Call9 is an alternative to 911 presently operating in Skilled Nursing Facilities (nursing homes). When a nursing home patient has an acute event instead of calling 911, SNF nurses activate Call9. Within moments Call9’s on-site Clinical Care Specialists are at the patient’s bedside and connected, via Call9 proprietary technology, to a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician.
Through this innovative model -- with expedited treatment as well as point of care tests (labs, EKGs, telemetry, ultrasounds, etc.) -- Call9's care helps keep patients in their nursing home bed in more than 80% of activations; saving the healthcare system, and the taxpayer, millions of dollars.
