INVU for Hospice and Palliative Care

We believe in a future where in-person care and Active Remote Care blend together seamlessly to ensure a more efficient, holistic, engaging patient care experience at lower cost.

“One of my hospice patient’s wife used to call me 3-4 times per week⁠—mainly due to stress. Since [INVU] has been placed at her home, I have not received any emergency phone calls from her. She has used the the Patient Kiosk a couple of times to reach out to me, but mainly she loves the videos and instructions on the device. It really gives her a great deal of peace of mind! Thank you for such a great tool!

⁠— Cathy, Hospice Nurse, Scottsdale, Arizona

“We had our first official [INVU] call tonight and it was a huge success. It was very beneficial to actually see the patient and assess her health while speaking face to face. Makes a huge difference! I was hesitant about this but now am pretty excited about it.”

⁠— Kim, Hospice Nurse, Scottsdale, Arizona
