The Happy Marriage of Telemedicine and EHR Technology

telemedicine platformI don’t know how many of you are old enough to remember the old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups commercials from the 80’s, but they are classics. In the most famous, two young men are walking down the street in opposite directions, one is enjoying a chocolate bar, the other eating peanut butter out of a jar. They bump into each other and one says, “Hey, you got peanut butter on my chocolate!” The other says, “No, you got chocolate in my peanut butter.” They both shrug, have a bite, and are delighted with the results. The narrator helpfully adds, “Chocolate and peanut butter, two great tastes that go great together.”

We’d like to introduce the chocolate and peanut butter of healthcare technology – the EHR and telemedicine platform. Each is important and useful on its own, but together they produce a powerhouse of scheduling and clinical efficiency. Unlike the story played out in the Reese’s commercial, bringing them together was no accident. Chiron health has worked closely with our partners, CareCloud, athenahealth®, and others to produce a seamless, easy experience for your scheduling and clinical staff.

Say, “I Don’t,”  to Duplicate Data Entry

No one likes doing the same task twice, especially tedious data entry. That’s why Chiron Health integrates with our EHR/PM partners to seamlessly synchronize all of the relevant data. Your staff simply schedules the visit in the practice management system, just like they do today for in-person visits. They select the visit type of ‘Chiron Health Telemedicine.’ All of the patient, visit, and insurance information is immediately and automatically passed to the Chiron telehealth application.

Say, “I Do,” to Reimbursement

What do people hate as much as duplicate data entry? Doing work they don’t get paid for at all. We hate that too, so we’ve developed the industry’s most powerful insurance rules database. We take the insurance information passed over from your practice management system and verify that the patient is eligible for telehealth visits. This technology is supplemented by Chiron’s team of telemedicine reimbursement experts, working on your clients’ behalf to resolve any billing issues. We’re so sure that you’ll get reimbursed for the visits we verify, we guarantee it.

The strongest marriages (and candy confections) rely on each partner to do what they do best while supporting the other. That’s exactly what the integration of your EHR and telemedicine platform achieves. To see it in action, have a look at this quick demo of our integration with CareCloud.
