It’s not often you stumble across a product that rolls up as many applications into one bundle the way the Epiphan Pearl does. What’s even more unusual is when the company has been around nearly fifteen years and they never crossed your radar before. At first glance we were intrigued by the packaging of the Epiphan Pearl reminiscent of past products we have represented albeit updated for the digital world. Given the opportunity to go deeper and learn more, the product elicited even more excitement when we understood its application at a price point that was hard to believe.
As telemedicine’s popularity increases, so do positive patient outcomes. However, telemedicine is not only a positive development for patients. Health care providers across all segments of the industry have experienced the benefits of telehealth. Video conferencing allows health care providers to set their own schedules with reduced travel and avoid the “assembly line” nature of healthcare today. Doctors who have experience with telemedicine praise the technology for helping them deepen patient relationships and stay competitive in the marketplace. Choosing the right technology solutions is critical to achieve success with telemedicine.
As the 21st century healthcare continues to evolve, increasing numbers of physicians and other health care providers are relying on telemedicine. Currently, there are at least 42 telehealth portals in America, including TeleDoc, Doctor on Demand, and America Well. They encompass almost every segment of the health care industry, from primary care to fitness to mental health. However, many physicians are concerned about the legality of telehealth, despite positive patient outcomes. Being well-versed in current Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) laws and how they impact telemedicine can allay many of those concerns.
In a society ever more dependent on technology, protection of privacy and personal data is key. Those who work in the health care industry must be particularly vigilant. In the past several years, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s (HIPAA’s) privacy and security rules have become more stringent. Not only health care providers, but also those who work with them, must be aware of how to protect data. If you provide cloud-based technology to the health care industry, stay abreast of advances in the field meant to protect yourself as well as your colleagues.
