Jennifer Everhart, chief clinical officer for Hospice of Davidson County, says:

“We’re very excited to offer this new technology to all of our patients and their loved ones. Patients in our community may have family members or loved ones located in other cities, states or even countries and this technology keeps them up-to-date with real time information concerning their loved one’s medical care allowing them to be a part of the care plan for the patient no matter their location. The app is very user friendly and also allows patients and their loved ones to have real time communication with the hospice care team at any time of the day or night allowing us to intervene before complications arise.”
