Why EHR Systems Need an Integrated Telehealth Partner

Initially designed to replace paper records, EHR systems now serve as comprehensive platforms that manage a wide array of patient information. However, integrating telehealth services with these systems is crucial for optimizing patient care and operational efficiency. Today, we’re exploring why EHR systems need an integrated telehealth partner and the numerous benefits this partnership can bring to healthcare professionals and hospital administrators.

Data Management Challenges Faced by Standalone EHRs

EHR systems have come a long way from merely storing health information to becoming highly functional platforms for healthcare management. Despite this progress, standalone EHR systems still face limitations when incorporating telehealth services. One significant challenge is the lack of systems interoperability, which hampers the seamless communication of data between telehealth platforms and EHR systems. This disconnect can lead to fragmented patient care and inefficiencies that stand in the way of optimal healthcare delivery. 

“Seamless data management is critical for providing high-quality telehealth services. Without integration, healthcare providers grapple with fragmented data, which can impair the quality of patient care.” VP of Operations at SecureVideo, Kate Brandis.

The Benefits of Integrating with a Telehealth Partner

  1. Focus on Patient Care

An integrated telehealth partner allows healthcare providers to prioritize patient care without worrying about data fragmentation. Simplified access to patient information ensures that healthcare professionals can focus on diagnosing and treating patients efficiently, thus resulting in improved patient health outcomes

  1. Improved Accuracy and Accessibility of PHI

Accurate and readily accessible Protected Health Information (PHI) is fundamental for effective patient care. Integration ensures that all patient interactions, regardless of their mode (in-person or virtual), are accurately recorded and easily accessible, lessening the risk of errors.

  1. Enhanced Communication & Coordination

An integrated telehealth solution fosters enhanced communication and coordination among healthcare teams. It provides a unified platform for all patient interactions, allowing for real-time collaboration and information sharing, thereby improving patient outcomes.

  1. Streamlined Workflows

Integrating telehealth with EHR systems streamlines administrative and clinical workflows. Automated data entry, scheduling, and billing processes reduce administrative burdens, allowing for more impactful care to be devoted to patients. 

SecureVideo Offers API Integration with EHRs

The SecureVideo platform may be integrated with EHR systems using APIs that allow for SSO (Single Sign-On), user management, scheduling integration, data management through our E-Documents feature, and more. This provides a streamlined telehealth experience for a broad spectrum of healthcare professionals. In doing so, we bridge the gap between telehealth and traditional in-person care, offering a seamless experience for both patients and healthcare providers. 

“SecureVideo’s integrated partnership opportunities seek to eliminate the barriers to effective telehealth services.
