Practice telephones have become difficult to manage as this pandemic spreads across the country. OhMD gives practices the ability to communicate with patients through two-way texting, right from a computer.

And no matter which EHR you’re using (Athenahealth, Epic, Cerner, Allscripts, etc.), these patient conversations can save directly to the patient’s chart.

How does it help manage Coronavirus?

Two-way SMS texting with patients can help primary care, family practice, and pediatric practices manage and contain the spread of COVID-19.

Here’s how you can use the OhMD platform to reduce the risk to both patients and staff, all from your computer with your existing staff/phone team:

  • Manage high call volume from anxious patients
  • Send mass text messaging to patients with instructions on where to be tested and information on isolation
  • Two-way SMS texting with patients to determine if they have been traveling
  • Texting with patients prior to allowing them into your waiting room based on symptoms
  • Triage patients while eliminating unnecessary physical contact
  • Post-visit text messaging communication with patients
  • HIPAA compliant telehealth platform (video)
