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 notable improvement from this study laid the groundwork for advancing tele–endocrinology programs. Some highlights include:

Through telemedicine, it is possible to extend access to underserved markets – drastically reducing the burden on patients, increasing the frequency of visits, and ultimately improving compliance.
The same methodology applicable to rural markets is equally valid in urban areas. Shortages in endocrinology specialists are extending periods between appointments beyond desired timelines. Busy schedules, lack of transportation, and missed appointments further extend 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 valuable time of office staff and office space. Decrease resource demand 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 check-ins. Through virtual visits, providers can monitor patient progress while decreasing the burden on the provider and patient.
Lab results contain sensitive information and should ideally be handled 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.
