Since the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the shift to telehealth, many doctors are calling and videoconferencing with patients. Mobius Clinic has several features that make telehealth easier for physicians and their staff.
Telehealth requires new workflows
Before the initial COVID-19 spike, 11% of Americans said they would use telehealth. After the pandemic, that number is 40%. In 2022, about 15% of healthcare visits are virtual across all specialties, meaning telehealth use has increased 38X from a pre-pandemic baseline.
Physicians have needed to change how they work due to this new reality. Before COVID, you had refined your in-office workflow through thousands of patient visits. But incorporating telehealth requires new ways of communicating and documenting care.
Mobius Clinic is an office-proven app that eliminates up to 70% of the EMR work on every patient visit. For years physicians have been using Mobius to streamline clinical documentation, minimize computer time, and spend more time with patients. Using Mobius can make telehealth easier as you adjust to managing a hybrid practice.
Mobius features that make telehealth easier
Mobius Clinic has dozens of time-saving functions, from premium speech-to-text medical dictation to EMR-integrated image capture. Here are three popular features of the Mobius Clinic app that can make telehealth easier.
1. Doximity Dialer Integration
Mobius partners with Doximity so that Mobius providers can quickly call patients on the go. Use this feature to call patients from your cellphone while displaying your office number.
Follow these steps to set up Doximity Dialer through the Mobius app:
- Set up your account with Doximity at https://www.doximity.com
- After you register with Doximity, open Mobius Clinic, go to “Settings,” and choose “Advanced User Profile Settings”
- Tap “Default Phone App” and select “Doximity Dialer” from the selections
You can now call any patient from Mobius Clinic, and the call will automatically route through Doximity. Using Doximity means your office line will populate on the receiving end, so you don’t have to sacrifice personal information for convenience.
2. Create Patient Case Notes
When a patient calls you outside of a scheduled visit, how should you document the encounter? Mobius makes it easy to add a patient case note directly from your mobile device.
To add a patient case note, open Mobius Clinic and search for the patient. Select their name and choose “Add Pt. Case” from the orange menu bar.
Save time by tapping the microphone icon to dictate your note. The app instantly saves everything you write to the patient’s chart.
3. Mobile Chart Access
With Mobius Clinic, it’s easy to document any patient visit from your smartphone or tablet very efficiently. Mobile documentation comes in handy if you’re using your laptop or desktop screen for a telehealth session.
Rather than switching between windows as you talk with patients, simply review and add notes on your smartphone or tablet.
Mobius makes it easy to:
- See a quick summary of the patient’s last visit
- Review and update the chart, including Allergies, Medications, Medical Problems, Vaccines, Family History, etc.
- Add diagnoses, including ICD codes
- Create and send orders to your EMR
- Access results, including lab documents, images, and insurance documents
- Confirm and update patient contact info
- Schedule a follow-up appointment in just a few seconds
- Send secure literature to your patient about their conditions
- Much more
