The CareClix telemedicine platform now enables high-level video consultations between patients and their providers for routine health care over their enabled hand-held device in addition to its current web-based access. Additionally, patients will be able to schedule appointments and access their personal health records (PHR) via these mobile applications. CareClix video consultations may be conducted not only via wi-fi connections but through standard cellular networks as well, making the platform the first of its kind.
“With the recent US Supreme Court ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), telemedicine is positioned to allow patients, insurers, employers, and providers a means to provide cost-effective, high quality healthcare. As a leading telehealth organization, CareClix will continue to bring innovations like this to telemedicine in order to enhance patient convenience and transform the way patients interact with their physicians and providers.” said Dr. Sunil Budhrani, the medical director of CareClix.
