Telemedicine Improves Patient Access To Care
There have been some key changes to Telehealth as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic emergency. These changes directly impact both healthcare providers and patients.
The AMA reports,
"Effective March 6 and throughout the national public health emergency, Medicare will pay physicians for telehealth services at the same rate as in-person visits for all diagnoses, not just services related to COVID-19. "
This means that telehealth is likely covered by your insurance carrier. Patients can now afford to receive care from doctors in rural areas, on the go and most importantly, at home.
If you need to expedite the implementation of a telehealth solution in order to respond to an emergency need, justmiine can help.
Our HIPAA-compliant smart technologies, built by doctors, help physicians implement Telehealth services in their healthcare practice. We are here to expedite healthcare organizations innovating faster and more successfully. From scheduling to real-time, audio-video communication, telemedicine connects physicians and patients face-to-face.
Use technology to supports physical distancing efforts. Safe, secure telemedicine calls reduce unnecessary visits and can curb the exposure to and transmission of infectious diseases.
