TeleScreening is a telemedicine method using high-resolution videoconferencing technology over the internet, to create remotely accessible searchable recordings of standardized pre-discharge evaluations of patients going from hospital to an alternate level of care. Evaluations are performed and recorded onto a server by trained clinicians from the TeleScreening station. Potential receiving facilities such as subacute, rehab and long term care nursing homes can make admission decisions based on remote access review of these video-on-demand recorded pre-discharge assessments without physical travel of screening teams, and associated time delays for discharge from the hospital.
