The Verishow Telehealth solution is the ideal solution for health care providers as well as pharmaceutical companies that wish to interact in person with patients.
Telemedicine, according to American Telemedicine Association, is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, content sharing, co-browsing functionalities on desktops and wireless devices and other forms of telecommunications technology.
Remote medical technology is an increasingly popular way to administer preventive medicine and manage chronic conditions. Research shows that using telehealth technologies results in many positive outcomes including fewer hospital re-admissions, more faithful following of prescribed courses of treatment, and better recovery than that of patients not receiving remote intervention.
Consequently, telemedicine is starting to emerge as a significant method of healthcare delivery. Providers say their biggest telemedicine hurdle is figuring out how to cover the cost. But because they are increasingly being paid for outcomes rather than procedures, they are incentivized to provide care in the most efficient way possible and telemedicine is cheaper than in-person care.
As Medicare and Medicaid beginning to cover not-in-person consultations, reimbursement for telemedicine is also becoming more mainstream. Hence, billing codes have been established in many states and some health care providers themselves are willing to pay for the ability to deliver some services remotely.
