NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — VisuWell has been awarded the contract for Nevada Health Centers’ comprehensive telemedicine initiative. Established in 1977, Nevada Health Centers is the largest provider of primary care for uninsured, underinsured, and geographically isolated patients in Nevada. The organization conducts over 150,000 patient encounters annually through 17 locations and utilizes the VisuWell platform to expand access and improve convenience for patients.
“We are excited to have VisuWell as our partner in launching our first telemedicine initiative,” said Corie Nieto, director of telehealth services for Nevada Health Centers. “VisuWell allows us to extend hours and coverage in low population areas and expand programs, such as our school-based services. The combination of platform options provided by VisuWell is something that exceeds what is available from other vendors as a package. The platform is browser-deployed, providing flexibility to reach our goal of extending services directly to patient homes, yet also supports diagnostic peripherals when connecting to our own centers and specialty consult partners.”
The VisuWell platform accommodates workflows throughout health systems and provider groups, allowing for deployment of unique solutions associated with various sub-organizations and locations. Integration options are extensive and include the 3M Littmann Stethoscope, Horus Scope, Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras, legacy SIP endpoints, and telemedicine carts, as well as the organization’s native EHR. VisuWell maintains a consumer-first approach that is browser-deployed, device agnostic, and plugin-free, creating an unparalleled patient experience.
“Nevada Health Centers is attacking one of the greatest challenges in healthcare – limited access to care – and we are excited to help them achieve their goals,” said Sam Johnson, CEO, VisuWell. “Our goal at VisuWell is to offer the most robust set of enterprise-ready options that provide limitless scalability, open device integration, and a myriad of workflow options that are superior to other options on the market. Corie and her team are innovators in the community health center model and it will be exciting to watch them as they advance their telemedicine strategy.”
