Simple Patient Connection
Benefits of Telehealth in Hospitals
In a value-based care system hospitals are being penalized for readmission. It’s time to extend proactive patient care beyond the hospital’s four-walls with telehealth visits. Consumers’ demands for convenience and instant gratification determine how they select their healthcare providers. So how can you engage your patients starting today? Hospitals have ample opportunity to incorporate telehealth into their daily processes both for increased revenue and operational efficiencies. To stay relevant in competing with non-traditional healthcare like retail clinics, urgent care, consumer-facing telehealth, and virtual care, administrators need to look beyond the traditional hospital walls. They need to look for areas to expand access to care without expensive capital expenditures.

How is Telehealth Used in Healthcare?
How can you make telehealth simple and scaleable while providing a top patient experience? Patient user experience has to be simple and has to be simple for all demographics. It needs to be simple enough that a grandma at 75 can connect and youth at 12 can connect and everybody in between. It needs to be so simple that you don’t have to give very detailed instructions. It needs to be one, two, three clicks to connect.

Understanding the Benefits of Telehealth in Hospitals
One of the most important aspects of implementing telehealth is its ability to provide proactive and convenient care. By using a true video telehealth platform, you can increase physician and patient experience.
Telehealth is NOT Video Conferencing
Selecting the proper telehealth platform for your hospital is most important for scaling and strategically thinking about the long-term increase in senior care at home. As the demand for telehealth continues at hockey stick growth and with private payer and reimbursement aligning, you must ask yourself, why is my hospital not using telehealth right way?
Hospitals have found that by using video conferencing tools, you run into many issues. Using video conferencing for one-off encounters for a solo provider might work, but across a medical practice and/or hospital isn’t effective or scalable.
With today’s consumer, every second counts so you need to make the most of it. If your patient is videoing in for a specialty care appointment, they shouldn’t have to download third-party apps or desktop plugins. Don’t put your clinicians in a situation where they spend more time helping a patient connect than practicing medicine. Baby Boomers are more tech-savvy than you give them credit for and want telehealth. Our telehealth platform for hospitals was built for population health and seniors to be able to connect with 2-click simplicity, in less than 10 seconds. This allows for minimal to no patient and/or provider training.
For specialty medicine and even virtual ER, your hospital may need more than just one to one scheduled appointment. Telehealth in hospitals gives you the ability to go beyond simple connections and create queues to skill your mid-levels and providers. One Touch Telehealth’s skilled-based routing is ideal for hospitals to implement “one to many” routing, for virtual ER, supporting self-insured employers, SNF’s and home health.
