Telemedicine is an easily accessed, convenient way of communicating with a provider. Using AdvancedMD Patient Portal, patients can schedule and attend an e-visit with a physician, saving time and money on travel for doctor appointments.
This is ideal if patients have difficulty scheduling transportation, are from a rural area, or have lifestyles that leave little time to wait in a doctor’s office. This technology reflects CIPain’s commitment to provide the most up-to-date patient care by placing access to providers in a patient’s hands and homes.
This service allows facetime with physicians anytime, anywhere. An e-visit parallels a doctor visit enabling patients to speak with doctors in the location of their choosing; using a computer, tablet, or smartphone connected to the internet to carry out the appointment. This increases a patient’s engagement and accessibility to healthcare which has been shown to strengthen patient outcomes and satisfaction. Our providers look forward to using this service to enhance CIPain’s excellent patient care model.
Patient safety and security is our number one priority. By connecting to e-visits through the AdvancedMD Patient Portal it’s important that personal information is protected. Whether the patient is completing a routine appointment, discussing an upcoming procedure, or consulting pain management options, they can speak freely knowing their appointment is confidential. A patient’s trust is highly valued at CIPS and that value is emphasized in all parts of our practice.
