Healthcare IT News names CompuGroup Medical as a company that can help providers deliver quality virtual care
With its HIPAA-certified solution, CGM ELVI Telemedicine, CompuGroup Medical US (CGM) is one of the telemedicine companies that can help hospitals and other provider organizations deliver quality virtual care, according to Healthcare IT News.
Author Bill Siwicki compiled the list of telemedicine companies as a resource for providers currently facing the challenge of seeing patients while reducing the number of in-office visits to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among patients and staff.
"As 2020 unfolds, with the COVID-19 pandemic severely testing health-system capacity, telehealth is stepping up. Virtual care and remote monitoring have never before been in the spotlight as they are today," Siwicki wrote.
CGM ELVI Telemedicine is a HIPAA-certified solution that earns its place on the list by delivering a secure, point-to-point connection that will protect patient information as it connects providers and patients for virtual appointments.
According to the article, "[CGM]'s technology works for any practice or clinic, regardless of the EHR or practice management software being used. It is web-based and compatible with multiple browsers, and patients can log in on desktop or mobile, or by downloading the CGM ELVI app from Google Play or the Apple App Store."
"Healthcare IT News is the healthcare industry's authoritative source," said Benedikt Brueckle, CEO, CompuGroup Medical US. "CGM trusts Healthcare IT News to cover the people, policies, and technology affecting healthcare in the United States, and it's an honor to see CGM ELVI Telemedicine featured at a time when telehealth is of the utmost importance."
The rise of telehealth
Telemedicine, or telehealth, is a new healthcare platform that enables virtual consultations. When doctors can reach patients from anywhere at any time, in-office visits are no longer required, and this eliminates the risk of spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus to practice staff and other patients.
In addition to offering its CGM ELVI Telemedicine software at no initial charge, CGM has made it easier for healthcare providers to adopt the new system by launching a dedicated website, cgmtelehealth.com, and a dedicated phone line, +1 (602) 680-2255.
