SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, and Beam Health Group just announced their partnership to integrate Beam’s mobile app with DrChrono’s EHR, giving physicians a means to upgrade their practices with the ability to have patient appointments via smartphone.
Now physician practices using DrChrono’s EHR platform can download Beam and immediately start seeing their patients via HD, HIPAA compliant video consults. Beam also offers free marketing materials and is a tool to both increase frequency and volume of appointments with existing patients and to grow a practice’s reach to new patients.
Beam also gives patients in rural and underserved areas access to primary care doctors and specialists. Its platform allows patients who may otherwise have to travel significant distances or take time away from work an easy way to obtain quality healthcare.
Beam is to telemedicine what companies like Grubhub are to food delivery. Many alternative telehealth companies hire their own doctors the same way old pizza joints would hire their own drivers. Beam takes the opposite approach and simply gives the ability to do telemedicine to brick-and-mortar medical practices, in the same way that Grubhub gives the capability of delivery to traditional restaurants.
“Large IDNs, health systems and hospitals are purchasing, acquiring and partnering with smaller individual offices across the country, making it increasingly difficult for private practitioners to thrive; the traditional telemedicine model has, in some ways, served to further this trend,” said Ranga Jayawardena, CCO and Co-Founder of Beam Health. “Most telemedicine companies are vertically integrated practices that hire physicians to provide remote consults. Beam flips the traditional telehealth model on its head; instead of hiring physicians to do telemedicine, Beam offers providers a means to easily add telemedicine to their practices through our mobile app, Beam Health. With our integration into DrChrono, practices all over the country, can now use the app within their EHR to immediately make telemedicine part of their practice.”
“Our mission is to enable the medical practice of the future with the very best technology, and we see amazing synergy with the Beam Health team,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and Co-Founder of DrChrono. “Telemedicine technology is part of our future. Many practices want to provide a telemedicine experience and through the Beam Health app, it is possible for a physician to see a patient easily.”
About Beam Health
Beam is the only telemedicine network that is free to sign up on. Any healthcare provider can download Beam’s mobile app and immediately invite their patients to have telemedicine consults. Beam runs customizable marketing campaigns for all of their customers via text, email, print and online channels. Its service enables physicians to increase their profitability while improving patient outcomes and satisfaction. Beam is different than other telemedicine companies in 3 key ways: it is free to launch for providers, any doctor can use its service with zero training or onboarding time and Beam is not attempting to become its own medical practice. Beam takes $10 per consult as a service fee, and the provider keeps the rest of the revenue generated from each consult.
DrChrono focuses on bringing the medical practice of the future to reality; the company built the first iPad EHR. DrChrono creates the best electronic health record, practice management, medical billing and revenue cycle management experience for physicians and patients; the health platform was built for iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch and the web. The EHR includes customizable medical forms, e-prescribing, real-time patient eligibility checks, patient portal and more. The Healthcare App Directory offers a multitude of apps that a practice can select from to bundle in and a medical API for healthcare app developers.
