Lexington Health Network’s Telehealth Platform “LexConnect” a featured Case Study at LeadingAge.com

Lexington Health Network’s Telehealth platform “LexConnect” is a featured case study at LeadingAge.org.

LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) focuses on accelerating the development, evaluation and adoption of emerging technologies that will transform the aging experience.

The case study reports how Lexington Health Network leverages the Curatess Open Telehealth Platform to manage after-hour changes in condition across all ten Lexington Health Network skilled nursing care facilities. The telehealth platform connects remote nurse practitioners with comprehensive access to care, which reduces the need to call 911, and care setting transfers. By managing patients in place, Lexington Health Network improves organization outcomes and limits financial penalties associated with high care setting transfers. Patient care benefits include a more nurturing and comfortable patient experience, avoiding stress related to ambulance transfers and peace of mind that 24/7 medically supervised care is available at any Lexington Health Network location.  LexConnect is a unique resource only available at Lexington Health Network.

The case study in detail is available for viewing here.

Lexington Health Network is excited to see the increased use of the telehealth platform and the amazing teamwork to provide outstanding care to patients when they need immediate assistance.  For more information about Lexington Health Network or our “LexConnect” Telemedicine program, contact 630.458.4700 or visit https://www.lexingtonhealth.com/telemedicine/.
