Telehealth has been a tool available to healthcare providers for some time. Very much like the specialty tool that’s purchased for a single home project and then sits unused beneath the multitude of screwdrivers, pliers, and wrenches in our toolboxes…
most clinicians have not used it much, until now.
Telehealth enables virtual face-to-face medical visits & health related services, but until recently health insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, resisted compensating medical practitioners for telehealth sessions. With the lack of insurance compensation many healthcare providers were discouraged from using video-based communications for doctor's visits.
The onset of covid-19 however, forced the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and private insurance companies to redefine their policies and broadened access to telehealth services, allowing medical practices a safer and more affordable option to treat patients using video conferencing. Many of these healthcare providers are now retooling their practices so they can use telehealth from their clinical facilities or home offices, enabling their patients to get the care they need in the comfort of their own home. While the approach to conducting these virtual visits may vary, practitioners all identify one common requirement – video session quality must be excellent.
With the increasing reliance on telehealth services, healthcare offices now need a smarter network that ensures call quality. Which means, they need a network traffic management solution that prioritizes real-time telecommunication over other non-essential business applications.
