Episource Offers Independent Providers Free Virtual In-Home Health Assessment Tool in Response to COVID-19 Crisis
Innovative telehealth solution enables providers to continue connecting with patients while limiting exposure to the coronavirus
Gardena, Calif., May 19, 2020 – In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Episource, a pioneer in risk adjustment and quality solutions for healthcare payer and provider organizations, announces the expansion of its innovative HIPAA-compliant telehealth service. Providers will be able to conduct virtual in-home health assessments and connect with patients without risking exposure to the coronavirus.
Episource’s web-based, platform agnostic solution works on smartphones, tablets, and PCs. The simple application opens directly from a link in text or email, with no downloads, apps, signup or setup required. Providers can complete patient visits with encrypted and HIPAA-compliant sessions.
“During a public health crisis, it is absolutely vital that we do what we can to maintain continuous access to clinical services, especially for vulnerable populations such as the elderly and chronically ill,” said Harshith Ramesh and Sishir Reddy, Episource Co-CEOs. “We are happy to make our telehealth solution available to independent providers and their patients at this critical time.”
The Episource telehealth service also conforms to the recent Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in response to the COVID-19 emergency. This allows patients with Medicare Advantage and Medicaid health plans to attend Part B office visits (CPT codes 99204 and 99214) via telehealth, versus in-person.
