How We Chose the Best Telemedicine Apps

Many vendors offer telemedicine apps to help medical professionals deliver healthcare services remotely. With so many options available, it can be difficult to determine which software is the best fit for a medical practice. We evaluated each software based on its telemedicine features, the availability of third-party integrations, and the number of reporting features it has.

Telemedicine Features

The main purpose of telemedicine software is to enable healthcare providers to deliver services using audiovisual tools. Therefore, we looked for software with a wide range of telemedicine features, including appointment scheduling, videoconferencing, and a virtual waiting room.

Integrations

To run a successful practice, healthcare providers must engage in a wide range of activities related to marketing, accounting, and patient management. The software can make it easier to manage these activities, but it's not always convenient to have several applications running at the same time. We looked for telemedicine software that integrates with other applications, eliminating the need to open separate tools.

Reports

With the right reports, physicians and practice managers can make informed decisions about staffing, billing, marketing, and patient management. We chose telemedicine software with robust reporting capabilities, including the ability to produce custom reports for each practice.
