, when many hospital transfers from SNFs occur. During these times, the Company’s network of highly trained physicians perform virtual bedside visits, treating patients in place, using advanced technology, coupled with assistance from the facility’s experienced, on-site nurses. TripleCare’s virtual services make it possible for its physicians to differentiate between patients who can be treated in place at the local facilities versus those who would require a hospital transfer.

“Introducing TripleCare within the Ocean Healthcare Network is already proving beneficial in reducing ER visits and improving patient care and comfort. In just a short time since the rollout, Ocean Healthcare is indicating that our service is reducing hospital ER visits and improving outcomes of their patients. We look forward to introducing services across other facilities within the Ocean Healthcare Network, based on the successes realized to date at the three locations where services were implemented, and having positive impact on the patients and their families and staff,” said Mary Jo Gorman, chief executive officer at TripleCare.
