With FollowMyHealth, patients have a single point of access regardless of their healthcare provider.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for telehealth is obvious and urgent, but organizations shouldn’t just think about the short-term solution. Providers need to understand how it fits in to a broader patient engagement strategy. FollowMyHealth has created a specialized plan to swiftly implement telehealth, no matter what EHR or patient portal a client may be using. Today more than ever, providers need to unify the patient experience, displace the cost of disparate point solutions, and meet patients where they are with a robust patient engagement platform that includes telehealth. With its step-by-step decision workbook and resources, organizations can be up and running in a matter of days.

FollowMyHealth was built natively on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, making it easy for patients to stay connected. It removes barriers that discourage interaction – such as requiring them to log into and out of multiple portals tethered to the different EHRs used by various providers. Patients have a single point of access regardless of an individual provider’s software. Plus, discrete patient-generated data flows directly back to the EHR to automatically populate the medical record.
