Is your Telemedicine Practice Safe and HIPAA Compliant?

COVID-19 has forced dramatic changes in most medical and optical practices. Telemedicine has become a household term in our daily vocabulary. These new changes have also opened up unforeseen benefits as well.

Finding hipaa compliant software

Many of the common video meeting softwares are not HIPAA compliant. HIPAA compliance is a requirement in any medical practice. Patient health information must be protected against any potential exposure. It is especially true when it comes to online communication with patients. The communication software must undergo vigorous testing, to prove it is robust against breach or hacking.


Easily schedule patients

Patients can just click "Schedule a Virtual Exam" on your website. Patients will be redirected to a form to gather basic information, including if they are a new or existing patient.

The responses will be sent to our HIPAA compliant ECP platform. Patients will be directed to a calendar to select preferred date and time. ECP's can block times they are unavailable. The calendar will auto block for newly scheduled exams. Patient's contact information will auto-populate into the calendar invite. Confirmation emails will be sent to both patient and ECP. Patients can opt in for text reminders and also to add the event to their calendar.

At the time of the scheduled visit patient can enter the patient waiting room.




The Vmax Voice Guided Patient Subjective Refractor (VASR) is ideally suited for telemedicine. Its voice guidance walks the patient step-by-step through the refraction. Utilizing a telemedicine platform, the VASR now can be conducted using both voice and video for eVisits.

The operator can remotely control all functions of the VASR refractor, whether it is in the next room, or in the next town. Tele-Refraction automatically provides you with a safe working distance. It may also save doctor chair time, without moving from room-to-room to meet the patient.

The accuracy of VASR refraction system has been demonstrated in multiple clinical studies -- One at the Southern College of Optometry and several at MD group practices. It has been shown repeatedly that the VASR produces essentially equivalent refraction results as an optometrist. The results were published in peer review journals and were submitted to be presented at the American Academy of Optometry and also in the Ophthalmology.
