Ways To Create Better Telehealth Experiences

Telehealth has made medical care more accessible to patients who cannot visit the doctor’s office. This approach to medical care is an alternative to in-person consultations. In dermatology offices, specialists have adopted dermatology electronic health records (EHRs) to help them deliver exceptional services. Here are some ways to use dermatology EHRs to create better telehealth experiences for health providers and patients: 

Data-driven Care 

Electronic health records (EHRs) provide a repository for patient data that you can use in diagnosis and developing effective treatment plans. Clinical data from EHRs can help you identify the efficacy of drugs when a patient receives treatment for the same skin condition more than once. This analysis may help you prescribe drugs that work well on patients. You can use this data to better assist patients via telehealth meetings.

Streamlined Patient Virtual Care 

Dermatological conditions often require visual examination for accurate diagnosis. The healthcare providers at your dermatology facility can leverage visual technologies like high-resolution imaging to capture images of skin conditions. They can securely share these images with you through the EHR system. 

A secure system for sharing and storing images from visual exams helps you accurately picture the patient’s condition. This information helps you make personalized treatment plans, giving patients an experience similar to an in-person consultation. 

Personalized Care

Effective dermatological telehealth must prioritize personalized care for patients. You can record a patient’s medical history, lifestyle habits, and allergies in your dermatology EHR system. Using this data, you can give your patients personalized recommendations on how best to care for their skin. 

You can integrate a patient portal with your EHR system to create an interactive platform where patients can check their diagnostic test results, access educational material, and schedule appointments. This patient-centric approach to telehealth empowers patients to participate in their care. It also fosters a collaborative relationship between you and your patients.

Enhanced Data Security

Patients want the assurance that their information is secure when consulting with specialists over online platforms. Using secured online communication tools is one part of safeguarding patients’ privacy. You must also be keen on guarding patients’ data while providing telehealth services. 

EHRs are subject to HIPAA Security Rule requirements, like creating access controls, encrypting patient health information, and conducting security risk assessments. Installing a dermatology EHR system in your facility enhances data security due to the stringent data protection regulations EHR system providers follow. 

Automated Data Entry

It can be difficult for patients to fill in the same information in your system whenever they have an appointment. EHR and telehealth integration eliminates the need for duplicate data entries. When you record patient information during appointments, it automatically goes to their record in the system. 

You only need to open a patient’s record during follow-up appointments to see their information, which you can update as needed. Automated data entry reduces errors when updating patient records and provides you with up-to-date patient information.

Synchronized Patient Information 

Integrating your telehealth system with a dermatology EHR allows you to verify patients’ eligibility before booking virtual consultations. Most EHR systems link to insurance databases, allowing you to see if a patient’s insurance provider covers telehealth services. 

Knowing who is eligible for your services before booking appointments prevents confusion and delays in service delivery. You get value for your time and services by having a system that automatically guides you on who to work with. 

Streamline Your Services With Dermatology EHRs

Having the right information when you need it is key to delivering dermatology telehealth services. Incorporating a dermatology EHR system into your telehealth platform allows you to record and share patient information securely. You can make informed recommendations and offer convenient, personalized care to your patients, giving them the same value they would get from an in-person consultation. Look for a vendor who can help you implement dermatology EHRs into your practice.
