About Telemedicine Software
for Doctors

As a physician or someone working for a physician practice, you probably do not have the time to research the over 275 telemedicine companies on the market. No, instead, what you want is a telemedicine company which you can trust, with good support in case  you have problems, which follows all the appropriate HIPAA regulations, and which is affordable, right?  

Well, here at Red Castle Services, we have done all the hard work for you. We have spoken with many telehealth organisations and have partnered with one which meets all of these requirements. Simply enter your information at the top of the page and someone will contact you to send you all the information, including pricing and a demo.

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is when, instead of visiting a doctor’s office in person, the patient meets with the doctor online. The patient is able to see and hear the doctor. 

In recent years, telemedicine has become more and more popular. However, ever since the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2020, popularity of the service has boomed. This was, in part, due to the social distancing protocols, but also because the federal government relaxed the HIPAA regulations surrounding telemedicine.

Why telemedicine?

COVID-19 has highlighted the benefits of telemedicine appointments. First, they allow the doctor to see the patient from anywhere. Not only is this good in times of an epidemic, but it is also very practical. Patients, even while on vacation in Europe (for example), can have online appointments with their doctors, despite being thousands of miles away.

Second, it is also practical for the doctor. He/she can treat patients with minimal overheads, such as staff and equipment. 

Third, whether we like it or not, it will play a big role in the future of medicine. Ask yourself this: Do you and your practice want to be at the head of the curve? Or at the end, caught out with changes within the industry? Start positioning your practice today for the healthcare of tomorrow.

What are the reimbursement rates for telemedicine?

The reimbursement rate for telemedicine well depend upon several factors, such as the payer, the location, and the specialty. For example, for Medicare telemedicine reimbursement, can differ to that of Workers’ Compensation telemedicine appointments, which can differ to those of private practice reimbursement rates. As such, our telemedicine partner can assist you with any of your billing inquiries.

Which are the best telemedicine platforms?

As mentioned, there are many different telemedicine providers to choose from. The best choice will depend on a variety of factors, including your specialty, your EMR system, your number of doctors, as well as what level of support you would like.

Here are Red Castle Services, we value companies which provide a high level of support, instead of the those with infuriating automated support systems with hold music! This is why we have partnered with a local telemedicine provider which provides the highest level of customer service. We know that any doctors we refer to them will be well taken care of.

Are there any free telemedicine platforms?

For smaller practices looking for free solutions, during the COVID-19 pandemic, non-HIPPA-compliant services such as Zoom or Skype are permitted. 

However, for doctors looking to position their practices for the longer term, when normal HIPAA regulations will once again apply, we recommend  partnering with a professional telemedicine software company.

Telemedicine and COVID-19

COVID-19 has pushed many doctors and patients in the direction of telehealth. This has forced some swift changes and updates from Medicaid, as  well as a temporary relaxing of HIPAA regulations.

That being said, we believe telemedicine is here to stay, even once the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided. For some doctors, telehealth will be a short term solution, while for others it will be a longterm strategy, positioning their practices at the front of an ever evolving healthcare industry.
