Technology solution designed to combat the spread of virus and ensure proper care of those impacted.
DALLAS, TX. — March 11, 2020 — To help hospitals and health systems meet the potential patient-surge associated with COVID-19 outbreaks across the country, QliqSOFT,Inc. is releasing an all-in-one COVID-19 Virtual Patient Communication Kit that provides digital tools for screening and education in line with the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) guidelines.
Each kit includes:
The kit allows patients to receive in-home advice and avoid emergency departments or clinics unless their condition warrants in-person care.
The CDC recommends leveraging telemedicine technologies and self-assessment tools as a way to protect patients.
These secure tools allow patients to review science-sourced education from the CDC and World Health Organization and conduct personal risk assessments much like the clinical decision support programs used widely by clinicians today. Even if patients are asymptomatic and have no known exposure risks they’re better positioned with education and community resources.
"Virtual Communication Kits are the best way to combat the spread of virus while caring for the ones who are already infected.” said Krishna Kurapati, CEO and Founder of QliqSOFT, Inc.
Hospitals interested in QliqSOFT’s COVID-19 Virtual Patient Communication Kit should request more information here. Clinical Support Specialists are on standby to get the solution in place for health systems rapidly.

When thinking about a healthcare emergency preparedness plan, how much does compliance matter in your disaster communications? If your organization is in the throes of a power outage from heavy storms or a cyber attack that’s left your network down, thoughts of compliance may not be top of mind.
Prior to the pandemic, telehealth visits ─ delivering patient-provider visits virtually ─ was an afterthought in the care continuum — ill-regarded and little-used beyond patients in rural areas who had few care choices. Virtual visits comprised less than 1% of all outpatient visits. Private insurers generally follow guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which allowed telehealth in only limited circumstances and paid at 30% below in-office reimbursement rates.
