For the last two years, providers at SG Pediatrics have been successfully using healow TeleVisits™ to see patients from home. So when the need for social distancing arose, they already had the tools in place to move all of their appointments online.
healow Telehealth Solutions offer providers more
As the number of cases of coronavirus continues to climb throughout the U.S. and the world, so too does the number of physicians and patients using telehealth solutions. For many healthcare visits — including primary and specialty care, follow-up visits, and quick check-in appointments — telehealth is proving to be an effective tool in promoting quality care during a time of crisis.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, practices are looking for an effective way to treat patients without having them physically come into the office. For Comprehensive Sleep Center, a practice located in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, healow TeleVisits™ have been that option – the practice completely switching to TeleVisits within three days of activation.
Coronavirus is the latest case in point
The resurgence of telehealth amid the coronavirus pandemic is a reminder of the lifesaving role that remote delivery of medical services has always played.
Whether for reducing the risk of infection, delivering care to remote places, or helping with recovery from natural disasters, telehealth is once more proving its value as a critical part of the worldwide healthcare ecosystem.
The rules of the telehealth game may have changed, but you still want to play by the right rules. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights recently announced the waiver of certain penalties for noncompliance with HIPAA regulations.
South Florida practice shows the way
With the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic, medical practices across the nation have been sounding an urgent note — “Get me telemedicine, stat!”
Just how quickly can a practice get up and running with an industry-leading telemedicine solution such as healow TeleVisits™?
A South Florida endocrinology practice using eClinicalWorks, Palm Beach Thyroid and Endocrinology Wellness, enabled TeleVisits on Monday, March 16. Just two days later, Dr. Anna Frish was able to report that 80% of the practice’s daily visits were being conducted online.
Strong roots in the Midwest
Brown Clinic has been in business since 1935, providing comprehensive, quality medicine to the residents of Watertown, South Dakota — with a friendly and down-to-earth attitude that reflects the strong community spirit found throughout the American Midwest.
On March 4, 2020, Congress appropriated $8.3 billion through the “Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020,” to combat the public health threats posed by the spread of coronavirus. The legislation includes $500 million allowing Health and Human Services to temporarily waive certain Medicare restrictions and requirements regarding telehealth services during the coronavirus public health emergency.
Patients are busy. Having a quick and efficient means of setting up an appointment online through healow Open Access® can help you reduce no-shows, keep schedules full, and reduce administrative burdens on staff, all while giving patients the convenience they want of setting up appointments that work with their schedules.
V11, the latest version of our core EHR, is transforming healthcare by providing physicians and medical staff with tools for comprehensive documentation, in-depth understanding, greater value, and higher satisfaction — for users and patients.
Early detection & common illnesses
While the coronavirus outbreak is garnering headlines worldwide and leading to travel restrictions and quarantines to limit its spread, the leading threats to Americans’ health remain what they have been for many years — heart disease, the many forms of cancer, and the garden-variety flu strains that occur each winter.
Before making a reservation, do you go online and read over what’s on the restaurant’s menu? Knowing that what’s on the menu aligns with your expectations will make for a much better experience. The same could be said about understanding the full capacity of the eClinicalWorks EHR and optimization services that can help your practice better achieve its goals.
Getting started is harder – expansion is, too!
Those who have faced the challenge of starting a medical practice — funding, location, staffing, insurance, and building a reputation — might think expanding a practice is relatively easy.
Understanding the importance of your cardiovascular health is key to reducing the chances of contracting life-threatening diseases. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, and adopting a healthful diet alongside regular physical exercise can reduce the chances of contracting the disease.
‘Less’ mindfulness can have more impact
It may be the biggest catch-22 in medicine. Providers understand they could improve their overall well-being if they took time to be more mindful about their daily routines. But many worry that setting aside the time to focus on themselves will cause them to fall still further behind, leading to additional stress that could undo the good that can come from mindfulness activities.
