TULSA, Okla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mar 31, 2021–

Tools to combat the isolation and loneliness of patients residing in long-term care during the COVID-19 pandemic. That was the number one request of nurses working at Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care’s 11 locations when surveyed late last year.

End-of-life care nurses’ driving desire to connect patients with their loved ones led to Crossroads’ introduction of an easy-to-use video chat application earlier this month.

Crossroads Connections is the name of the program that can be easily accessed using a web browser on any computer or mobile device equipped with a camera and microphone. Crossroads Connections sessions are anonymous and HIPAA compliant. No information is ever stored. All data is encrypted.

“The simplicity of our new video chat platform is impressive,” said Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care Founder and CEO Perry Farmer. “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our nurses to connect their hospice and palliative care patients, living in long-term care facilities, with their families.” Crossroads Connections makes this critical communication possible, seamlessly and confidentially.

Farmer said adoption by hundreds of Crossroads hospice and palliative care nurses throughout Crossroads’ footprint in seven states is expected this spring. He believes the program will have longevity beyond the COVID-19 pandemic as enabling patients to easily connect with family will always be a critical need.
