Equum Medical taps Blue Cirrus to help build nursing telehealth network

Telehealth company Equum Medical has selected telehealth consulting firm Blue Cirrus Consulting to help build Equum's new virtual nursing telehealth offering.

The telehealth service will not be a stand-alone product; instead, it will integrate within Equum's acute care professional clinical services portfolio. Equum cited nursing shortages as a motivating force behind the project in the Sept. 13 Equum news release.

"We wanted to design a comprehensive program that recognizes the importance of nursing, that tele-nursing is not a one-size-fits-all solution but a dynamic solution that supports quality, efficiency, patient flow, and nurse and patient satisfaction," Equum Founder and CEO Corey Scurlock, MD, said. "We know providers of care across the country are looking to telehealth maturity models as they begin to get a grasp of where they are going post-COVID-19 and so short of nurses, so we want to hit the ground running. For that, we need Blue Cirrus."
