When hearing digital inequity we think about access to internet and digital platforms, like smart phones, tablets, pc’s. But the digital divide in healthcare goes beyond the disparate access to those listed. The existing boom on digital, mostly synchronous, health solutions are not tailored to equally engage the entire community. Think about the seniors, the culturally diverse individuals, those with lower digital literacy or the ones concerned about privacy and safety of their health information; they are left behind and what does that mean? Those who are most in need of these vital health services are often least able to access them.
Knowing that a holistic, equitable inclusion model is necessary to provide true community health services, the Althing with its qualified, portable clinic model sets a new standard in proactive health care. By utilizing the only purpose built, safe and secure engagement platform, Phrazer/Kitsune, that offers a patented method for full population coverage, it brings vital health services directly to our communities. GeaCom's clinical division, Althing, is a reinvention of health access that proactively adds health professionals, services and benefits not only to rural and outstate communities.

In a pandemic, it isn't in control until it is for everyone. This was true for diseases North America effectively inoculated for and now the challenge of "everyone" is more complex. The low literacy and non-english speaking challenges are significantly higher than in the 1930s and 40s and now the tsunami of misinformation is a compounding factor.
Communication problems were a contributing factor in 7,149 cases (30 percent) of 23,000 medical malpractice claims filed between 2009 and 2013, according to the report, published by research/analysis firm CRICO Strategies.However, researchers said the statistics they compiled are only scratching the surface, as there are surely numerous communication-related patient harms that did not lead to malpractice claims.
CITE 2020 overcomes the communication challenges and brings an effective weapon to the war on misinformation, ushering a new era is equity.
While health systems have been propelled into navigating the demands of the acute COVID-19 surge, the question about how to handle the “new normal” afterwards becomes pressing. This pandemic forced tremendous change on process, payment and policies, and further evolution of healthcare delivery is inevitable. Fundamental changes to healthcare require novel solutions to meet the demands of the new paradigm. GeaCom’s CITE solution plays an integral role meeting these demands for a modernized, equitable and efficient care process. Here’s how:
The demand for equitable solutions:
The current push for Civil Rights and equity in our communities creates a demand in healthcare for equal engagement across demographies, which conventional methods simply can’t meet. With Phrazer/Kitsune, all patients are engaged equally regardless of age, gender, language or literacy level. For the first time, quality and continuity across the entire patient population is accomplished. CITE Solutions empower patients to actively progress their care and directly populate their chart with unmatched accuracy levels. Furthermore, CITE Solutions eliminate unconscious bias and medical error due to communication barriers. It is the only proven journey solution for full population coverage that brings patients and staff closer together.
The demand for safe and secure virtual health solutions:
The boom for virtual health solutions was soon followed by an awakening to security and safety flaws and scalability limitations inherent to consumer devices and point solutions. GeaCom’s medical grade hardware not only exceeds infectious disease standards, it also offers novel virtual health features for safe, secure and effective patient/staff interactions.
The demand for efficient and scalable solutions:
Improving efficiency of care without compromising quality remains one of the largest challenges for healthcare facilities. While conventional methods require a “1:1” patient/staff ratio, Phrazer/Kitsune’s Multipath Realtime Messaging (MRM) feature enables a never before possible “1: many” ratio with audio alerts to staff, direct charting into the EHR, notifications to alert boards and more. The MRM feature ensures effective resource coordination, top of licensure performance and staff process adherence leading to operational excellence that can only be achieved with CITE Solutions.
The demand for cost effectiveness and novel revenue pathways:
Traditionally, point-solutions and repurposed consumer devices have cluttered up departments and induced a huge burden due to cost and frequent updates, upgrades and maintenance. Consolidating point solutions becomes a necessity for cost savings and operational excellence. Phrazer/Kitsune has been proven effective as a means to consolidate language services, patient entertainment, survey services and more -- all while offering a lower cost of ownership. This combination not only alleviates the budget, but also increases revenue leading to an unbeatable ROI.
COVID-19 forced tremendous changes to healthcare operations and patient-staff interactions. The pressing need for videoconference solutions (synchronous engagement) combined with temporarily relaxed regulations for HIPAA, Civil Rights and ADA had non-medial solutions enter the healthcare market with unqualified consumer devices and services. The appetite for digital AV solutions remains strong while limitations and downsides start to occur - the requirement of high-performance networks, expensive staff resources, inequitable access across demographies, and most importantly the inability to scale. Furthermore, asynchronous interactions utilizing digital forms, web pages or digital education have been proven ineffective and expensive.
But is there a medical grade platform that allows equitable, effective and scalable synchronous and asynchronous engagements? Yes, there is!
Phrazer/Kitsune, the only FDA designed and qualified, medical grade engagement platform, combines safe and secure audio/video conferencing capabilities with equitable, effective CITE engagements and other features. The patented Multi-path Realtime Messaging (MRM) feature provides novel efficiency and resource coordination benefits that no other solution offers.
The change forced by the COVID-19 pandemic brings a tremendous opportunity to rethink care delivery and evaluate the longterm benefits of Phrazer/Kitsune as a journey solution for equity, efficiency, top of licensure performance, continued innovation and economic enhancements. Use the virtual health trend as a catalyst for sustainable care model transformation with Phrazer/Kitsune. The empowering capabilities for patients and staff will reshape the traditional patient-provider interactions and operational performance of healthcare facilities.
