How do you provide care to underserved patients who have difficulty getting to the office? This was the challenge we were trying to solve at The Clark Clinic. Some of our patients don’t have access to a vehicle or are physically restricted and unable to travel far. But, as most of our community is underserved, we needed to collectively identify a solution to ensure we can serve all our patients.
Telemedicine is transforming healthcare by making optimal use of healthcare resources. By providing an in-office experience remotely, healow TeleVisits lets providers deliver the same high-quality medicine while letting patients experience the comfort and convenience of being at home or on the road. Not every medical encounter requires a physical office visit, and TeleVisits are ideal for pre-op consultations, quick post-op checkups, and many routine encounters. Secure and fully integrated into the eClinicalWorks EHR, TeleVisits are making care easier and more efficient.
Established in 2004, Rainbow Pediatric Center (RPC) has seven providers serving patients in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra, Florida. We work thoroughly at bridging the gaps in healthcare and providing quality healthcare to our patients. Regarding ADHD patients, we knew that close follow-up with patients yielded better outcomes. We noticed that some parents were having difficulty getting children to appointments. Parents did not want to pull their children out of school for frequent check-ups and we were unable to meet the demands of requested after-school visits. This was a big barrier to care.
