COVID-19 has forever changed how care is provided remotely to patients. Telehealth has become the go-to medium for clinicians to connect with their patients as a way of diagnosing and monitoring health conditions.
Qsource has a long history of working with healthcare providers when it comes to Telehealth services. We’ve done this through our assistance with electronic health records to connect patients’ data with their multiple providers creating better health outcomes. We’ve worked with providers to educate staff and patients on the benefits of telehealth, bringing everyone on the same page in the care provided and technology used.
To further assist, we’ve collected telehealth resource that have proven useful when providing care. If we can be of any assistance to you, please contact us.
Each toolkit contains electronic links to reliable sources of information on telehealth and telemedicine, which will reduce the time providers spend searching for answers and increase their time with patients. Many of these links will help providers learn about the general concept of telehealth, choose telemedicine vendors, initiate a telemedicine program, monitor patients remotely, and develop documentation tools. Additionally, the information contained within each toolkit will also outline temporary virtual services that can be used to treat patients.
