Could you treat your patients virtually? From large hospital systems to small primary care practices, telehealth is rapidly evolving, becoming more widely available and easily accessible for both patients and providers. In primary care, it’s a great option for providers to turn to when a patient needs a basic consultation or follow up appointment but doesn’t necessarily need to be seen right away.
Because it has grown quite quickly, some practice owners may find themselves fearful of how time-consuming and complicated integrating telehealth into their already busy practice may be. Fortunately, there is no shortage of telemedicine software companies on the market. Whether you want to take your practice completely virtual or just be up to par with the latest EHR system, here are six companies that will make integrating the latest telehealth technologies into your practice a cinch.
