New technologies such as telemedicine help improve health care services. It is important to remember, for technology to work it must work for the people it is meant to help – patients and the professionals providing care. In the past, physicians consulted with patients over the phone, and they may have taken notes during the call. Telehealth was informal at best. Now a telehealth platform provides physicians with the security and organization so that they can actually practice medicine remotely. Telehealth systems allow them to track and share their patient’s health data, document their thoughts and notes, bill patients and get reimbursed by insurance, schedule appointments and more.
The Telehealth platform that we offer uses various solutions including mobile apps and cloud software that allows providers to access information on their mobile medical devices and perform video and voice consultations. Telehealth benefits those in widely spread regions where it is hard to get around, as well as those with tight availability in their schedule. It allows busy health professionals the option of working in the office and out of the office.
Telehealth Services changes the location where health care services are routinely provided.
By partnering with Bluestream Health, Anserve offers Live, two-way interaction between a person (patient, caregiver, or provider) and a provider using audiovisual telecommunications technology. This type of service is also referred to as “real-time” video and may serve as a substitute for an in-person encounter when it is not available. Live video can be used for both consultative and diagnostic and treatment services.
These medical consultative diagnostics include areas such as:
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Home health
- Chronic disease monitoring and management
- Disaster management
- Consumer and professional education
