With so many options for telemedicine available, how do you choose the right one?

Here are four reasons Direct Health may be the right choice for you.

1. Get Set Up Quickly

With Direct Health, you can start seeing your patients virtually in less than a day. Once you download the app, create an account, and provide information about your medical practice, the Direct Health team will verify your credentials within the same day.

2. More Than Just a Video Call

Unlike FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, Direct Health allows you to do so much more to take care of your patients. Here are just a few ways Direct Health is more than just a video call:

  • No more language barriers. Use Direct Health’s translate function to understand over 25 languages when texting your patients.
  • Group chat with your patients and other support staff in your office. This is ideal for having medical support staff answer minor medical questions or address other needs your patients may have.
  • Keep your number private. Use Direct Health for audio and video calls without having to give out your personal number.
  • Be confident your conversations are secure. Other video platforms have security vulnerabilities, but Direct Health complies with HITECH and HIPAA. All your communications are secure and encrypted when you use Direct Health.
  • Electronically prescribe medications. Send electronic prescriptions directly through Direct Health’s app without having to log on to another system.
  • Virtually refer your patients to other physicians and specialists using Direct Health.
  • No more delayed payments. Bill your patients immediately after you finish your visits. 
3. Strengthen Your Patient Relationships

Unlike other telemedicine platforms, Direct Health strengthens your relationship with your patients. When patients use other platforms for urgent and acute conditions, they are assigned to the next doctor available. This fragments their care, and you may not learn about these visits unless your patients tell you.

With Direct Health, you manage your patients on your terms. And your patients will know when they need help, you are there for them.

4. Direct Health Costs Less and Adds More Than a Typical Answering Service

Unlike other telehealth services, Direct Health isn’t just trying to make money. Direct Health is working to build a new world of healthcare that improves the quality of life for our doctors and for our patients – building something that truly changes the world.

For a price less than most answering services, you can quickly add telemedicine to your practice. And instead of just adding cost to your practice, Direct Health brings in revenue for your practice. All while providing quality and convenient care to your patients.
