/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Azalea Health (Azalea), a leading provider of cloud-based healthcare IT solutions and services, announced today it would offer its telehealth app for free to providers using Azalea EHR. According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll, nearly six in ten fear widespread coronavirus outbreak and four in ten fear themselves or family being infected. By leveraging telehealth, providers can mitigate patient concerns about traveling and public spaces by providing valuable preventative care virtually.
A large number of Azalea clinicians deliver care in disparate communities. These populations tend to have higher rates of chronic conditions, comorbidities, and mortality. Azalea's telehealth app allows providers to deliver preventative medicine to the vulnerable and at-risk patients in their communities. Additionally, many clinics run on a tight financial budget. Increased cancellations due to perceived Coronavirus risk could negatively impact revenue and their ability to provide care in the nation's most needy populations. Telehealth is an effective approach to mitigating revenue risks while ensuring the continuity of care.
"We have witnessed the effectiveness of telehealth with clinicians. Knowing its power, our leadership team expressed urgency in getting this tool in the hands of all of our physicians. It will be useful in keeping patients healthy and out of emergency departments and hospitals. We want to support our clients and ensure that they have the tools they need to support their patients and communities during this critical time," commented Baha Zeidan
, Azalea CEO. "We hope that this uncertain period can lead to an opportunity that opens doors to serious consideration of the value telehealth can bring to practices and patients. And our team is on hand to support these clinicians, as telehealth will be new to many."
Integrated with Azalea EHR, Azalea Telehealth provides an easy to use app to connect remotely with patients or to allow providers to connect to specialists for consults. Being native to the Azalea platform makes the telehealth app simple to deploy and intuitive to use as users are already familiar with the software.
