Verizon Business today announced enhanced access to new data sources and new partner integrations for BlueJeans Telehealth, the company’s telehealth video conferencing solution.
Among the new BlueJeans Telehealth features are:
- Command Center Dashboard: The new Televisit tab included in BlueJeans’ “command center” dashboard provides in-depth insights about telehealth activity for individual visits and at the aggregate organization-wide level.
- Patient Image Capture: This enables patients to live capture or upload images from the patient landing experience or the televisit tile. These images will then be visible to both the patient and the provider for use during the televisit.
- Redox Integration: This is an EHR-agnostic interoperability platform that integrates with more than EHR systems, so providers can use BlueJeans Telehealth to customize patient communication.
An upcoming feature is Apple Health app data expansion: Patients using an iPhone can share additional categories of their health app data including blood pressure, blood glucose, respiratory rate, height and weight, into the BlueJeans Telehealth app for their provider to view during the appointment. This feature is expected to be available “in the coming months” and will add to the existing shareable categories of heart rate, ECG, sleep, step count, fall detection data and mobility data.
“Telehealth not only improves access to healthcare, it has the potential to improve the overall experience, especially for those who face real obstacles accessing specialized services,” said Krish Ramakrishnan, BlueJeans by Verizon chief of innovation and product, in a prepared statement. “With our focus on simplified data integration, management and creating a seamless user experience, BlueJeans Telehealth is personalizing virtual care to make it easier, safer and more effective for patients and clinicians everywhere.”
Telehealth has become a priority thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. The FCC has committed over $450 million to expand access to telehealth through its Covid-19 telehealth program.
