Telehealth Infrastructure

Hospitals & Medical Practices
Telehealth is quickly becoming one of the key elements of any physician’s practice. Adequate telehealth infrastructure with online patient registration, insurance, and benefits verification, charge capture, and claims processing is essential.

With social distancing rules in place, many Americans are seeking care by connecting with a doctor electronically, many for the first time.

For some of the physicians’ practices, the transition to telehealth has been easier than for others. Several healthcare providers have been required to implements telehealth infrastructure overnight and become familiar with new technologies.

Driven by the goal to keep patients away from packed medical buildings, government and private insurers have approved payment for telehealth appointments, so they are the same as in-person visits. Before the Covid-19 outbreak, insurers paid less than half that amount.

Telehealth is one of the most practical solutions;  it allows diagnosing and treating patients remotely via phone, chat, and/or video call. But it requires specific technological and administrative infrastructure. With a dependable telehealth system, patients can continue getting the necessary care and physician’s practices can partially protect their revenues.

Before you can start or improve your telehealth infrastructure, you need to assess where you are now. Here are some questions you should think about:

What is the best telehealth platform that fits your needs?
Is your platform HIPPA compliant?
What medical services can fit into telehealth?
Do your physicians need to join a telehealth platform with the insurance company?
Does your staff know the new policies and procedures?

Navigating the dynamic and complex revenue cycle change management arena is a challenge for many health plans, health care vendors, and providers.
