eHealth Systems & Solutions
eHealth Systems & Solutions was founded in 2005 to provide telemedicine design, implementation, and management services to hospitals, health plans, and physicians interested in offering virtual consults to patients. Since its inception, eHealth Systems & Solutions has worked with integrated healthcare delivery systems, academic medical centers, FCC funded Rural Pilot Projects, and physician group practices to explore the potential of creating a sustainable business strategy that offers cost and clinically effective telemedicine services for a wide range of patients.
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of electronic communications and information technologies to provide clinical services when providers and patients are at different locations. Closely associated with telemedicine is the term telehealth, which encompasses a broader application of communication and information technologies used to support healthcare services. Videoconferencing, transmission of still images, patient portals, remote and mobile monitoring of vital signs, continuing medical education and nursing call centers are all considered part of telehealth.
Why do it?
The primary reason for pursuing telemedicine is that it addresses the triple aim of healthcare reform:
- Improving access to specialty care
- Improving outcomes by providing real-time intervention and follow-up care
- Reducing overall delivery costs (fewer unnecessary transfers and readmissions)
