Roland Therriault, president and executive vice president of sales at InSync Healthcare Solutions, says it’s important for a forward-thinking telehealth vendor to offer the following: EHR Integration: Telehealth software should provide a seamless experience between patients and providers. The best solutions allow easy appointment scheduling and documentation of care during a patient visit to ease the administrative burden. Otherwise, providers are forced to switch between platforms entering and reviewing information instead of concentrating on patient care.
When it comes to telehealth platforms, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. The health care industry has for years been trying to figure out how to get people to buy into telehealth services. Were users concerned about security? Was it too hard to use? Will older patients be comfortable seeing their doctor online? It turns out that a pandemic was the catalyst no one saw coming.
Every year presents new challenges to healthcare leaders, but 2020 threw a curveball like few others: Covid-19. Over the last 10 months, physician practices and their partners have had to rethink healthcare clinical and billing practices and embrace new technology even when they weren’t ready for it.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Interoperability and Patient Access final rule, along with the 21st Century Cures Act’s interoperability and information-blocking rule, call for streamlining data exchange between healthcare providers, patients, and payers, while protecting stakeholders against “information blocking.”
Since COVID-19 emerged as a major health threat, virtual care has taken off. As many as 46 percent of patients reported in late April that they had used telehealth to replace a canceled healthcare visit in 2020, while 48 percent of physicians said they had started using telehealth to treat patients.
With the Covid-19 crisis in full swing, telehealth use has skyrocketed. In 2020 alone, the U.S. telehealth market is projected to reach $10 billion, marking an 80% year-over-year growth due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
