The Coronavirus pandemic continues to put stress on healthcare providers wanting to safely connect with their patients when in-person visits aren’t required. One particular group of healthcare providers that have suffered are ACOs. Fortunately, telemedicine platforms such as Mend are bringing much-needed assistance.
ACOs, according to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high-quality care to their Medicare patients.
This coordinated care ensures that Medicare patients get the right care at the right time while preventing medical errors and avoiding unnecessary duplication.
Telemedicine allows healthcare providers to connect with patients virtually from anywhere. ACOs can use telehealth for virtual visits that are faster, cost less to conduct and, when managed on a secure, HIPAA-compliant telemedicine platform like Mend, deliver high-quality care. This, in turn, can help ACOs and Medicare programs save on expenses.
Mend started five years ago with a clear vision: to provide the best engagement and communication tools that connect a patient with their physician or healthcare provider. Mend developed this platform from the ground up to be reliable, simple and powerful. Over the past 3 weeks, Mend has responded to COVID-19 by helping thousands of new providers launch a full-featured telemedicine program.
