Chapel Hill, NC – TSI Healthcare, a national leader in the sales and support of NextGen Practice Management (PM) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) solutions, has partnered with OTTO Health to deliver the next level of care to patients and providers nationwide via virtual visits. As healthcare technology continues to evolve, this partnership will propel TSI Healthcare’s providers into the next era of healthcare consumerism and increased reimbursements.
This emerging technology is the much-needed answer to today’s patient demand for accessible and convenient healthcare. In an era of long wait times, geographically dispersed patient populations, and chronic disease management, Telehealth provides practices with meaningful patient encounters via virtual visits. A 2017 survey by the Advisory Board reported that 77% of patients would consider seeing a provider virtually.
Telehealth’s growing parity laws are also making reimbursements more attainable. In fact, more than 30 states have Telehealth parity laws already in place that will reimburse certain Telehealth visits at the same rate as an in-office visit. Additionally, practice overhead caused by cancellations and no-shows are decreased as qualifying appointments such as follow-ups, test result reviews, medication reviews, and patient education can easily be scheduled as a virtual visit.
“OTTO Health is proud to partner with an organization as committed to customer service as TSI Healthcare,” said Sarah Green, CEO at OTTO Health. “This partnership will allow our mutual clients to bring the benefits of Telehealth to their practices, as well as the patients and communities they serve.”
“TSI Healthcare continuously seeks out new and innovative ways to help clinicians provide quality patient care without sacrificing productivity. We chose to partner with OTTO Health because of their outstanding commitment to provider success,” said Christian Mibelli, Vice President of Government Affairs and Client Solutions at TSI Healthcare. “As the healthcare industry continues to change, partnerships like this one will provide maximum utilization and measurable success to providers nationwide.”
