Tampa, FL, June 13, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Nick Hernandez, CEO at ABISA, delivered a presentation last week on the topic of telemedicine at a seminar sponsored by the Hillsborough County Medical Association (HCMA) in Tampa, Florida.
The goal of the seminar was to offer an introduction to physicians who may consider implementing telemedicine in their practices. “Telemedicine is an effective delivery system for providing quality care and produces better utilization of limited healthcare resources,” says Hernandez. “The use of telemedicine has revealed high patient satisfaction and demonstrated that patients prefer telemedicine over travel or wait times.”
Florida has recently passed legislation that mandates payers report their reimbursement of telemedicine services. The bill also charges a task force to analyze data with a focus on reimbursement in order to draft comprehensive legislation in next year’s session.
In the presentation delivered by Hernandez, he noted that while telemedicine is already available to patients nationwide, programs vary significantly in their objectives, scope, and complexity. “Not all telemedicine programs are designed the same or offer the same level of service. Additionally, telemedicine needs are different for solo and small group practices than for hospitals and healthcare systems.”
ABISA offers a comprehensive range of consulting services tailored for the needs of healthcare providers. As a trusted source for operational solutions, ABISA enables physicians to concentrate more of their time on patient care.
