24-7 Nurse Triage Services

Reduce Unnecessary & Costly Emergency Room Visits with 24-7 Nurse Triage Services

Immediate access to a RN 24/7 connects individuals with the right level of care when every minute counts.

We believe helping people receive the right level of care at any time and in any place is a critical driver in lowering health care costs and improving patient engagement. With Conduit’s 24/7 Nurse Triage Services, we partner with employers, health plans, physician practices, and health systems to provide a 24/7 nurse-first model where callers have immediate, timely access to a registered nurse.

Conduit’s nurse call center solutions give patients and providers peace of mind that an experienced nurse will assess the caller’s symptoms to determine the right level of care, at the right time, and in the right setting for their needs. Research shows that callers who had the intention of visiting the emergency department for a low acuity condition were less likely to feel the need to do so after speaking with one of our nurses. When needed, our nurses can also expedite care.
