Listed as a Sample Vendor for Digital Clinical Encounters in Gartner’s 2016 Hype Cycle for Telemedicine and Virtual Care.
ST. LOUIS, MO (AUGUST 15, 2016) – Intellivisit today announced that its asynchronous smart system connecting patients and providers for the treatment of minor illnesses has been listed in the Gartner report “Hype Cycle for Telemedicine and Virtual Care, 2016” as a sample vendor for “Digital Clinical Encounters.” In the report, Gartner’s healthcare information technology analysts track technologies and evolving concepts that will have the greatest impact on telemedicine and virtual care.
The report says, regarding the business impact of “Digital Clinical Counters” solutions, “These will be transformational systems that can substantially increase both patient and clinician satisfaction, and deliver high quality care. They have the potential to direct patients away from unnecessary emergency room visits and can improve access for encounters that require in-person visits. By automating select encounters, clinicians can focus on more complicated encounters that demand more time and attention, and that will better utilize their skills. Clinicians currently using these systems have reported that the time it takes to gather and review patient information, confirm a diagnosis, select treatment options and document the encounter can take less than two minutes.” 1
Jeff Miller, Intellivisit Chief Operating Officer, notes that through health system and employer pilots the company has been able to demonstrate this sort of cost savings for customers along with a high level of satisfaction for patients. “We are beginning to see organizations effectively harvest the benefits of telemedicine. Gartner’s analysis of this space is consistent with our experience and we are honored to be named in their report.”
