    Hello every one,
                              An open option for interaction with patient during crisis and beyond.      Checkmyvitals app is not a commercial app. You access manually transmitted BS & BP data to interact virtual or otherwise. Besides, will be glad to extend support to interface weekly summary in the EMR.

    Hybrid Tel-med and M-health​

    Just a note on the app.  App is free to patients. For meaningful use they need to connect with provider site that will be your system. Since the design is to monitor  & synchronize care on individual and groups, the  provider site through internal IT, captures data directly. The data through progressive analytic gets filtered and integrated in the EMR every week end with summary. As indicated, the combination of  both Tel-med and M-helath allows those with less skill and resources use the app. Besides the app also supports dietitian and fitness physiologist. The collected data being patient generated it will be stored in your system and in the cloud through Block-Chain. We have also have created options for community health workers or deputized scheme to collect and export the data.

    Thanks for your interest and please, feel free to contact for any more info.

    Hi all: as someone already mentioned  Medicare has temporarily expanded its coverage to telehealth service.

     

    Clinicians will need to document why telehealth visit (phone or virtual visit) rather than a face to face visit was performed (COVID-19 crisis). Clinicians will need still to use the medicare verbiage to document the patient is using device. And to put in the documentation that a need of ongoing medical supplies for continuity of care are needed.

    Hopeully this helps.
