“For over a decade TelASK has been an integral component of the post discharge follow-up of our Acute Coronary Syndrome, Cardiac Surgery and Heart Failure patients. Most recently we are collaborating on a mobile app that will track the progress of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation patients. We are happy to recommend TelASK. They are very creative and easy to work with.”

“My team at the Montreal Chest Institute (MCI) originally adapted and piloted TelASK in home support of 50 COPD patients. Soon thereafter we began offering TelASK as part of a real-life project to all 300 COPD patients of our clinic. We had previously achieved enviable results with our self-management intervention program and case management “Living Well with COPD” at the MCI. The results of the two-year project with TelASK were astonishing. For severe COPD patients followed by TelASK the incidence of hospitalizations and visits to the day hospital further decreased by 25% and 33% respectively. We have appreciated working with the TelASK team. They are very professional and focused on the advancement of care. We would not hesitate to recommend TelASK to your organization.”

Medical University of South Carolina implemented an "opt-out" tobacco dependence treatment service supported by TelASK.
Treatment specialists used the TelASK rounding app to document patient assessment and TelASK automated patient engagement solutions to provide motivational messaging, track medication usage and quit progress. Smokers who needed extra help were "warm transferred" to the state quit line or back to the hospital-based tobacco educator.
