Tele-Endocrinology became a validated care delivery method when Dr. Rabia Rheman, University of Tennessee Health Science Center of Memphis, presented findings from a study on tele-endocrinology use for rural patients. The marked improvement from this study laid the groundwork for advancing tele-endocrinolgy programs. Some highlights include:
Large endocrine organizations or hospital employed groups have specific needs, existing technology, and unique workflows. The VisuWell platform is a modular tool suite that is built to integrate with your practice and help you innovate how you deliver care.
Through telemedicine it is possible to extend access to underserved markets. This drastically reduces the burden on patients, increases frequency of visits, and ultimately improves compliance.
The same methodology that applies to rural markets is just as valid in urban areas. Shortages in endocrine specialists are extending periods between appointments beyond desired timelines. Busy schedules, lack of transportation, and missed appointments further extends gaps in care, increasing non-compliance and diminished outcomes. With VisuWell it is possible to optimize provider groups while removing barriers associated with in-person visits. The platform fills a void in patient centered care by providing a cost effective way to stay in front of patients, making it easier to:
Every office visit uses the time of office staff and valuable office space. Decrease demand on office resources by utilizing telemedicine for management of medications, including treatment for asthma, allergies, and behavioral conditions. It is also an ideal solution for refills.
Improve outcomes for patients with chronic conditions and leverage care plan coordinators to provide more frequent checkins. Through virtual visits, providers can monitor patient progress while decreasing the burden on the provider and patient.
Lab results can contain sensitive information and it should be a priority to handle them face-to-face. Endocrinologists can provide a higher level of service using telemedicine while allowing patients to meet from the convenience of their office or home.
The VisuWell platform is equipped with an open API strategy for data sharing and workflow integration with existing clinical and administrative systems. Seamless integration is both critical and necessary to a successful transition to a robust telemedicine program.
The VisuWell app carries your telemedicine suite to mobile devices. Now you can extend organizational branding to your own telemedicine app without the high cost of development.
