CareCloud Launches Cloud-Based, Pay-Per-Visit Telemedicine Solution

CareCloud announced Thursday the launch of CareCloud Telemedicine — a fully integrated solution that includes built-in insurance eligibility checking and scheduling tools, a unique pay-per-visit pricing model, and one-click activation.

According to the company’s formal announcement, simplifying clinical workflows, this approach to telemedicine seamlessly connects the dots between efficient practice management and secure video visits documented within the EHR.

CareCloud’s research finds that, while patients and doctors largely support telemedicine, there are major hurdles to ambulatory telemedicine in the practice back office — where the technology poses more process change headaches than revenue cycle management (RCM) opportunities.

Of the 922.6 million total U.S. physician office visits in 2016, only 1.2 million were telemedicine visits. With a back-office-first focus, CareCloud is on a mission to make telemedicine mainstream by making it more accessible to medical practices.

“Medical practices across the country have been telling us that they want telemedicine but were uncertain about the ROI and how to overcome the complexities of easily integrating video technology into their current workflows,” said Ken Comée, CEO of CareCloud. “Our approach reduces friction and lowers the barrier to entry for physician practices across the country by helping to schedule telemedicine visits directly in our CareCloud Central practice management solution. The real growth for telemedicine is going to come from high-performing medical practices serving their existing patients using the technology — developing a better patient experience in an iterative way.”
