Tampa, FL — October 15, 2020 — DataLink Software (DataLink), a leading solution to enhance interoperability, reduce costs, improve quality scores and ensure risk adjustment accuracy, announces that its telehealth module is fully integrated into Evoke360, a point-of-care solution that is designed and developed from both provider and patient-centric perspectives. The addition of telehealth functionality allows users to schedule, conduct and document a remote patient appointment entirely within Evoke360’s EvokeSmartVisit module without having to navigate to a separate application. The same telehealth capabilities can also be leveraged without EvokeSmartVisit with any cloud-based EHR or population health management system, bringing the benefit of direct, real-time visual patient interaction and the ability to schedule and conduct most appointments from a remote setting.
“Our telehealth capabilities facilitate gap closure activities at the point of care while expanding patient access to care,” says Phillip Giarth, director, Provider Engagement, DataLink. “DataLink telehealth capabilities drive improved access to care and care coordination for providers. Telehealth and virtual care consults present opportunities to improve quality, reduce administrative burden, enable value-based care and enhance financial performance and communication.”
Evoke360’s telehealth module also enables providers to:
- Review documents and reports during the patient visit without risking disconnecting from the virtual visit
- Send email and SMS appointment notifications to confirm upcoming appointments with patients
- Coordinate specialty visits with the patient’s care team
Additionally, Evoke360 ensures that patient data gleaned during a telehealth visit are incorporated into the patient’s health record. This data, in turn, gives providers a holistic view of the patient, improving care coordination and closing gaps in care.
- Giarth adds, “The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a growing number of healthcare organizations and individuals turn to telehealth as a critical solution to improve access to quality care that protects both providers and patients from transmitting the virus. In fact, one study found that, at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic in April, 43.5% of Medicare primary care visits were provided through telehealth compared with less than 0.1% in February.”
