UPMC launches telemedicine startup for nursing home patients

From Modern Healthcare:

Pittsburgh-based UPMC health system this week announced the launch of a telemedicine software company that will help patients reach doctors during off hours. The move is aimed at reducing avoidable hospital admissions among nursing home patients.

The wholly owned UPMC subsidiary, Curavi Health Inc., will provide nursing homes with telemedicine software and equipment so nurses and patients can consult University of Pittsburgh Physicians’ geriatricians on evenings and weekends, according to a UPMC statement released Thursday.
