Just sign up at TrueMDWellness.com, click on the TeleHealth tab on the top menu, scroll down the page to the “GET STARTED – FREE TRIAL” button, fill out the forms and you’re ready to go.
As long as you have adequate credentials as a medical provider, you will be allowed to join our network of physicians and other high-level providers in providing telehealth services.
First, tell your patients you offer telehealth services. The TrueMD TeleHealth portal allows them to sign into their portal and fill in their information. They then can look at your schedule on the site and choose an appointment time to have a telehealth visit.
After your patient makes an appointment on your schedule, an email will be sent to the patient’s email with a link to the TrueMD TeleHealth system. On the day and time of the appointment, they will click on the link and be placed in your waiting room. You will be sent a text telling you the patient is in your waiting room.
Check your schedule to see if you have TeleHealth appointments that day. Just before the visit time, go to your computer or your mobile phone to get ready to start the visit. Make sure your video and audio equipment are working well and linking with the system. When you see the patient in the waiting room, click on the patient’s name and start the visit.
Once you sign-up for the program, you will create a Strip account. Once setup, you can charge patients for your services. Generally, we recommend around $150 per 15 to 30 minutes. Some insurance companies will cover telemedicine services. You will have to evaluate this for your office and with your insurance personnel to see how much copay or fees to charge your patient, and then you will file for the rest.
To start collecting payments, you must first setup a Stripe account if you don’t already have one.
The payment feature lets you accept credit card payments while on a call through your Strip account. If you don’t have a Stripe account:
To start your Stripe account
Go to “Account Settings” in the dashboard
Click “Connect with Stripe”
Fill out the account details on the form.
Click “Authorize access to this account”
Once setup, you can start accepting payments.
Here is the usual scenario for charging the patient for the visit via cash or at least co-pay.
Alternatively, if you make TeleHealth appointments through your office telephone system, you could have your staff make these charges before the visit on our TrueMD TeleHealth platform. In this case, all you do then is to click on the patient in the waiting room and start the visit. The payment would have already been done by your office staff at the time of scheduling the appointment. When you bring up the patient, the system will note if payment is pending or has been paid. If pending, you have the option to charge the patient at the time of the visit.
Generally, almost any type of office visit that doesn’t need a physical exam can be done via telehealth visits.
These include visits and consultations that do not necessarily require a physical exam, such as:
COVID-19 evaluations may be done via telehealth without actually doing a physical exam. This is allowed to decrease exposure to medical personnel. You can use most any device for these services, including computers and mobile devices, and they can be provided from almost anywhere, including your home or other areas and not just your physical office.
Telehealth services are broader services that refer to providing clinical and non-clinical medical services to remote or distant areas and is done by a medical doctor or higher-level practice provider. Telemedicine refers specifically to remote clinical services only and can be done by the doctor, higher level practice providers, nurses, and other medical personnel. Both use telecommunications infrastructure to deliver the care to the patient at a distant site via audio and visual methods.
Clinical services include doctor-patient visits for diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of medical problems or diseases. Non-clinical services include providing continued medical education, provider training, administrative meetings, etc. Telehealth includes surveillance, health promotion and public health functions.
To summarize, telehealth is broader and includes telemedicine; while telemedicine is less broad and is a part of telehealth. Further information can be found on the HealthIT.gov website ( https://www.healthit.gov/)
Now more than ever, telehealth services are needed, especially with the social distancing requirements that help protect medical personnel from COVID-19 and other potential infections. It can allow for improved access and improved health outcomes in cost effective ways. Moreover, patients living in more remote areas can more easily obtain clinical services without having to drive for hours to see their doctor. Remote hospitals can provide emergency and intensive care services without having a specialist doctor on site.
Most organizations support expanded use of telemedicine as an appropriate and efficient means of improving health and patient support, when performed within appropriate standards of care. New more expanded recommendations have been made due to the social distancing needed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
