“pMD makes it very easy to enter my charges, the software is great. I find the messaging to be a nice addition! I’m able to quickly communicate about patients securely and I don’t have to log into the hospital computer and get through the firewall. pMD connects me to providers outside of my group that I consult with and makes it easy to discuss the care of our patients.”

In a recent press release, pMD, the innovation leader in health care technology, announced a new feature that allows users to communicate face-to-face via video conferencing. pMD's real-time, HIPAA-compliant video chat is easy to launch within pMD® Secure Messaging™, allowing users to stay connected with their colleagues and care teams when it matters most.

"This update transforms pMD® Clinical Communication™ from a HIPAA-compliant secure text messaging and patient-centric chat solution to a versatile communication hub," says Adam Kenney, VP of Software Engineering. "Between the existing Category 1 telehealth charge codes and the new 2019 Category 2 charges codes for Interprofessional Teleconsults and Virtual Check-Ins, our customers are excited to generate more revenue while providing the best possible care for their patients."

pMD aims to improve patient outcomes and accelerate care by connecting providers and specialists instantly with the most user-friendly video solution. By giving users a mobile option for video conferencing, pMD is driving collaboration to help care teams save time, maximize resources, and focus on what's most important: their patients. pMD's video chat capability fosters robust internal communication while keeping organizations coordinated and compliant.

According to the Journal of Patient Safety, "suboptimal exchange of information can have tragic consequences to patient's safety and survival." Inefficient communication should never be a barrier to providing excellent patient care. pMD users can expand their network seamlessly and for free, giving users a secure platform to chat about sensitive patient information, even with colleagues in different organizations. pMD's video conferencing capability provides health care professionals a way to collaborate across multiple health care settings in order to give hospitals and physicians in rural and underserved areas access to remote specialists, allow specialists to increase their reach and impact via teleconferences with providers and staff, ease transitions of care, and reduce readmissions, all while providing patients with the care they deserve.
