New technology removes physician practice barriers to conducting video visits

CareCloud’s research finds that, while patients and doctors largely support telemedicine, there are major hurdles to ambulatory telemedicine in the practice back office — where the technology poses more process change headaches than revenue cycle management (RCM) opportunities. Of the 922.6 million total U.S. physician office visits in 2016, only 1.2 million were telemedicine visits. With a back-office-first focus, CareCloud is on a mission to make telemedicine mainstream by making it more accessible to medical practices.
“Medical practices across the country have been telling us that they want telemedicine but were uncertain about the ROI and how to overcome the complexities of easily integrating video technology into their current workflows,” said Ken Comée, CEO of CareCloud. “Our approach reduces friction and lowers the barrier to entry for physician practices across the country by helping to schedule telemedicine visits directly in our CareCloud Central practice management solution. The real growth for telemedicine is going to come from high-performing medical practices serving their existing patients using the technology — developing a better patient experience in an iterative way.”
CareCloud Telemedicine is deployed on the company’s cloud technology platform expressly for the needs of high-performing medical groups, including features such as:
Among the benefits to practices using telemedicine are:
CareCloud Telemedicine enters a market poised for growth. A Cisco consumer survey found that 7 out of 10 patients are comfortable with seeing their doctor virtually instead of in person. More than half of states have passed bills requiring insurance companies to cover telehealth patient visits. According to CareCloud’s 2017 Practice Performance Index, high-performing practices are more than twice as likely to be using telemedicine compared to practices falling behind. Moreover, nearly 1 in 4 successful practices reports investing in telemedicine to improve patient experience.
“I’m sometimes all over the place and not always accessible in the clinic,” said Dr. Jelunder Clark with Wellness Medicine of Hampton, Georgia. “I wanted a way for my patients to have more access to me, and telemedicine has been a great tool to bring that personal extra touch.”
CareCloud is one of the first companies to offer an RCM-integrated telemedicine solution in the health technology market. The company is hosting a webinar on July 12 at 12:30 p.m. ET for medical groups interested in learning more about this unique approach to telemedicine.
