LEVERAGING TELEHEALTH TO IMPROVE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE
The County Government of Nandi has underscored its commitment to improving health outcomes in the county through constructive partnerships.
She was speaking in her office earlier this morning when she met with a team from HealthX led by Roy Bore – CEO HealthX accompanied by Stephen Smith – HealthX COO, Dr Bradha Karnad – HealthX Chief Medical Officer.
Telehealth services represent an innovative way for providers to connect with patients. With telehealth technology, providers can speak to their patients over the phone or hold video conferences. The program will be trialed at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital before possibly being expanded across the entire county facilities.
HealthX offers an all-encompassing, in-network ecosystem consisting of on-demand telehealth, mobile healthcare units dispatched for house calls, and a high complexity laboratory capable of running most sample panels. The On-Demand platform offers patients instant care and treatment options through best-in-class medical providers who can prescribe medications, order labs, and ultimately route and deliver care to a patient’s home.
The team also paid a courtesy call on H.E The Deputy Governor Dr Yulita Cheruiyot at her office and later toured Kapsabet County Referral Hospital and the Call Center.
