Visionflex’s telehealth platform comes to MediRecords’ EHR, practice management systems
Australian health IT providers Visionflex and MediRecords have partnered to combine their technology offerings.
According to a press statement, the companies are working to integrate Visionflex’s video conferencing platform Vision with MediRecords’ cloud-based EHR and practice management systems.
Their aim is to form a video-conference telehealth system “designed for collaborative, multidisciplinary and evidence-based decision making”.
The integration, it was said, will allow doctors to examine patients remotely via video telehealth using blood pressure and blood sugar monitor, stethoscope, pulse oximeter, ECG, thermometer and weight scales. The collected health data during examinations will be automatically saved to patient files on MediRecords.
The Vision platform also enables physicians to accommodate multiple video participants and simultaneously examine them.
