Balancing the New Normal: Parenting, Practices, and Patients
Balancing parenting and support of health care practices and patients during COVID-19


It’s 8:00 AM, my phone is ringing, and I’m at serious risk of burning my 3-year-old’s pancakes. I’ve always been accustomed to providing phenomenal customer support, but now my most demanding customers are the toddlers sitting in front of me, awaiting their breakfast. I flip the pancake, pick up the phone, and tag in my husband. Another workday in our shelter-in-place world begins.


Business as usual while working from home



I’d like to start off by saying, I feel incredibly lucky that I am able to continue working from home, while others are facing employment difficulties or are putting themselves at a higher risk for exposure while clocking in. At pMD, we have been fortunate to offer services such as telemedicine, secure communication, and the ability for billers to access charges remotely, which has put us in the unique position of maintaining and growing our business. It is an honor to know that so many practices we work with are putting trust in our solutions to maintain exceptional standards of care for their patients, and this is a partnership we take seriously. 

What are we doing to support our practices during COVID-19?


Providing unparalleled customer support, to start. pMD offers 24/7/365 customer support. When you call pMD, you are going to talk to an actual pMD employee (and possibly their 3-year-old), someone who can answer your questions in real-time. And yes, that includes nights, weekends, holidays, and everything in between.

Remote Implementation of pMD Software for Health Care


Hands-on remote implementations for all pMD product lines are happening every day. Although COVID-19 has put many businesses on pause, we realize that our health care workers are on the front lines and are more important than ever. We are here to support our practices from the first introductory call to post-implementation and beyond.

Ensuring a Smooth Transition to pMD’s Telehealth Platform


Implementing and evolving our telehealth platform is something that has become increasingly important in the past couple of months. We realize most medical visits are now happening over a screen, and we want to ensure that our providers are still able to provide exceptional care to their patients. We are working with our practices, and their patients, to ensure a smooth transition to telehealth during these trying times and also making changes to our platform based on the feedback we receive.

Helping Practices Focus on Providing the Best Patient Care Possible


Here at pMD, our workspaces may have changed, and my coworkers may oftentimes be more immersed in the world of Sesame Street than telemedicine, but we continue to stay focused on the same things we have always strived for as a company: unparalleled support, innovation, and partnership. In this way, our practices can focus on what matters most to them: providing the best patient care possible.
