Vesta Healthcare is a clinical services program and virtual care platform dedicated to connecting caregivers (professional, informal, paid, and unpaid) and care recipients with the rest of the clinical care team. Vesta partners with home care agencies, health plans, and providers to help high-needs seniors age at home comfortably and safely with a focus on improved health outcomes and reductions in avoidable hospitalizations and emergency department visits. This is accomplished by leveraging the insights from caregivers in the home and connecting those insights with additional clinical data to help providers anticipate changes in condition before hospitalization becomes necessary.
COVID-19 is particularly challenging for the high-needs members that Vesta Healthcare serves. In response, Vesta is continuously adding new features to its easy to use virtual care platform. Features include a mobile app to support our members and their caregivers, COVID-19 related education and symptom screenings tailored to our members and caregivers’ needs, Medicare remote patient monitoring and chronic care management programs, secure video visits, and 24/7 access to our nurses. Vesta Healthcare is dedicated to its mission to extend care into the home and enable caregivers, members, and providers to stay connected when in-person care is not available.

Dirty clipboards, heavily used kiosks and tablets, and patients in close proximity are a source of contagion(s) in patient waiting areas at medical clinics. Front desk staff interact with patients, handling forms, pens, patient ID, insurance and credit cards etc.

Starting before the patient’s arrival and continuing after they leave, Yosi’s end-to-end contactless on-boarding solutions shifts all patient registration functions outside the waiting room pre-arrival, keeping staff and patients safe at a distance.
