What are telehealth services?
Telemedicine, or telehealth, is a term coined to describe remote health monitoring, and more pertinently, the technological integration that enables this monitoring. But to Henry Schein, it means so much more. It means empowerment, equality, and delivering outcomes that benefit the health economies and individual patients who need it most.
To make quality telehealth available for more medical practices, we carefully searched for and vetted telehealth solutions providers that exceed patient expectations and adapt seamlessly with your current office technology.
Why is telehealth important?
Telehealth has officially moved from the fringes of healthcare to the forefront, and it’s here to stay. Don’t allow your medical practice to get left behind. With the help of Henry Schein SolutionsHub, you can now increase healthcare access and grow your practice remotely.
Telehealth services have several benefits for both your patients and your practice, many of which center around added convenience for both parties. Telehealth allows patients to have greater opportunities to schedule appointments with the specialty providers they need to see while also allowing your medical practice to work at peak efficiency and earn increased reimbursement.
More benefits include:
- Improves patient engagement
- Improves clinical workflow
- Reduces practice overhead
- Reduces patient no-show rate
- Cuts patient costs
- Improves patient satisfaction
What is included in telehealth?
There are several telehealth solutions, the most common being virtual home healthcare. In virtual home health care, patients who are elderly or chronically ill are able to receive your healthcare guidance without having to leave the comfort of their home.
As an umbrella term, telehealth can also include monitoring a patient’s vital signs, ECG, or blood pressure. Remote doctor-patient consultations regarding both medical and physical health are known as telemedicine.
Working with a telehealth technology provider enables you to evaluate and diagnose your patients remotely. Healthcare professionals who offer telehealth solutions can also detect fluctuations in a patient’s medical condition at home so that they can address the treatment plan with immediacy. Telehealth solutions also allow you to e-prescribe medications to patients.
