MediSprout – TELEMENTAL HEALTH COMPARISONS

MediSprout

How MediSprout can work for you?

PHYSICIANS

Why do I need it?
Because medical care delivery has not changed in decades while the world around us has.  It’s time to catch up.  We can still care for our patients and give them the attention they need, just much more efficiently and effectively.  Utilizing adjunct technologies, we can enhance the video interaction to give even greater utility.

Online administration of health related services is growing exponentially and projected to boom in the coming decade – taking business and revenue away from  established medical organizations.  MediSprout believes that health care must still retain a local component while offering the option for remote care with ones existing provider.  This accomplishes the best of both worlds – melding the traditional, medical approach with new technologies resulting in better, more efficient care.

When can I use it?

  • Follow up visits (medication follow up, imaging follow up…)
  • Chronic conditions,
  • New complaint that may be addressed without patient coming to the office (beauty is – you can always have them come in if you want!),
  • ED evaluations,
  • Hospital follow up,
  • Urgent Care – address the problem before patient comes in (if not able to, they can still come in!)
  • Conferencing family members/other Providers into a visit

Medically Specific?

  • HIPAA compliant
  • Use side-by-side with existing EMR
  • Self Service Scheduling function
  • File sharing and Screen Sharing
  • Messaging

How does it generate revenue?

  • Reimbursement through insurance (depending on state and insurance company) – more prevalent every year
  • Self pay models
  • Health Care Spending Accounts

Will patients like it?

  • Patients love it (success of remote care companies like American Well, Teladoc)
  • Eliminates taking time off from work, going to office, waiting, seeing doctor…

HOSPITAL

  • Compete with proliferation of online care providers
