Jacksonville, FL (July 24, 2017) Continuwell, a telehealth software and services company, has partnered with the Jacksonville Chapter of Children’s International Summer Villages (CISV) to provide a nurse call line free to their participants. CISV Jacksonville is a nonprofit that helps children develop skills to become informed, responsible, and active global citizens to make a difference in their communities and the world through international summer camps.
CISV offers international programs for children, starting at age 11, as well as a variety of local programs in Jacksonville. Continuwell set up a line for CISV so that the leaders managing the children who participate in CISV’s Jacksonville chapter have a dedicated phone number that they can call if they have a medical symptom or question. Their parents are also able to have some peace of mind, knowing that their children have a medical professional to talk with, should any symptoms arise.
Camp Director, Caroline Isaksson, found that the Continuwell service was extremely helpful when a camper suffered from a very bad stomach ache for a couple of days. Since this child was from another country, they wanted to avoid the expensive complication of having to go to the hospital. Since the camp leaders were not sure what to do for the child, they called a Continuwell nurse who was able to help the camper with some home care advice to treat the stomach ache.
“We appreciate the services and support from Continuwell,” said Lynn Buff, CISV Jacksonville President. “Having easy and free access to the nurses has made the children and their parents feel better and has prevented unnecessary medical expenses, allowing the children to focus on building new friendships.”
Donating this telehealth service to CISV Jacksonville helps to accomplish Continuwell’s mission to better the lives of all people by improving access and communication about health, benefits, and resources. Continuwell and its team are dedicated to providing more people with quality access to healthcare.
In addition to a telehealth nurse line, Continuwell also offers a customizable enterprise platform that empowers employees by giving them easy access to company resources through a mobile application (app). Employers are also able to engage their members by push notification and event reminders. Continuwell’s nurses are trained to know what resources each company has available to different employee groups and educate them to make the best decision for a path to care. Continuwell takes the guesswork out of employee benefits.
