CheckedUp Launches Virtual Visits to Aid POC During Pandemic
CheckedUp announced yesterday the launch of their new advanced telemedicine platform for specialty care. CheckedUp Virtual Visits was created by physicians to ensure that its development meets the needs and engages patients and physicians at the point of care, especially as this space and our world become increasingly digital-centric.
“From early on, our leadership team viewed the COVID-19 crisis as an unprecedented challenge requiring an innovative response,” said Mark Goethals, Vice President of Marketing, CheckedUp [via the news release]. “Our efforts are focused on a new, post-COVID healthcare delivery landscape, delivering the service and functionality of a virtual examination room to patients and enabling providers to deliver superior virtual patient care. CheckedUp Virtual Visits allows physicians to meet their patients when and where they are, while providing innovative tools for providers and patients during their digital consultation. We are also happy to extend that accessibility to our partners in the life sciences, so that they can be a part of tomorrow’s healthcare conversations.”
Dan Schwartz, the company’s Senior Vice President, Sponsorship Sales added, “Current telemedicine systems, while serving an important role today, offer very little by way of additional in-office technologies, making exceptional care possible. We expect to change that.” Evolving beyond the traditional telehealth system, the new released noted that their HIPAA-compliant innovation “simplifies scheduling and operations, allows patients to see the dedicated specialist they know and trust, and brings the same easy to use technologies physicians use in the physical exam room, into the virtual realm.” Notes and information from each consult made by the physicians will be tracked to help further streamline the administrative side of such virtual treatment.
