REACH’s Comprehensive Solutions Leverage Clinical Personnel, Clinical Applications, and Telemedicine Technology to Help Healthcare Providers Deliver Time-Critical Care to Their Patients
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- REACH Health, Inc., a leading provider of comprehensive clinical telemedicine solutions, today announced that it has launched REACH Physician Services for Tele-Stroke, Tele-Neurology and Tele-ICU call coverage.
REACH Physician Services alleviates the specialist shortage by providing healthcare facilities access to a pool of physicians who bring their expertise directly to the point of care via REACH’s proven web-based clinical applications. Hospitals have the flexibility to choose how much or how little call coverage they require on an ongoing basis – from full 24/7/365 call coverage to partial coverage to fill in gaps. Additionally, hospitals can use any combination of their own physicians and REACH physicians.
“We are very excited about this new offering.” said Ken Rardin, REACH president and CEO. “REACH Physician Services, coupled with our clinical telemedicine applications, transforms the paradigm of virtual collaborative healthcare. REACH provides hospitals a flexible portfolio of resources to resolve their specialist shortage issues and to leverage the specialist resources they already have.”
REACH physicians are Board certified and subject to a rigorous qualification process prior to joining the Physician Services team. Physicians have a complete support infrastructure including a state-of-the-art 24/7/365 operations center to facilitate the virtual practice, a full-time practice management team to expedite credentialing, privileging and licensing, and a proven telemedicine platform.
Frank Lafranchise, M.D., REACH’s Chief Medical Officer stated, “At REACH, physicians have a unique opportunity to participate in an organization that differentiates itself from other telemedicine and physician services providers by creating a win-win for everyone involved – patient, hospital, payor, and physician. We employ top quality talent who utilize clinical applications that were designed by physicians who understand the challenges of the tele-health environment.”
