Frontline Doctor℠ is a HIPAA compliant telemedicine portal that facilitates flexible patient engagement with a seamless video experience. The need to expand patient care using telehealth virtual visits has never been greater. Providers can now conduct appointments from their office or home and ensure accesibility to the needs of patients who need it the most. Virtual visits provide a ‘contactless’ secure environment reducing risk of corss-infections to ‘service providers’ – a need especially with the risks that Covid-19 poses.
Telemedicine (also referred to as “telehealth” or “e-health”) allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in remote locations using telecommunications technology. Telemedicine allows patients in remote locations to access medical expertise quickly, efficiently and without travel. Telemedicine provides more efficient use of limited expert resources who can “see” patients in multiple locations wherever they are needed without leaving their facility. In developed and developing countries telemedicine offers a reduced cost solution to delivering remote care when and where it is needed without the building and staffing added facilities. Telemedicine also reduces isolation that clinicians can experience in small medical facilities in distant locations. Telemedicine allows local practitioners to consult with their peers and with clinical experts when needed. Telemedicine further allows them to participate in grand rounds and education opportunities they would not normally have access to without travel and time away from their patients.
Frontline Doctor offers you a fluid consistent experience whether you are accesing the platform through your desktop or your handheld device. We understand that telemedicine is here to stay as a standard medical practice and is in daily use across dozens of countries. Accesibility, ease of functional use, a protected environment for personal data and a closed-loop connectivity option with the medical practitioner have been teh primary asks of the ‘telemedicine ecosystem’.
High-end security protocols that are built-in, ever evolving regulatory guidelines as well as the deep-dive of AI, IOT and furtherance of med-tech, future tech in healthcare will collectively ensure a quicker integration of telemedicine as a parallel practice regimen.
The recent developments in the rules and regulations governing telemedicine, have greatly helped in accelerating its acceptance in regular practice. Accesibility to insurance data, seamless copay options, digital EMR access and advancements in diagnostics will all be further enablers.
The impact telemedicine has made on applications worldwide is astounding! There are hundreds of “use” cases showing how telemedicine technology is being used to improve the quality of healthcare and to deliver medical care in rural and remote locations.
