|Video Chat for Emergency Medical Calls to 9-1-1
|One of the most dangerous tasks for healthcare providers and first responders is coming into contact with people who show symptoms but may not have the pandemic disease or others who have the virus but do not show symptoms. Several companies make software to allow first responders and healthcare providers to conduct quick and secure video conferences with 9-1-1 callers and those showing symptoms. The 9-1-1 telecommunicator or responder/provider texts a link to the caller/patient’s smartphone. The patient clicks on the link to establish the secure video call. When the call ends the link also expires. No app is required by the patient to make the call.
