Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 17, 2018
Vein911® Vein Treatment Centers announced today that they have launched Telemedicine Services for Vein and Lymphatic Consults. The telemedicine services will allow current and prospective patients of Vein911® Vein Treatment Centers to communicate with their physicians via a completely secure, HIPAA compliant, and fully encrypted connection. Patients will have the option to use their smart phone, tablet, or personal computer to have an initial consultation or follow up appointment for the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, leg swelling, and lymphedema. Vein911® Vein Treatment Centers implemented the telemedicine technology platform developed by Chiron Health.
The telemedicine service offering is a strategic component of Vein911® Vein Treatment Center’s growth strategy. Vein911® currently has clinics in Tampa and St. Petersburg and are actively opening locations in Largo and Palm Harbor. The company is exploring further expansion opportunities in Orlando, Jacksonville, Sarasota, Naples, and Miami. Telemedicine services will allow Vein911® to provide care to patients that might traditionally do without care due to their location or lifestyle.
Telemedicine is quickly becoming a standard delivery method for health care providers including family practitioners, cardiac specialists, and pediatric care. The Florida Legislature recently created a 13-member advisory council to study the issue and deliver a report to state political leaders on how to expand telehealth services. Currently, most of the health insurance providers in the state of Florida do not reimburse for telemedicine visits. The insurance companies are expected to rapidly adopt telemedicine over the next few years as a strategy to provide more efficient care at lower costs.
“We are very excited to be one of the few vein treatment centers in the country using telemedicine,” said Chris Pittman, M.D., Medical Director and CEO of Vein911® Vein Treatment Centers. “The service will provide a convenient option of care and a unique experience for our patients.”
