Improved Patient Outcomes
All providers want their patients to get better, and stay healthy. And now with the shift to value-based pay models, improving patient care outcomes will also be a key indicator involved in reimbursement. How does Telemedicine improve patient outcomes? Well, just imagine if you started offering quick telemedicine follow-up visits to patients who were discharged from the hospital. Or to chronic care patients who struggle to manage all their medications or get to all their appointments. The more convenient the follow-up process is for patients, the less likely they are to miss an important appointment or have an early warning sign turn into an urgent, avoidable hospital visit.
