There is a growing shortage of healthcare providers
and telemedicine seeks to solve that issue as a disruptive
innovation for the healthcare industry. We will begin to see
part-time and retired physicians engaged in telemedicine.
It has been stated that there are two types of physicians:
those that are doing telemedicine and those that will
be doing telemedicine. That being said, there are many
considerations physicians must consider before jumping
into telemedicine with both feet.

Providing You Peace of Mind...

While telemedicine is already available to patients
nationwide, programs vary significantly in their objectives,
scope, and complexity. Not all telemedicine programs
are designed the same or offer the same level of service.
Additionally, telemedicine needs are different for solo and
small group practices than for hospitals and healthcare
systems.
Assessing service needs and the organization of the
practice, defining a program model, and developing a
business case are some of the initial steps that a practice
must undergo. These are critically important detailed steps
to take prior to developing a plan and selecting technology.
There are diligent legal concerns that must be considered
throughout the process as well. Patient confidentiality
needs to be a paramount consideration. Deciding to
implement a telemedicine solution with ad hoc processes,
procedures, and technology is ill-advised indeed.

Indeed, there are a multitude of tasks to cover before
adding a telemedicine service to your practice. Some other
considerations include licensure, malpractice insurance,
patient consent forms, job duties, EMR integration,
charge capture, metrics capture, and marketing. You
may also be in need of financing for this new service
as a startup business. Furthermore, when working
on the technology phase, selection of cool toys and
software applications is not enough. Practices must
also deliberate over connectivity development and
contingency plans.
For all these reasons, it is highly advisable to
seek out a practice consultant with experience in
telemedicine solutions. An experienced consultant
can help you consider critical aspects
of development as well as support decision
making. A structured development process
allows you to consider decisions and impact
before making buying decisions and other
costly decisions.
