Electronic health record provider American HealthTech has made available a new CPSI COVID‐19 Toolkit. Created in partnership with technology innovator QliqSOFT, the capabilities can help alleviate the strain providers are facing because of COVID‐19.

The free toolkit offers healthcare providers remote care options for providers via video chat and secure texting tools so they can address ongoing care needs of residents amidst lockdown protocols. Video chat tools are also included to help residents stay virtually connected to their families.

“Our residents have not been out of our facility for appointments since March 13,” said Rob Skelton, administrator for MS Care Center of Alcorn County, which conducted a pilot. “The CPSI COVID‐19 Toolkit allows them to stay at our facility and still see their doctors — no extreme weather, no travel challenges and most importantly, we can reduce their exposure to COVID‐19.”
