This value-added service is offered to patients at no charge to help with the stress associated when a loved one is ill or hospitalized. The service allows patients or their family members to update loved ones simultaneously without repeated phone calls or e-mails. Each web page is secure and password protected. Private CarePages are not open to the general public. Friends and loved ones are invited to register to visit the patient CarePage at their convenience and respond with ongoing messages of support.
Detailed information for patients is available on uwhealth.org.
Since patients receive so much information when admitted to the hospital, it is important that our caregivers help make patients aware of this wonderful service. TLContact, the company from whom we license this service, indicates that the following patients are historically good candidates for CarePages:
- Intensive care (pediatric, adult, TLC)
- Heart and Vascular
