Patients demand more convenience when setting up appointments and communicating with their healthcare providers. People lead busy lives and can’t find time to go in for frequent check-ups. This is why healthcare providers are turning to telemedicine solutions to meet patients’ demands. 

With telemedicine software, healthcare providers can streamline workflow in their clinics and make it easier for rural patients to receive care. 

Despite the rising popularity of telemedicine solutions, many providers hesitate to implement them. Introducing new software often comes with downsides such as: 

  • High costs
  • Lengthy employee training
  • Slow implementation
  • Increased workload

Healthcare providers should choose a telemedicine solution that can integrate with their EHR to minimize downsides or eliminate them. 

Without integration, the patient information you collect must be input into Chirofusion manually. It’s additional work for the clinic staff that can be avoided by connecting the EHR with a digital telemedicine platform, such as Curogram. 

With Curogram, you can enable features such as two-way texting, online scheduling, and electronic forms without adding to the staff’s workload. Our software offers HIPAA-compliant messaging solutions for patients and clinic staff.

You don’t have to worry about a long drawn out installation process when integrating Curogram— your virtual clinic will be up and running within 48h. 

Why Is Telemedicine Integration Necessary?

The world of medicine is going digital at a quick pace. The value of digital solutions in medicine is projected to grow by 26% by 2024. Many healthcare providers that use EHRs like Chirofusion are trying to implement new telemedicine software to stay competitive. 

A telemedicine solution that integrates with your EHR can facilitate many day-to-day clinic tasks, such as scheduling appointments, providing treatment, sending visit summaries, and more. Once you integrate Chirofusion with Curogram, our software will connect with your Patient Database of Record and Schedule of Record to provide a more streamlined work experience. 

Healthcare providers that choose not to integrate a telemedicine solution are at a major disadvantage. While EHR integration may cost them time and money, it’s not nearly as costly as manual or double data entry.

It’s important to stay competitive and introduce the latest digital solutions that will improve your clinic’s efficiency and increase patient satisfaction. 

Curogram Integrates Seamlessly With Chirofusion To Enable Telemedicine & Two-Way Texting

Healthcare providers that want a simple and straightforward integration process should choose Curogram. Our software is easy to implement and even easier to use. 

It can take up to nine months to integrate most telemedicine solutions with Chirofusion. With Curogram, the process doesn’t take longer than 48h. 

One of the reasons it’s so easy to integrate our software is that it doesn’t require any IT assistance. Hiring an IT expert normally takes time and costs a lot of money, but you can skip this part of the process when integrating Curogram. 

Training is another common pain point when introducing telemedicine solutions. If it takes too long to train clinic staff, they might not work at peak efficiency during the training process. As a result, patients’ care will suffer. 

After you implement Curogram, you won’t need more than 20 minutes to teach staff to use the software. The UI is intuitive, so staff won’t have issues with adapting to our numerous features. 

Once our software connects with Chirofusion, it imports the following patient info:

  • Email
  • Phone
  • Date of birth
  • Name

It also imports the following appointment data:

  • Appointment types
  • Location
  • Appointment times
  • Provider

Curogram Integration With Other EHRs

Curogram uses advanced integration technology that helps it connect with over 700 EHRs used across the U.S. Our software can integrate with any kind of EHR or practice management system. 

No matter if you use an app-based, cloud-based, server-based, or web-browser-based EHR, you can link it with Curogram and set up a virtual clinic.

What Are the Main Benefits of Telemedicine Integration?

Telemedicine software can provide numerous benefits to healthcare providers and their patients. Some of the most notable benefits of telemedicine software integration include: 

  1. Less paperwork
  2. Improved patient outcomes
  3. Increased revenue

Cut Down on Paperwork

Paperwork is an enormous part of daily clinic work. Doctors spend more than two-thirds of their workday dealing with intake forms, prescriptions, and other documents. A telemedicine solution can help you reduce the amount of paperwork in your clinic drastically. 

