Patients prefer convenient and more cost-effective access methods to healthcare services than direct in-person visits, and in some instances, it is preferable for clinicians as well. EHRs offer a platform for clinicians to integrate telemedicine solutions into existing workflows to recreate the in-office visit experience.
Goals and Objectives
Responds to the increasing needs and preferences of patients and providers. Reduces time, effort, financial, and physical burdens for both patients and providers. Introduces added workflow and practice efficiencies as a result of direct integration with patient records and maximizing patient visits.
Patient-facing portals, messaging, scheduling, and payment tools
Use Case Summary
The ability for providers to virtually recreate the in-office visit through EHR-based telemedicine will improve access to care, patient experience, and deliver on value for both providers and patients through a range of applications, such as management of medications, chronic care conditions, counseling and behavioral conditions, post-discharge monitoring, patient outreach, and communication.
