The pandemic has resulted in an unexpected need for telehealth technology. New guidelines outlined by CMS allows health plans to use telehealth technology to submit diagnosis for risk adjustment. Health plans are readily adopting these solutions and expanding services such as in-home assessments to better understand their member’s needs.
In partnering with MediVisum, Virtix has secured a telehealth solution that is easily accessible to nursing staff and providers and that requires no app download or login from patients, removing some of the fundamental impediments to member engagement with telehealth technology. Additionally, the MediVisum solution provides the security, patient privacy, and documentation needed to effectively operationalize the virtual Annual Wellness Visit and interfaces with Virtix Health’s member engagement platform Linx.
Built from the ground up by healthcare professionals for healthcare providers, MediVisum offers a HIPAA compliant solution with robust and customizable clinical features like patient risk scoring, screen image capture, report generation, session tracking and audit logging to ensure comprehensive documentation. The solution is flexible by design so it can be implemented into a myriad of workflows to better support healthcare providers and institutions still navigating telehealth adoption in the pandemic era. “The pandemic has only exacerbated the need to provide quality care to patients” says Natalee Scott, MediVisum COO. Ms. Scott further elaborates that “patient adherence and provider follow up will certainly mitigate the need for ER visits and hospitalizations during this period when any avoidable occurrences will add undue stress to hospital systems already taxed by Covid-related cases. Companies like Virtix demonstrate in very practical terms, the ability of telehealth and virtual visits to expand patient care, ensure better patient outcomes, and during a pandemic, protect both patients and providers, by simply removing, where possible, the physical barriers to healthcare delivery.”
In addition to providing specialized tools for such needs as virtual Annual Wellness Visits, MediVisum provides modules for COVID-19 screening, Behavioral Health, and other applications which can be configured or customized to address the needs of clients in diverse clinical settings.
According to Craig Mercure, Virtix CEO, “The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us that we need to implement meaningful healthcare delivery alternatives and establish them as a part of the new standard of care delivery. The reach and efficiency, as well as the time and money that will be saved by enabling virtual annual wellness visits will be a win for everyone – patients, providers and health plans alike. We are excited to partner with MediVisum for this undertaking. Their secure solution and their approach to healthcare technology and delivery is about the win for everyone involved. From the intuitiveness of their application to the ease of customization, we were able to seamlessly incorporate MediVisum into our specific program workflow.”
