Telehealth Profitability Improvement

A recent survey taken by MDLinx asked providers about the effects of COVID-19 on patient volume.  One question, in particular, is shocking.  They asked, “Have you seen a drop-off inpatient office visits, and if yes, by how much?” 66% of providers who replied are experiencing a 25-100% patient visit drop with 14% not seeing patients at all.  Unfortunately, this is a serious financial situation affecting the profitability of any medical practice.  Consequently, because of the low patient visits, many providers to protect their practice are using telehealth.

Telehealth Is The Answer-Almost

With COVID-19 most physicians are moving toward telehealth visits as a matter of survival.  Forced with seeing no patients or a few telehealth patients they choose telehealth. Unfortunately, those visits are only billing for the basic visit only.  Additional coding is missed with every patient making the practice work harder for less.
