More than Telemedicine.
Today, telemedicine should be about more than technology.
That's why Access Physicians designed its business around the very best patient care possible.
Designed by physician leaders. For hospitals. For patients.
We start with the medicine. We start with our physicians. With our network of more than 600 specialists and subspecialists from some of the nation’s most esteemed health care systems and academic medical centers, every hospital in every community can give its patients world-class care.
We facilitate that care with our technology. Our telemedicine carts are designed by physicians who understand how powerful technology can be but also how it can obstruct and frustrate if not done well.
And, we support that care by working with hospitals to make it financially sustainable.
Technology That Works … For Hospitals, Providers and Patients
When we founded Access Physicians, we started with the premise that we could and should bring high quality specialty care to more patients, particularly those with complex, high-acuity conditions. We knew we could do this through telemedicine. But, we were frustrated with existing technology. None of it was designed to facilitate a better health care experience and outcome for the patient, and none of it was at a reliability or usability level we felt was necessary to support – not impede – care delivery. So, we built our own. As physicians working in hospitals, we understand how powerful technology can be, but we’ve also experienced technology that obstructs and frustrates. We brought all that experience and knowledge to bear on how we created our telemedicine cart.
Focus on Sustainability
Too often, technology has been foisted on the health care system, and its promises go unrealized. So, we designed a new process. Every telemedicine partnership we enter into with a hospital is designed and implemented around the goals, protocols and practices of each hospital. We are accountable to those. For our success and yours, we work with on-site physicians, nurses and information technology staff to ensure they are comfortable with our partnership before we see a single patient.
And, we work to make telemedicine an easier lift for cash-strapped hospitals. For telemedicine to be within reach of only the largest health systems runs counter to its very promise and utility – of increasing access to care in underserved areas and for underserved populations. We work with every partner hospital to make telemedicine programs financially feasible to implement and, more importantly, to sustain.