After integrating Curogram, clinic staff won’t have to waste their time on paper intake forms. We offer an electronic alternative that uploads data to your clinic’s EHR automatically. With less paperwork, you will be able to admit more patients daily.

Improve Treatment Outcomes

Patients that live far from their healthcare providers often can’t come in for regular doctor’s visits. Many lack transportation options to reach their physicians, and they have no alternative healthcare options in their areas. 

Healthcare providers that integrate Curogram with their EHR can offer patients long-distance care and consultation. Virtual appointments and text messaging help patients stay in contact with their physicians. With more frequent care, a patient is more likely to see improvements in their condition. 

Increase Your Clinic’s Revenue

When using an integrated telemedicine solution, you can expect a drastic increase in clinic productivity, meaning staff will be able to handle more patients. 

Features such as two-way texting and virtual appointments can help attract patients that live far away and who wouldn’t normally request your clinic’s services. 

As a result, you can admit a much larger number of patients, which leads to increased revenue

Curogram Differentiates Between Different Types of Appointments

Once you integrate Curogram, you can offer patients virtual and in-person appointments. It’s crucial that you send appropriate reminders for both types of visits. 

The key factor for reminders is timing

For in-person doctor’s visits, patients need time to prepare and find adequate transportation. If you set the final reminder for one hour before the appointment, many rural patients won’t have enough time to reach your clinic. Setting up multiple automatic reminders can help take care of the issue. 

A patient that schedules a virtual appointment won’t need much preparation. You can set their final reminder as little as 15 minutes before the start of the visit. 

The best part about Curogram’s reminders is that you can have separate configurations for virtual and in-person appointments

Enable Custom Electronic Patient Intake Forms With Curogram

Curogram’s electronic patient intake forms make it easier to record patient health information in different ways. 

You can send these forms as automated messages before the start of an appointment, whether it’s virtual or in person. 

It’s also possible to customize the forms based on the type of appointment. For a visit with a specialist such as a cardiologist, you might want to send a form that puts more emphasis on cardiological symptoms and history. 

Curogram Integration Allows You To Set Up Customized Reminders 

One of the limitations of virtual appointments is the fact that a physician might not be able to see visible signs on the patient. Curogram enables customized reminders that can include instructions for the patient

You can instruct them to send additional documentation, such as images of visible symptoms or details regarding their pre-existing conditions, before the appointment begins. 

How Should Healthcare Providers Evaluate a Telemedicine Solution?

It’s understandable that many healthcare providers aren’t familiar with telemedicine solutions. They might not know the benefits and downsides of integrating one, nor the difficulty of implementing one.

There’s no one-size-fits-all program that will connect with your EHR perfectly. To get a better perspective on a particular telemedicine solution, you must ask the following questions:

  1. Does the solution integrate with Chirofusion?
  2. What kind of training is required to use the solution?
  3. Does your telemedicine system provide unique links for patients so that they don’t have to re-enter login data?
  4. Can you automate your reminders differently depending on the visit type?
  5. Does your platform support internal communication and file sharing?
  6. Can you customize your reminders so that you can include patient onboarding instructions?
  7. How long does the integration process take?
  8. Are there any additional integration costs?
  9. Does your telemedicine solution offer two-way texting with the patient?

What Are the Essential Features for a Telemedicine Solution?

Healthcare providers must make sure that the solution they pick has all the essential telemedicine features, such as:

  1. Electronic patient intake forms
  2. Virtual waiting rooms
  3. Smart reminders
  4. Online scheduling
  5. Two-way texting

Make Collecting Patient Data a Breeze

Most clinics collect essential health information through paper patient intake forms. There are numerous problems with this method, including:

  • Patient handwriting is often illegible
  • Clinic staff must spend hours transcribing patient data
  • Stacks of forms clutter the clinic
  • Patients must come in to fill out the forms

After integrating Curogram with your EHR, you won’t have to use paper forms ever again. Our electronic patient intake forms are a more convenient option that can speed up the data collection process. Clinic staff can send these forms to patients, who can then fill them out on their phones or desktop computers. As the patient is filling out a digital form, bad handwriting isn’t a factor. 

