Helping caregivers deliver 10 million minutes of digital care

How are welfare providers adapting to a world in which face-to-face contact between clinicians and clients, as well as between colleagues, has drastically reduced? As this example from Germany shows, video conferencing can play a pivotal role in maintaining essential care connections.

At StarLeaf, we’re convinced that every workplace should focus on people – and that’s why we’ve made it our mission to connect people quickly and easily, no matter where they work.

A great example of this approach is happening right now in Germany. StarLeaf is supporting charitable institutions and diaconical welfare providers – a specific type of care provider associated with the Christian church – to adapt to the new ways of working. How? By providing a simple and secure communications solution build around ultra-reliable video conferencing.

As Germany has faced successive lock-downs and other local restrictions, more and more care facilities have used video conferencing as part of their day-to-day work to connect with each other and with their patients.

Proven under stress

For Kaiserswerther Diakonie, a diaconal organisation, StarLeaf is bringing the the organisation and its clients together, increasing access to healthcare services that might otherwise have been inaccessible.

In their words, “In the current situation, many employees of the Kaiserswerther Diakonie work from home. StarLeaf offers very good support for mobile working, as entire teams can use it for fast and easy communication and collaboration – no matter where each person is.

StarLeaf also opens up new possibilities for employees at the Florence Nightingale Hospital (a hospital run by Kaiserswerther Diakonie) to work together regardless of their location: for example, for daily coordination in the pandemic and within crisis teams, or for efficient communication across departments to ensure that every-day processes run smoothly.”

Diverse use cases

Kaiserswerther Diakonie is taking full advantage of the many ways in which StarLeaf enables easy and secure collaboration, including:

  • Coordinating admin when people are working from home
  • Enabling tumour boards and other expert conferences to take place remotely
  • Delivering virtual counselling services in the areas of pastoral care, family and addiction services
  • Supporting the delivery of seminars, training and courses for professionals
  • Helping remote teams to work flexible hours.

In fact, it’s estimated that StarLeaf has helped deliver around 10 million minutes of digital care in Germany. All with the enhanced security and industry-leading reliability that makes StarLeaf the natural choice for remote care providers everywhere.
