London, UK, April 9, 2020 -- 8x8, Inc. (NYSE: EGHT), an integrated cloud communications platform provider, announced Bionical Solutions, a healthcare provider, is using 8x8 technology to ensure nurses in the United Kingdom can continue to provide virtual one-to-one care for patients at this critical time.
Bionical Solutions' Clinical Business Unit continues to support patients in the home on behalf of the National Health Services (NHS), however, the current environment means that face-to-face interactions are becoming more challenging whilst patient safety, as always, is at the forefront of all that Bionical does.
Using the 8x8 X Series cloud communications and contact centre solution, Bionical has opened up virtual and video nursing capabilities for all of their staff and patients, allowing them to continue providing personalised care across multiple disease areas virtually. This helps support the transition of patients from hospital to home and reduces the potential of readmissions back into hospital. This in turn minimises bed occupancy to support the influx of COVID-19 patients. Nurses and patients can now safely communicate through text, call, video meetings and messaging apps. Bionical also uses 8x8 technology to enable all clinical contact centre staff to work remotely from home.
