Austin, Texas [April 30, 2020] (ORIGINAL: BUSINESS WIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, announced today the launch of a mobile telemedicine solution for new and existing healthcare customers of its Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform.
The operational response of healthcare organizations to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has accelerated the adoption and utilization of remote services such as telemedicine, according to a recent AbelsonTaylor survey. Telemedicine saw a 106% uptick in adoption, with more than 40% of physicians saying that they used it in March versus only 18% in 2019. In fact, remote conferencing by physicians has increased 58% on average, while office visits have plummeted in parallel, with 60% fewer patients now being seen per week in person. Unfortunately, a Sage Growth Partners survey found that most healthcare facilities are losing 10% of their annual revenues to patient leakage as patients continue to seek out-of-network services that are increasingly more accessible to them elsewhere due to advancements in innovation.
“Healthcare organizations are being forced to leverage telemedicine in order to stay competitive with their digital transformation initiatives and to address patient concerns about the safety underlying in-person visits in the wake of COVID-19,” said Randall Crowder, COO of Phunware. “Our new solution offers physicians an out-of-the-box telemedicine platform on mobile with streamlined reimbursement that keeps its referrals in-network to help reduce their patient leakage while enhancing their revenues.”
Phunware’s new telemedicine solution is fully compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and maintains seamless integrations with many of the most common practice management and electronic health record (EHR) systems. Additional features include:
- Eligibility Checks
- Co-Pay Collection
- Guaranteed Reimbursement
- Automated Patient Workflow
- Patient Notifications
- Customized Clinical Protocols
