CheckedUp announced the launch of CheckedUp Virtual Visits, a telemedicine system designed to improve virtual specialty care. CheckedUp Virtual Visits was created to keep patients and physicians at the center of pivotal health care decisions as “point of care” engagement evolves with patient needs and becomes increasingly digital.
“From early on, our leadership team viewed the COVID-19 crisis as an unprecedented challenge requiring an innovative response,” Mark Goethals, Vice President of Marketing, CheckedUp, said in a company news release. “Our efforts are focused on a new, post-COVID healthcare delivery landscape, delivering the service and functionality of a virtual examination room to patients and enabling providers to deliver superior virtual patient care. CheckedUp Virtual Visits allows physicians to meet their patients when and where they are, while providing innovative tools for providers and patients during their digital consultation. We are also happy to extend that accessibility to our partners in the life sciences, so that they can be a part of tomorrow’s health care conversations.”
CheckedUp Virtual Visits says it offers advantages over traditional telemedicine systems. It simplifies scheduling and operations, allows patients to see the dedicated specialist they know and trust, and brings the same easy to use technologies physicians use in the physical exam room, into the virtual realm. CheckedUp Virtual Visits is designed to replicate the patient and physician experience in a virtual setting, streamline administrative efforts by tracking physicians’ personal notes and information regarding every consult, and remain HIPAA compliant.
