Banyan Medical Systems was the first to invent the virtual care model, growing and adapting its system through labor market fluctuations and healthcare industry strains. Today, the Banyan virtual care system combines technology with 24/7 virtual nurses and virtual safety companions to provide comprehensive services starting at the moment of patient admission through post-discharge follow-up. Experienced Banyan virtual nurses augment the care of bedside nurses, taking 25% to 30% of administrative tasks off their shoulders to free them up to care for patients. This blended virtual care model was designed by nurses and healthcare professionals to make the most of hospital staff time and effort and has resulted in a reduction of turnover by up to 35%. Ultimately, Banyan is able to reduce burnout, support care, bring insights, decrease cost, increase job satisfaction and improve patient outcomes through this technology + team design.
