edgeMED TeleHealth allows providers to extend their reach of care by leveraging secure one-on-one live video, audio and text message consultations between ambulatory patients and their primary care and specialty care physicians. Our SaaS solution is a robust cloud based HIPAA and HITECH compliant communications platform developed to enable healthcare providers to directly engage patients remotely in a “virtual care” environment.
Telemedicine is the utilization of modern telecommunications technology to provide remote, interactive healthcare services. Through nearly any web enabled computer, tablet, or smart phone, our telemedicine technology connects patients and healthcare providers in ways never before possible. edgeMED's secure, cloud based telemedicine platform is paving the way for more efficient diagnosis, treatment, and communication between healthcare providers and patients. Live, encrypted high-definition video, voice, instant messaging/chat, medical imaging, screen sharing and remote diagnostics are all a part of edgeMED's telemedicine technology solution.
Everybody benefits with the implementation of telemedicine technology as a component of healthcare delivery. By virtue of telemedicine technology, healthcare providers can extend the reach of care, improve outcomes and reduce operating costs. Health insurance providers have the option to drive their members to a more cost-effective and convenient channel for low-acuity healthcare needs, reducing their financial outlays, and even lower member premiums. Patients get a wider choice of providers, better access to care, and a new way to save on their out of pocket healthcare costs.
We believe that quality telemedicine software platforms can increase the quality and reduce the cost of healthcare worldwide. We also subscribe to the goal of the "medical home" and the ethos that healthcare should be directed by clinicians working in close partnership with their patients. This is why we ensure our telemedicine platform is extremely flexible and allows each healthcare provider to use it in the way that is best for his/her patients.
The ultimate goal of telemedicine technology development is to empower the “Medical Home.” The "Medical Home" model is based on the idea that a comprehensive coordinated approach focused on quality and safety will yield the best patient care. edgeMED's TeleHealth platform allows patient-centered, team-based, diagnosis, treatment, and communication to become reality for any healthcare provider. Our technology encourages providers and care teams to meet patients where they are and to better manage a wide range of conditions.
