As an internal medicine practitioner, you are always looking for ways to improve patient health and streamline the efforts of your staff. With telemedicine for internal medicine, you can expand your patient offerings to include videoconferencing that lets you augment the relationship you have with your patients. While telemedicine is not meant to replace face-to-face medical care, it is a great solution for those times when a patient needs to see you for a non-urgent problem, such as treatment for a chronic condition, requesting a refill, following up on lab work, or checking in to monitor ongoing treatment. With telemedicine, you can drive up your practice’s revenue while keeping your patients happy and your scheduling on point.
How Internal Medicine Works with Video
Telemedicine allows you to consult with your patients in real time via video chat and videoconferencing. Your patient logs on to your Vsee Cloud Clinic and schedules an appointment. When the appointment time arrives, the patient meets with you via video in a HIPAA-compliant session that goes much like a traditional office visit. You can share screens with your patient, check his vitals, and examine him virtually. The process is easy and simple for both you and the patient, usually lasting only as long as a traditional office visit.
See Patients Remotely
Treating your patients anytime, from anywhere, is the biggest advantage of telemedicine for internal medicine, and it benefits both you and your patient. You can deliver high-quality healthcare to your patient, putting accessibility to you at his fingertips, so simple appointments are even simpler. Your patient avoids the commute to your office, the conventional waiting room wait, and the drive back home – opting instead to meet with you on his own terms. With Vsee’s web and mobile apps, you can make it simple for patients to get the care they need while also increasing your practice’s productivity.
Get Paid for After-Hours Calls
For the internal medicine practitioner, the work day seldom ends when the office closes. Patients often contact their doctors after hours with questions, and many times patient emergencies keep you on the phone, unpaid. When you integrate telemedicine into your practice, these diversions from your private time can finally be converted to quick consultations with you, so you get paid for all the hours you work, not just the hours you see patients directly. This enhances your bottom line and ensures you get the most out of the time you spend caring for your patients.
Enhance the Flow of Patients in Your Practice
Scheduling is oftentimes a nightmare, especially when you have patients who miss their appointments, call to reschedule, or just avoid showing up altogether. No-shows eat into your bottom line, but patients who have the ability to see you remotely via telemedicine technology are less likely to cancel; they don’t have the commute and the hassle of an appointment when they see you from their own homes. When patients do cancel, your Vsee Cloud Clinic makes it possible for you to offer those empty time slots to other patients, so you don’t miss out on revenue for your growing business. The system also makes scheduling in-person patients easier, since you have fewer cancellations to deal with – which results in decreased wait times and happier traditional patients.
