Central hospital to home care units

Tele-consultation inside Kauhava municipality between Kauhava Health Centers/primary health care actors and both (1) Care Homes under Elderly care/Social care and (1) Home Care Unit under Elderly care/Social care.

The purpose with the pilot is to explore /find out/test best arrangements, structures, equipment, etc for Care units' tele-support and consultations. This can also support collaborative learning, professional improvement of staff knowledge and care quality and finally counteract professional isolation and brain drain. The aim with the new tele-support is that social care personnel with responsibility for patients in Care Units (1) and Home Care Units (1), can secure timely interventions through appropriate investigation and treatment in case acute problems arise and follow and revise the care and rehabilitation plan through tele-consultation of skilled health care professionals.
