"We believe the VirtualHealthCheck.com, SaaS platform will provide physicians with an opportunity to provide true integrated and accoutable care."
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) March 2, 2011
The launch of the VirtualHealthCheck.com fully integrated telehealth solution gives health care providers the power to communicate with patients and monitor their vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, glucose and weight) using the VirtualHealthCheck telehealth center in San Antonio, Texas.
We offer patients three ways to store and share their vital sign information. They can enter their data into our mobile apps or MyVirtualHealthcheck.com, or use our in-home, wireless monitoring systems. Our system even alerts health care providers when vital signs go out of range. Alerts can trigger a multi-channel telehealth response to communicate with patients via inbound/outbound phone, e-mail and/or live chat.
Providers can also manage communication between our telehealth agents and patients, create surveys and establish call rules for specific patients or groups of patients based on care plan needs.
"Our SaaS telehealth approach allows health care providers to control agent scripting, survey content and contact rules, giving them both control and accountability into each patient interaction," said Michael Seringer, Vice President of Chronic Care Management, Inc. "We have designed a flexible, SaaS telehealth solution to free providers from managing hardware and software so they can focus on patient care."
Health care providers can also easily access web-based, real-time reporting to monitor their telehealth effort. The VirtualHealthCheck telehealth solution also provides chain of custody reporting to assure telehealth program rules are being followed and quality patient interactions, every time.
Today the healthcare system is plagued by poor communication between medical providers and patients between visits. Attempting to treat chronic conditions without an accurate, rich history of vital sign data prevents healthcare providers from responding with prompt and appropriate care, which leads to worse patient outcomes and higher medical costs.
"We have conducted many interviews with physisicans and most have expressed their inability to provide between-visit care and communication to patients," said Seringer. "We believe the VirtualHealthCheck.com, SaaS platform will provide physicians with an opportunity to provide true integrated and accoutable care."
