Due to affordability, convenience, and efficiency urgent care centers are seeing increased demand for lab testing. Urgent care centers can provide a higher level of service using telemedicine for reviewing lab results while allowing patients to be where they are most comfortable, their home.
Urgent care facilities are becoming more frequently used as a primary care alternative. This change is resulting in longer patient relationships and increased demand. 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.
Quality follow-up care is essential to patient wellness. However, urgent care proviers face the hurdle of asking patients to revisit the office for follow-up appointments or they are forced to follow up via phone calls, which are not reimbursable. For scenarios that don’t require an in-person examination, telemedicine paves the way for a better experience while removing hardships for the patient.
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.
