Discuss with patients how telehealth can help them
During in-person visits, take time to talk with your patients about telehealth.
Review the kinds of visits that work best with telehealth, the types of telehealth services available (phone or audio/video), times you will offer these services, and the technology needed. Also, reassure patients by explaining the safety and security of virtual visits.
Additionally, be sure they understand telehealth benefits such as time savings, convenient access to care, and — most importantly — avoidance of the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other transmittable illnesses.
If you have telehealth brochures, share with your patients during the in-person visit. Or direct them to your website to view a telehealth FAQ to learn more.
Set your objectives and adjust strategies as needed
As with any new initiative, set goals and track them to gauge your success. Your goals could relate to number of telehealth visits achieved in six months, patient satisfaction measured by surveys, or increase in monthly practice revenue.
Tie your goals back to metrics to monitor for any changes. Then, assess your progress and adjust your marketing tactics to reflect what’s working and to better position your practice for telehealth success.
If you set a revenue goal, remember that transparency is key to patient collections, including copays. Ensure that patients understand what they can expect to pay for your telehealth services.
While telehealth can provide an additional revenue stream, your practice must stay current on billing guidelines, including payer timetables for reimbursing telehealth visits. If you need expert billing guidance, find out how Greenway Revenue Services can help.
