Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader Modernizing Medicine® has announced that current and future users of its electronic health records (EHR) system, EMA®, will have access to its real-time audio and video telemedicine platform, modmed® Telehealth, the company said.
The solution will help healthcare professionals treat existing patients when it´s needed most during the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The real-time audio and video capabilities being added to EMA will help enable providers to remotely evaluate patients to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and to help healthcare professionals reach vulnerable patient populations. Physicians will have the ability to see patients whether offices are open or closed, to renew prescriptions and to accommodate existing clinical workflows.
The solution will work with both WiFi and cellular connections and help physicians to provide personalized care from almost anywhere with high-resolution video chat functionality. Patients will be able to download the new version of the PocketPatient™ app with the audio and video chat capability added and use their iPhone (iOS12 and above) or Android device (v. 5.0 and above) to virtually attend their scheduled appointments.
