Electronic health record (EHR) companies are partnering with DrFirst to make telehealth available to healthcare providers throughout the US, the company said.
Within the past 30 days, 38 EHRs, representing over 100,000 providers, have partnered with DrFirst to provide its award-winning Backline for telehealth services to clients of their electronic medical record (EMR) systems in physician practices, dental offices, emergency departments, urgent care, behavioral health, and long-term care facilities.
Backline for telehealth is used by more than 1,300 organizations and growing, with an exponential increase in usage, including well over two million minutes of telehealth visits in the past month.
Backline allows clinicians to quickly extend patient care beyond the traditional doctor´s office, clinic, or hospital. Patients click a link sent to their mobile phone, tablet, or computer; they do not need to download an app, access a patient portal, or undergo a cumbersome registration process. With Backline´s numerous and adaptable features, including secure chat and telehealth, e-signatures, document sharing, and more, providers can connect with each other and with patients from any location at any time to improve care coordination and outcomes.
Since 2000, DrFirst has pioneered healthcare technology solutions and consulting services that securely connect people at touchpoints of care to improve patient outcomes. To learn more, visit DrFirst.com.
