It’s a New Year and a new opportunity to build momentum with your telehealth practice.
Whether you hope to see all your patients over telehealth or only use telehealth for special situations, these tips will set you on the right path for 2024.
So what are you waiting for? Build on your telehealth success with these quick and easy steps!
1. Review your BAA
It’s best practice to review your business associate agreement (BAA) annually, and the New Year is a great time to make sure everything is up-to-date.
Doxy.me is designed for healthcare—which means we know HIPAA requirements. With a ready-to-sign BAA included with every account, we make it easy to generate and update your agreement.
2. Personalize your profile
Give your patients a great first impression. A friendly face can help build the patient-provider relationship—before the call even starts.
How do you do all this? Simply upload a photo to your account profile.
A photo of yourself can help you look more professional and give your patients a sense of confidence from the start.
You can also add your credentials and specialty when you update your profile.
3. Update notification settings
Notifications give you the freedom to focus on tasks without worrying about missing a patient. Choose to get notifications wherever you are most likely to see them—and turn the rest off!
Free Doxy.me accounts have browser notifications so that even if you’re on a different web page, you instantly know when a patient is ready to start their call.
Pro users have a few more options, including browser, email, and text notifications.
4. Check your telehealth analytics
Make informed decisions with the help of analytics. Stay on track this year when you use usage analytics and meeting history data.
Understanding your telehealth usage can help you plan ahead. For example, you can better plan for certain trends, like a rise in visits around certain times of the year.
Curious to know exactly how many telehealth calls you’ve had? The usage page shows your:
- Total number of sessions
- Telehealth minutes
- Average session time
You can break this information down into the past seven days, each month, and more.
Meeting history data
The meeting history tab shows all meeting history for your telehealth account. This information can be exported into a CSV.
This information can be helpful for documentation, billing, and insurance purposes.
5. Have a game plan in place
“Hello? Can you hear me?”
We’ve all been there.
Thankfully, we have tools in place that can improve your call quality. Before the call starts, a pre-call test can get you on the right track.
If you experience issues during the call, try these steps:
- Check your Wi-Fi connection
- Try troubleshooting the call
- Switch to an audio-only call by turning off your video
Knowing how to quickly troubleshoot a call can save you (and your patients) a lot of frustration, so we always recommend keeping this in mind!
