4) Telemedicine Scheduling
Scheduling telemedicine visits in the Kareo platform is simple, and your staff can begin setting up video visits in a snap.
Scheduling an individual video appointment is easy. Simply select “Telemedicine” as the “Location” in Kareo and schedule the visit as you normally would.
There are two methods common methods of appointment scheduling used by Kareo clients, Mixed Scheduling and Block Scheduling. The highest performing practices use both approaches, scheduling an average of 10 telemedicine visits a week.
The mixed approach to scheduling places video visits alongside in-office encounters. The practice functions just as it does today with providers grabbing an empty office or exam room to perform telemedicine visits from the office. It is not disruptive and gives patients a great degree of flexibility when scheduling
In block scheduling, time is set aside on the calendar for consecutive telemedicine visits. This is a very efficient way of conducting many visits in short order without interruption. It also allows providers to work from home. A common practice is for providers to work from home conducting telemedicine visits in the morning, and then come into the office for the afternoon.
