FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Sept. 10, 2019 - PRLog -- Symplast, the #1 mobile EHR/PM for plastic surgery and med spas, announced today the release of a new live-video telemedicine feature: Video Visit. Symplast's 3,500+ clinical users across the country can now conduct virtual consultations and other types of virtual appointments in a HIPAA secure, encrypted manner with their patients. This latest enhancement to the Symplast mobile ecosystem is included at no additional cost to every Symplast customer, delivering the convenience of virtual care to a patient's iOS or Android mobile device.

  • Ability to conduct live, HIPAA secure video appointments between the Symplast Practice App and the Symplast Patient App.
  • Fully integrated and ready to use for all Symplast users - no additional fees or charges.
  • Capture screenshots during the consultation that are automatically added into the patient's file.
  • Automated appointment reminder SMS text prompts patient to download Patient App for a Video Visit.
  • Updated artificially intelligent Practice Flow room manager that includes Video Visit waiting area and room.

Symplast Founder Dr. Shashi Kusuma spoke to the importance telehealth has played since Symplast's origins: "Symplast was founded on the principles of patient engagement, mobility and cutting-edge multimedia. Telemedicine and telehealth have been at the core of Symplast's mission and vision from day one.

We're very excited to introduce such a powerful feature into the plastic surgery workflow. There is a definite need for live video conferencing. Unfortunately, most practices are forced to resort to using Skype or Facetime to offer virtual care. This, obviously, is far from ideal due to HIPAA violations. By having a seamless, integrated telehealth offering interwoven into the clinical workflows throughout our Symplast platform, our users can more easily incorporate this advantageous offering into their business model right away."

Symplast CEO/CTO Facundo Formica: "From a product development standpoint, our team understood that there were two critical capabilities our telehealth offering must include:
  • Actual streaming of live video, in order to replace the non-HIPAA secure alternatives of Facetime and Skype that so many practices resort to.
  • End-to-end integration of the Video Visit within the overall Symplast workflows.
From a user experience standpoint, we worked diligently to ensure that our Video Visit would blend in seamlessly to the workflows of every user in the practice, not just the doctor. From the front desk scheduling the appointment, to the coordinator or staff member updating the virtual appointment's status, to the ability for the doctor to capture screenshots during the Video Visit that are stored directly into the patient's Multimedia Manager. I'm proud to say that our new Video Visit has exceeded all of our expectations."
