What is TeleHealth Connect?
TeleHealth Connect is a secure medical messaging system that allows Patients to communicate with their healthcare providers via the internet.
TeleHealth Connect is designed to allow for sharing of sensitive healthcare information between patients and the healthcare community. In addition, TeleHealth Connect improves the productivity of staff and relieves the frustrations of patients trying to communicate with specific individuals to perform tasks like scheduling, prescription refills, billing inquiries, and other administrative tasks.
E-Visits and TeleHealth Connect
TeleHealth Connect can also be used to document web visits for payers that reimburse providers for this activity. This type of service is growing in the healthcare market as payers and healthcare networks recognize the savings and convenience associated with internet based medical and clinical follow up procedures. Clinical data such as lab results and even images can be transferred to the patient as part of the provider to patient secure medical email interaction.

Support and TeleHealth Connect
Email and phone support are provided free of charge. Email support requests can be initiated by using the Contact us form.
Due to the seriousness of Protected Healthcare Information [PHI] we do not support patient's use of TeleHealth Connect. Patient support of TeleHealth Connect should be provided by the Healthcare provider. We are happy to assist a provider's patient liaison in providing patient support.

Trial Version has all the security as the Full Version with limited features.
The Full Version comes with training sessions. Marketing material is also included once the Full Version has been puchaced.
Features and TeleHealth Connect
TeleHealth Connect is scaleable enough to meet the needs of a small clinic or a network of providers.
Multi user Access to Provider Inboxes
Multi user Access allows many people in the office to view all messages sent the account. This allows one user to triage messages by applying categories as they come in.
The problem with conventional email is that you must know exactly who should receive the message. With Multi user Access the patients just send one message and the office determines who replies
Out of Office Replies
Out of Office Replies allow providers to instantly display a message to Patients when they are away from the office. This feature can also be used as an auto reply.
Each message in TeleHealth Connect is logged by event, user and date. The logs can be viewed by both the Patients and the Providers.
- Sent - when then message is sent
- Viewed - when the message is viewed
- Replied - when the message is replied to and sent
- Printed - when a user prints the message
- Categorized - when a user applies a category to the message
- Deleted - when a user elects to delete a message
Networked Provider Accounts
This Feature allows a main account to control sub accounts communication privileges between each other.
Out of Network messaging
Out of Network messaging is simply the ability to send messages to other provider accounts that are not directly controlled by your account.
Directory Invitations allow a group of accounts to communicate with a patient with one invitation.
Without Directory Invitations a Patient would have to accept an invitation from each provider to begin communication.
Once the Patient accepts the Directory Invitation they have access to any new accounts that are added to that directory.
Self Enrollment for Patients
Self Enrollment allows patients to send and accept an invitation from your company website. This Feature can easily be integrated with existing websites
Without Self Enrollment an individual from your facility must send invitations to your patients wanting to communicate via TeleHealth Connect.
Provider to Provider Chat [Inner Account]
Inner Account Chat allows each member of an account to instant message with each other.
Provider to Provider Chat [Full]
Full access Chat allows an account member to instant message with any Provider they can send a message to in or out of network.
Patient Information Forms
Patient Information Forms are fully customizable forms that providers build and maintain to collect data from patients. The forms can be pushed directly to the patients to completed. The patients can also select the forms complet them on their own. Each form is sent along side a standard secure message.
Information Forms allow providers to collect information necessary to complete a patient's request. Because they are customized to your organization you only get the data you need.
As a provider you can have as many Patient Information Forms as services offered by your facility. You can also ask as many questions as needed on each Form. Each question on the form can be designated as required or optional base on your needs or preference.
Patient Information Form Question Types
- Short answer - small text area for the patient to fill in.
- Long answer - multi lined text area for the patient to fill in
- Number only - field only accepts numbers great for zip code or frequency type questions
- Date - a calendar appears to assist patients in choosing correct date
- Yes / No - gives patient a yes or no choice option
- Multiple Choice - allows patients to pick from a list of options
We are currently developing a Computerized Physician Order Entry module to fulfill CPOE meaningful use criteria.
CPOE decreases delay in order completion, reduces errors related to handwriting or transcription, allows order entry at point-of-care or off-site.
