Innovaton 2018 seeks to discover innovations that help you configure virtual services 2.0
Fundación Teletón has a dream: the construction of the future Telereabilitation Hospital, which will allow them to extend the coverage of their current distance service programs: "Telethon in your Commune" and "Telethon in your Home".
"The idea is that our processes, reception, contact with users, therapies, what we do face-to-face today, we will do it in a virtual context," says the head of the Telethreading Service Telethon, Rodrigo Cubillos , on the structure of the upcoming Telethon that will be held on November 30 and December 1.
"Telethon in your House" seeks to improve skills and training in the rehabilitation of caregivers, parents and families through content and educational programs. The goal for this year is to expand the offer of tablets to 380 distributed in the 14 Institutes and close the year with more than 18 thousand calls.
A virtual hospital
To bring this dream closer, the Innovaton 2018, held in partnership with Claro Chile, which took place this weekend, focused on finding technologies to move towards a more robust 2.0 platform that helps improve and expand attention, such as the activation. voice monitoring, body movement and student sensors.
This is the first phase of what will be the Telerebilitation Hospital in the future.
This project seeks to reach patients through web platforms and applications that can be accessed from devices such as tablets, smartphones, notebooks and computers connected to the Internet.
In this way, multidisciplinary professionals can perform remote care, which will benefit families living in areas farther away from rehabilitation institutes, complementing the Telethon in your Home program.
"This is one of the pillars of Telethon as a strategy for the coming years, thinking that we have a population with growing needs and as an institution, we are reaching a certain level of growth in professionals and also in physical institutes … it is a way to go further and provide more continuous attention through technology. "
Cubillos summarized the importance of these advances in the present and future of the institution. "For most people, technology makes things easier for them, but for people with disabilities, technology makes it all possible for them."
