Telemedicine, Coronavirus, & Your Practice
March 22, 2020 By Practice Growth Pras
Many Americans are confronting a new reality in the face of a national health crisis that has had a systemic impact on virtually all parts of society. As health care professionals, we know you have been acutely affected by the dramatic consequences of the COVID-19 virus.
But where do we go from here?
We want to guide our clients away from the uncertainty and anxiety surrounding the current situation, in order to focus on the future and how we can move the field of health care forward. As the world braces for unprecedented changes in daily life, business owners in the medical field should also be mindful of how these changes can be embraced in a way that helps provide the care that their patients deserve.
In the video below Doctor Multimedia Co-Founder and CFO, Pras Murthy, provides insight on how medical health professionals can leverage the communicative power of the internet to connect with patients. Known as telemedicine, this technique has been shown to overcome barriers to health services caused by distance between patient and provider, access to reliable transportation, and lack of available providers.
Telemedicine increases access to care. Distance and travel time between patients and care providers can limit access to care. Fortunately, telemedicine can overcome geographic barriers to healthcare, especially for specialized providers. Telemedicine can be particularly beneficial for patients in medically underserved communities and those in rural geographical locations where clinician shortages exist.
Some of the benefits of telemedicine services with Doctor Multimedia include:
Provide live video consultations that you can bill for while you & your staff work remotely.
Stay in touch with your patients and communicate with visitors to your website to book more consults.
Contact us with any questions and we’ll send a personal reply.
We bill month to month with no contract so you can stay in control of your service as your needs evolve.
With the changes to our daily lives growing more significant, telemedicine can be the answer to keeping health care providers and their patients connected. While the trajectory of the pandemic is unknown, you can do your part to help blunt the curve and mitigate the effects on our communities by providing telemedicine to your patients.
We strongly urge all of our clients to consider the benefits of adding telemedicine to their practice. To learn more, please click here.
