COVID-19 Care Coordination from Halo Health

Halo’s mobile communication platform integrates with EHRs to deliver COVID-19-related alerts, including notification to virtual care teams when a virtual patient is in the cue and ready to be seen, and notifications to other clinical teams when bed capacity issues arise. Halo also integrates with 3rd-party scheduling solutions to ensure that urgent messages are routed to the right person at the right time, without having to know who is covering a specific role or team at the moment. For example, Halo users can simply message the “Infectious Control Specialist On Call” or the “High-Risk Transfer Team” without having to know who is covering those roles/teams – the Halo platform automatically routes messages to the correct people at any given time using sophisticated role, team, and schedule-based logic. Schedules can be managed within the Halo platform itself or sourced from 3rd-party solutions through Halo’s integration.

The Halo platform is a reliable, HIPAA-compliant, mission-critical mobile communication platform for health systems and government agencies. It unifies all communication channels (text, voice calls, alerts) in a single, easy-to-use mobile application. It serves as a scalable tool for coordination during pandemics like COVID-19 to streamline individual and team communication. Halo is an AWS cloud-based mobile and web platform and is easy to set up and use with little to no training. If a user knows how to text, the application will be intuitive.
