COLD SPRING, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2014) - Healthcare SaaS (software as a service) provider, CloudVisit Telemedicine, announces an easier way to connect online patient encounters with existing electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR). Through Continuity of Care Record (CCR), a standard in EMR/EHR data sharing, healthcare providers can now transfer all telemedicine and telepsychiatry information from CloudVisit to their existing patient record system.
Designed to foster provider collaboration and reduce medical errors, CCR is an information technology standard for securely sharing and storing patient healthcare data. As an enhancement to their HIPAA-compliant telemedicine and telepsychiatry platforms, CloudVisit now facilitates data export in CCR format.
"Patient data portability is a must for a successful telemedicine platform," said Daniel Gilbert, president and CEO of CloudVisit Telemedicine. "CloudVisit was created to enhance current healthcare procedures. CCR export takes that a step further by strengthening the way our telemedicine platforms complement existing systems."
CloudVisit and CCR: How it works
CloudVisit enables real-time video appointments between providers and patients. The patient encounter data surrounding those sessions -- date, time, provider, and treatment notes - are valuable components of a patient's health records. While that information can remain safely in HIPAA-compliant CloudVisit, CCR export allows providers to merge that data with a patient's complete EMR/EHR record.
"With CloudVisit, providers get all the benefits of an easy-to-use, EMR/EHR-friendly telemedicine platform, without cost-prohibitive programming and integration customizations," said Gilbert.
Telemedicine that's friends with your EMR/EHR
CloudVisit's new CCR export tool eliminates redundancies and streamlines the data sharing process for telemedicine and telepsychiatry encounters. Providers can take full advantage of the scheduling and tracking tools within CloudVisit, then easily transfer that information to their in-office EMR/EHR. Patient records are kept up-to-date and centralized, and billing and insurance procedures can remain consistent.
"We're stripping away extra steps and making it easy for CloudVisit to talk to any EMR/EHR system. Providers conduct their online sessions through CloudVisit without having to re-document those encounters. It's really that simple," Gilbert said.
CloudVisit provides custom-branded, scalable telemedicine and telepsychiatry solutions for private practices and healthcare institutions of any size. Now with CCR export, their full suite of medically minded practice management tools works in harmony with existing EMR/EHR systems for the most efficient, cloud-based provider-patient connectivity.
