Primary care represents the vast majority of health visits conducted each year and generates a high amount of follow-up visits. In many cases, the initial visit or follow-up could be conducted more efficiently through a reimbursable telemedicine visit. In-office visits can then be reserved for new patients and issues that might require in-person examinations.
With HIPAA compliant video conferencing, providers gain revenue streams from previously non-reimbursable services. Plus, offices can streamline workflows by migrating away from traditional approaches to handling:
The VisuWell platform helps medical groups initiate BHI through our network of telebehavioral specialists. Now, you can leverage on-demand collaborative care or quickly facilitate referrals, reducing administrative burden while swiftly providing patients with the behavioral care they need.
Stanford Medicine initiated a new telemedicine program in 2015 designed to better serve primary care clinic patients. They found high patient interest in telemedicine services, cost savings, and improved outcomes.
We live in a fast-paced world and healthcare is one of the slowest industries to adapt to an on-demand society. Primary care practices and provider groups are leaking patients and referrals to a litany of competitors, from urgent care centers to healthcare organizations offering a direct-to-consumer telehealth model. Now, you can positively address these issues while creating a better patient experience and streamlining workflows. Integrate VisuWell with your technology suite and start realizing new revenue streams, cost savings, and improved outcomes.
Improve Outcomes in Comorbid and Behavioral Populations
The greatest opportunity for increased revenue comes with after-hours care. Patients have long been receiving care from urgent care clinics or emergency rooms, representing a real case of revenue leakage in primary care. With telemedicine, provider management, and online scheduling, a new level of care and revenue becomes a reality. Practices are adding concierge telemedicine services for patients willing to pay a premium to maintain the expected level of care from their primary care provider.

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.
Every office visit uses valuable time of office staff and 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.
Lab results contain sensitive information and should ideally be handled face-to-face. Primary care providers 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.
