InDoc, a clinical telehealth ED staffing company created to improve the emergency department (ED) experience, has announced it is partnering with EmOpti, a pioneer in TeleTriage technology, the company said.
This partnership provides emergency departments with an affordable, turnkey solution to combat the continued surge of COVID-19 and the impending seasonal flu. Combining award-winning telehealth technology with Emergency Medicine trained physicians relieves the operational burden that hospital administrators encounter when implementing an emergency department telehealth program. Unlike the few alternative options, InDoc and EmOpti can be set up and ready to go with only minimal upfront costs. Additional costs are incurred only when utilized, as the need arises.
Since the pandemic began in the United States, hospitals and EDs have been forced to navigate through unpredictable volumes and financial uncertainty while also ensuring the safety of both patients and frontline staff. The combination of InDoc´s US-based Emergency Physicians and EmOpti´s superior technology can be procured at a fraction of the time and cost that would normally be required to hire and train additional physicians to implement an emergency department telehealth program.
Since hospitals pay only if and when services are needed, they are better prepared for unpredictable surges but obviated from incurring unnecessary costs during a time when they must carefully budget expenses with patients´ needs.
Leveraging the InDoc and EmOpti partnership, hospitals increase revenue by reducing the number of patients who leave without being seen. Additionally, ED efficiency is improved, resulting in marked improvements in key metrics such as door-to-doctor times, patient satisfaction scores, and length of stay. Several Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) measures are positively impacted. This technology results in fewer in-person encounters, decreasing the need for PPE while increasing staff safety.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, InDoc provides scalable healthcare solutions for decreasing inefficiencies and augmenting ED staff.
