MedicalDirector launches integrated telehealth capability

Clinical and practice management software vendor MedicalDirector has launched an integrated telehealth capability in its cloud-based Helix system, with similar functionality to be made available in MedicalDirector Clinical in the near future.

Patients will be sent a secure link prior to their appointment and the GP simply needs to launch a telehealth consultation from within the patient's record. The patient's notes and history are displayed in a window alongside the video stream and GPs can update the record during the consult.

It makes sense that the winners of the telehealth software race will be PMS providers; they already have the attention of the audience. I think there is no need to charge GPs for access to WebRTC though, it should be part of MD's marketing budget to offer it gratis as a differentiator. The feds have been almost forceful with their messaging around primary care not paying for telehealth software, and even walking back statements to focus on telephone. The future of primary care isn't adding video though; it's much deeper than that.
