ConnectOnCall provides physicians with a new digital mobile on-call system. By updating the traditional way of taking call via answering services (texting and paging patient information is no longer compliant with United States’ legislation such as the HIPAA and HITECH Acts), ConnectOnCall also attempts to document accurately what transpires during physician / patient phone calls. Keep in mind that most of these physician/patient phone interactions occur before or after office hours, on weekends and holidays and often during the wee hours of the morning.
Having the opportunity to bypass the traditional answering service and to listen directly to the patient’s recorded message, the on-call physician may more accurately and more quickly learn the existing concern, further eliminating possible miscommunication. In addition, ConnectOnCall connects physicians to their Electronic Medical Health Records so that physicians may make better informed decisions about patients, even after hours.
Per the company’s website, other features of ConnectOnCall include compliance with HIPAA and HITECH, ability to work with both landline or mobile phones, compatibility with iOS and Android operating systems and easy setup. Detailed further, ConnectOnCall.com integrates data from the physician’s PMR or EHR both with or without an HL7 Bridge. With HL7, patient data remains both accurate and current.
In addition, patient instructions and follow up issues are sent directly to the physician’s office resulting in a higher and more efficient and seamless level of integration. As an example, when the physician documents that his or her patient requires a follow-up appointment the following day, the office staff will receive the necessary and appropriate information for that follow-up visit.