The data is uploaded to Chirofusion automatically, which means the clinic staff doesn’t have to transcribe anything. 

By using electronic patient intake forms, you can avoid having crowds of patients rushing to fill out paper forms in your clinic. Not only does this prevent them from catching an infectious disease in the waiting room, but it also shortens their wait time for in-person appointments. A patient can send the form to their physician and start their scheduled appointment as soon as they arrive at the clinic. 

Create a Virtual Waiting Room

Clinic staff may find it difficult to adapt to new telemedicine features, such as virtual appointments. Once patients are connected through a virtual platform, clinic staff must know where to assign each individual. If a patient has to provide their general information, they should start a virtual call with the front desk staff. Only then can they proceed to the doctor’s appointment. 

With commercial messaging apps, such as Zoom or Facetime, mix-ups are common. Patients might end up talking to their physician before they’ve been checked-in by the front desk staff, or they could be sent to the wrong appointment by accident. 

Curogram lets you set up a virtual waiting room where clinic staff will have a much easier time sorting patients. The waiting room’s view can be customized to minimize the chances of error. For example, you can configure the view to only show patients that the front desk staff has processed to physicians. 

Set Up Smart Reminders

Patients tend to miss their scheduled doctor’s appointments. Research shows that missed appointments cost U.S. healthcare providers $150 billion per year. Many patients forget about their doctor’s appointments or don’t check their schedules often.

To make sure patients go to their scheduled visit, you can send them automated text appointment reminders through Curogram. These messages can be sent multiple times and at different intervals before an appointment. Our smart reminders reduce the number of patient no-shows by 75%!

Schedule Appointments Online

Scheduling a patient appointment takes time. Once a patient calls, doctors have to check their schedule, suggest a few dates, wait for the patient to choose, and then set up an appointment. Rescheduling is even more complicated, often causing the clinic to lose money due to empty time slots. 

With Curogram, patients can schedule online. They can check out the available time slots on their phones or desktop computers and choose a date. There’s no need to involve the physician. Any changes—such as cancellations or rescheduling—are updated automatically.

Text Patients Securely

Texting is the #1 most in-demand telemedicine feature among patients. While most healthcare providers would like to implement SMS messaging in their clinics, there aren’t many texting solutions that are secure and HIPAA compliant. Using programs like Slack to communicate with patients is not a viable option, as disclosing any protected health information will lead to HIPAA violations and fines. 

Curogram offers healthcare providers a two-way secure texting solution that is fully HIPAA compliant. Clinic staff can use our messaging platform to complete the following tasks:

  • Onboard patients
  • Send details about lab orders
  • Give information about prescriptions
  • Send electronic patient intake forms
  • Send payment links
  • Give information about doctor’s appointments

Our telemedicine solution will generate a local business number for your clinic, which you can connect with your Google Business profile, making it easier for patients to find your number. 

Curogram allows you to create automated template answers for common patient queries. If patients ask the same questions repeatedly, the staff doesn’t have to type out the same response every time. 

For more specific queries, you can filter messages by the medical field it pertains to. For example, should a patient ask questions about a procedure such as an MRI, you can have this message routed to a radiologist. 

Our texting platform doesn’t send protected health information via text directly. Instead, we send secure links that only the patient can access. This way, physicians can share information such as lab results and visit summaries without worrying about HIPAA violations. 

Fuse Curogram With Chirofusion To Enable the Best Telemedicine Features

Curogram's main goals are to increase your clinic's productivity and bring in more patients. Our software can facilitate many tedious clinic tasks, such as scheduling and answering patient queries while making it easier to collect and store data.
