Medcity gives a very succinct review about Practice Unite, how it works, what it does:

“One of the interesting things about Practice Unite’s platform is that it considers different levels of communication intensity. A request for a consult may be more urgent than, say, a notice about a staff meeting. But the idea is that by receiving the notice on a mobile phone it’s likely to be taken more seriously with a faster response time.

In addition to outpatient care, the makers view the platform as an effective way to communicate with caregivers in post acute care facilities such as nursing homes or rehabilitation facilities. One goal is to reduce unnecessary re-admissions by catching potential problems early or avoiding the need to go to the hospital altogether. For example, caregivers could transmit an image of a rash to a physician to ascertain whether it is serious enough for an in-person trip to the hospital.”
