Today we released another Microsoft Teams starter kit, this one specifically designed for the healthcare industry. The Healthcare at Home template helps improve patient care by providing care coordination and communication between first-line healthcare workers.

Home care is a critical component of our healthcare industry. In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, technology is critical to fulfill the needs of these mobile teams.

The "Healthcare at Home" starter kit provides home care workers the benefit of information at their fingertips, so they can quickly access schedules, swap shifts or check patient records. For example, these can include medication schedules, medical records or exam results. Deploy it today to create a coordinated home care system, from one centralized hub.

Proceed to installation

You must be a tenant admin with app catalog write permissions to install this template, as it needs to install resources in SharePoint.

What's included in the "Healthcare at Home" starter kit?

The starter kit includes important features so workers can focus on collaboration and care, rather than technical aspects. Additionally, installation is fully automated and completed in less than 20 minutes. Since deployment starts within the BindTuning App, you must create a BindTuning account before you start.
