eMDs is excited to announce our new, proprietary telehealth solution for Aprima: eMDs Patient Connect!
With 83% of patients expecting a blended approach including both in-office and telehealth visits post-pandemic, finding a solution that will fit into your practice is more important than ever. While the pandemic saw relaxed regulations with telehealth regulations, they aren’t permanent. Including a telehealth option that is secure and integrates into your EHR will benefit your practice in the long-term. Why is eMDs Patient Connect a benefit for your practice?
Direct Telemedicine Integration with the Aprima EHR
eMDs Patient Connect integrates directly into your Aprima EHR, giving you screen-in-screen capabilities. One downside of telehealth visits is the need for multiple screens, taking away from direct interaction with your patients. However, with eMDs Patient Connect, providers can access their clinical notes in the same screen as the video call. You can keep your attention where it needs to be – on your patients. After the call is completed, the notes you’ve taken are automatically saved.
Simple and Flexible Telehealth Solution for Practices AND Patients
Telehealth is meant to be a convenient option for patients. In a world where patients can order groceries and more from their phone, making their care accessible to them in the same way can make all the difference in their care.
eMDs Patient Connect is available for any device your patients use, no application needed. It’s simple enough for even the least tech-savy patient to use. Patients are emailed or texted the link to the virtual room when their appointment is upcoming. They will be asked security questions, and taken through testing for their camera and microphone before entering the waiting room.
The solution is also flexible for your practice. eMDs Patient Connect allows multiple members of your team to access the telehealth session with your patient. A nurse collecting vitals, demographics and chief complaints can join and leave the call without ending the session. When the provider is ready to meet with the patient, they can join the same call.
HIPPA Compliance – A Key to Telehealth
Keeping your patent’s data safe and secure is one of the most important things for any practice. Pandemic rulings have relaxed regulations, allowing practices to use less secure solutions. However, these will not be in place forever and for practices implementing telehealth solutions, it makes more sense to pick a solution that can be used long-term. It’s easier to get it right the first time than to have to change course when the rules change down the road.
eMDs Patient Connect is a secure, HIPPA compliant solution. All connections include end-to-end encryption, keeping patient interactions confidential. eMDs has a team specializing in security and compliance working to keep the solution protected. Your practice and patients can feel safe in the knowledge that no data will be put at risk.
