At DocsInk we understand that COVID-19 overshadows anything previously seen or experienced throughout the modern history of the world. Fears of both the known and unknown continues to wreak havoc on even the healthiest populations around the globe. Every individual is impacted, causing us to rethink the way we live, work, and care for one another. Due to this, new solutions for each have bombarded the healthcare industry with Telehealth being one of the number one buzz words.

Recently, the leading topic throughout the healthcare industry has been the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care. Lowering the costs of care and improving health outcomes are still vital goals. However, healthcare professionals must now focus on finding new ways to deliver medical care when treating patients face-to-face is not always safe or possible making Telehealth the most viable solution.

These new and daunting challenges prompted the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to issue regulatory waivers and guidelines. Telehealth is at the forefront of preferred and recommended treatment options. It uses interactive electronic communications to provide clinical services to patients in lieu of in-person visits.

Uncomplicating Telehealth

Telehealth is an effective alternative to brick and mortar office visits, when quick to adopt and easy to deploy. Healthcare heroes are working tirelessly to care for patients with acute and chronic conditions in the toughest of circumstances. Their technology, then, must be an uncomplicated and reliable solution. It must streamline their efforts and connect care teams to their patients, when and where they need it most.

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Virtual Check-Ins work in tandem with telehealth. These are effective methods to impact patient care during the pandemic. DocsInk, a leading healthcare communication technology, delivers these services in a uniquely simple and secure manner.

Practices around the nation benefit from the ability to virtualize their practice in minutes using DocsInk’s One-Tap Telehealth Solution. Our secure system lets patients use audio or video, and within seconds become linked to their providers. No need to download software or applications. Yet, it has all the systems in one place to create a seamless workflow for full continuity of care.

Telehealth Benefits

Videos provide greater insight into problems patients have trouble explaining. Now they can be used as part of an electronic patient care plan and imported into health information exchanges. And because they are secure, they can be shared with care teams and caregivers.

DocsInk integrates an appointment dashboard and scheduler. It offers secure messaging features, and the billing/charge capture functionality differentiate the solution. It’s the best way to create a seamless workflow for streamlined and reimbursable visits.

Patient monitoring is now a critical component of any successful telehealth solution. DocsInk’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Solution, also known as Remote Physiological Monitoring, relays real-time patient data back to clinicians . Particularly in the middle of the health crisis, medical providers rely on RPM to monitor a patient’s pulmonary function, temperature, blood pressure, and other vital changes in symptoms and disease progression.

The ability to easily launch a Telehealth session between provider and patient enables RPM data to become actionable. Expedite critical medical decision making. Change treatment plans and medication management. Help patients avoid preventable declines in their health status.

CMS has recognized RPM to be such a critical component to patient care that they changed their regulations. Patients with acute conditions and those suffering from one or more chronic conditions are now allowed to receive these services.

DocsInk is more than just a telehealth solution. The Virtual Care options, such as automated Check-Ins and Customized Surveys, give clinicians the unique ability to monitor their patients and improve their overall health and well-being.
