New Telemedicine App Lets Patients Connect with Their Doctor Via Secure Video Chat
eVisit, a telehealth company building physician-first solutions, announced today the launch of their mobile app, available for iOS and Android. In addition to the eVisit web app, eVisit’s new mobile app will now let physicians provide remote video visits to their patients via mobile device. Participating physicians and their patients can download the app to their Apple and Android mobile devices to connect in real-time for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of medical issues.
An easy-to-use, telemedicine app designed by physicians, for physicians, the eVisit solution helps healthcare providers raise patient satisfaction and boost practice revenue. Patients get convenient, accessible care for minor injuries, illnesses, or follow-ups from the comfort of their homes. And healthcare providers improve their own experience: by supplementing in-office patient visits with remote video visits, physicians can reduce no-shows, optimize their appointment calendars, and get reimbursed for after-hours consults.
“The release of our mobile app makes eVisit’s telemedicine platform even more accessible and intuitive for patients and their healthcare providers,” says Bret Larsen, eVisit CEO. “More than ever we rely on our smartphones for everyday tasks—including getting access to healthcare. The power of telemedicine is all about getting high-quality care no matter where you are. We’re harnessing that power by connecting doctors and their patients in a safe, secure way via mobile device.”
The eVisit telemedicine app features:
- Virtual treatment — Crystal-clear video and the image upload feature allows physicians to diagnosis and treat their patients remotely.
- ePrescribe — Send prescriptions electronically without a phone call. Providers can send any needed prescription electronically to over 66,000 pharmacies nationwide in the eVisit database.
- Stay-in-touch — providers and patients get updates on the status of remote visit requests via text, call or email.
- Collect Co-pay and Bill — providers can charge patients for the visit within the app.
- Patient Records — a complete, exportable record of the visit that can be submitted for reimbursement, and easily added to a practice’s EMR.
In order to use the eVisit mobile app, physicians need to first sign up with eVisit. Only the patients of participating physicians can use the app.
“From the physician perspective, engaging patients is key, and this app allows a very personal interaction with patients that can be very satisfying to both participants,” says Dr. Glen McCracken, President at eVisit. “We’re entering a new paradigm in how healthcare is delivered and we at eVisit are excited to be on that edge of innovation."
