How We Will Help Hospitals, Institutions, and Doctors?
TeleNurse Network provides a multi-specialty care team of dedicated nurses ensuring quality clinical support, education, medication management, and more. Our strategy allows institutions to efficiently and proactively manage At-Risk-Populations decreasing adverse events and re-admissions.
High-Risk patients account for 50% of healthcare costs. TeleNurse Network provides the clinical support for continuous care, frequent education, and virtual visits offering clinical oversight of patient’s health and wellness monitoring used outside the conventional hospital/Homecare/SNF setting.
At-Risk patients account for the majority of your patient population. Many of these patients may have a chronic condition but are considered healthy. They require basic engagement, including reminders, and tracking of basic health activities to assure that they remain on the right path.Reduced post-operative co-morbidities with access to specialty nursing care.
How It Works
While still working in the nursing field, Marisela developed TeleNurse Network with the goal of connecting patients to nursing services and reducing barriers to care. Ms. Cigliuti spent over 15 years in hospitals including Hackensack University Medical Center Health System, Mount Sinai Health System, and Hospital for Special Surgery. Her experience includes Stroke/Neurology, Endoscopy, Operating Room, Quality Management, and Same Day Surgery. In response to a growing emphasis on community preventive care, Marisela started a Health IT business to provide Telehealth specialty services and wellness care to private and Medicaid/Medicare patients. Recognizing a deficit in specialty providers, Marisela decided to create TeleNurse Network to blend her healthcare and clinical nursing experience addressing the challenges in today’s healthcare environment. “My passion for nursing has always been a central driver in my life,” said Marisela. “I look forward to advancing the nursing profession with the use of technology to help improve the care we deliver to patients while decreasing healthcare costs.”
