Covid-19Telehealth

As President Trump announced the Emergency Declaration to manage the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, SIPMD and DirectDocDial are committed to doing its part to support our communities of both providers and patients.

Effective March 6, 2020 and for the duration of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, CMS will:

·         Waive geographic restrictions, meaning patients can receive telehealth services in non-rural areas;

·         Waive originating site restrictions, meaning patients can receive telehealth services in their home;

·         Allow use of telephones that have audio and video capabilities; 

·         Allow reimbursement for any telehealth covered code, even if unrelated to COVID-19 diagnosis, screening, or treatment; and

·         Not enforce the established relationship requirement that a patient see a provider within the last three years.

For a limited time, we are providing 3 months of license for our cloud-based DirectDocDial telehealth solution at no cost to your practice. We also support your practice to provide telehealth consultation in the case of influx demand. 

The Medicare telemedicine healthcare provider fact sheet can be found here. The Medicare FAQ on these telehealth waivers can be found here. The Enforcement Discretion for telehealth remote communications during the COVID-19 notice can be found here.

For every healthcare provider, a primary concern is how to protect front-line staff and other patients from spreading the potentially deadly infection. DirectDocDial is designed to support scenarios in which patients are isolated, and medical resources are stretched. With the use of telemedicine, these physicians can conduct remote patient visits across a variety of needs and remain productive members of the medical staff.

To get set up on this no-obligation offer, click the link below or visit our Direct Doc Dial Website and one of our reps will be in touch right away. 

As you prepare to respond, do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you have about how DirectDocDial can fit into your contingency planning and we will commit to providing you with the best support possible to implement telehealth for continuum of care.
