Telehealth software allows you to care for your patients through live video conferencing consultations. Like in your hospitals, medical care facilities, online portals, clinics, behavioral care facilities, and more, you can arrange appointments with individuals or groups, perform examinations, recommend treatments, and offer follow-up care through a secure, HIPPA compliant, high-quality video and audio connection.

With Telehealth software, consult and treat anyone from anywhere—you’re no longer limited by location, time zones, or travel restrictions. Got a high-risk patient who needs to stay home? An elderly client with mobility challenges? Or someone who lives far away in a rural area? You can help all of them through Telehealth software via computers, tablets, or mobile devices.

Patients can book an appointment and they will receive a confirmation email with a link that lets them access the call. That way, when their appointment time arrives, your patient simply needs to follow the link, and they’ll be whisked away to the virtual treatment room where you’ll join them. No login or password is required—just one click and they’re in! Once your client enters the call, you’ll receive a notification that they’ve arrived.

What prompts a Healthcare facility to Evaluate Telehealth Software?

Business challenges that lead Healthcare Facilities like hospitals to evaluate telehealth software and video conferencing solutions. The challenges that they experience are low video quality, lack of integration into existing technologies, high price points, waiting room experiences, complicated deployment, and lack of data security.

There is no doubt that telehealth technology has had a positive impact on the healthcare industry. However, due to a rapid increase in demand, many telehealth software providers left key features less sophisticated than necessary to provide an optimal patient-provider experience. Also, due to the infancy of remote observation, there is still a large number of providers that are skeptical to jump on board.

Virtual Observation Use Cases and Results

Telehealth software has multiple use cases in the healthcare industry and is known to make positive impacts on patient satisfaction, staff efficiency, revenue, and early intervention. One specific use case for remote observation is for patients with cardiovascular diseases. Cardiac patients, even if deemed minimal risk, can have sudden episodes with little to no symptoms beforehand. These episodes are serious and require immediate attention. In such cases, patients need more than regular vital assessments. 1

With manual patient monitoring, clinicians are likely to miss significant changes2 in the patient’s condition, including oxygen saturation, pulse rate, respiration rate, total hemoglobin, and other clinical measurements. Over a ten-year case study (Susan McGrath et al)3, out of 111,488 patients receiving remote observation, there were zero deaths or psychological side effects from prescribed opioids.
