The coronavirus pandemic has already exacted an incalculable toll, but we likely won’t fully understand its lasting effects on our way of life for years to come. Already it is changing the way patients look at and approach their healthcare.
With the latest update to IMS Televisit, it has never been easier for practices to reach patients for care, no matter where they are. A secure telehealth platform, fully integrated with IMS, Televisit now allows patients to join video calls from their browser with a simple link, no extra log-ins or accounts required.
Continuing to allocate funds from March’s CARES Act, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is providing another $250 million to medical practices struggling with COVID-19.
It can be hard to stay on top of coding updates under normal circumstances, let alone during a pandemic. That's especially true when it comes to Telehealth, telephone visits, and the rapidly expanding coverage of remote care.
Patients have never been more vulnerable. Alongside the obvious health concerns of living through a pandemic, the fear surrounding a global crisis can have catastrophic consequences when it comes to security. Nowhere is that more true than with the growing embrace of remote healthcare. Knowing what to look for in a truly secure Telehealth system can make all the difference when it comes to keeping patients safe.
