Top US Healthcare Organizations Now Offering Virtual Visits through iPhones and iPads
Now many of the nation’s top healthcare networks including Massachusetts General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Joslin Diabetes Center and Boston Children's Hospital are providing their doctors and patients with an alternative to the phone consult with virtual doctor visits using video on demand from their personal PCs, laptops, tablets and or smartphones. Video doctor visits are not new, they have existed in one form or another for the past 20 years, but these have typically been prescheduled, clinic to clinic and required expensive, dedicated hardware to use. Today, patients can now access their own provider on-demand at any time, anywhere and using any device.
SBR Health is making virtual visits a reality by enabling the large-scale deployment of virtual visit programs through sophisticated software that enables health providers to handle the call flow and management of patients virtually. Patients at participating healthcare delivery organizations can now access the SBR iOS application, VirtualVisit, to connect with their doctor. Providers also benefit with the ability to be anywhere for the consult, which is important as often physicians’ schedules are invariable and often patient visits may need to be delayed. More importantly, the iOS app allows the patient and provider to connect for scheduled appointments as well as ad hoc care needs, such as urgent consults outside normal clinic hours.
Today, SBR Health’s virtual visit product, ResourceManager, is used by today’s leading hospitals and healthcare delivery organizations to increase patient access for better outcomes, extend service reach and maximize clinical efficiency. "Our mission is to improve people’s health through better communication,”
