SnapMD Awarded “Best Telehealth Platform” by MedTech Breakthrough Awards Program
By: Dave Skibinski, President & CEO, SnapMD
Telehealth is rapidly expanding into health systems across the country as providers work to meet the patient demand for greater access and convenient care. Healthcare teams want to know what the best telehealth platforms are and how they can become an extension of their established medical practice to deliver high-quality, coordinated, cost-effective, and convenient virtual care. SnapMD is answering this call by helping care teams all over the U.S. implement our cloud-based Virtual Care Management (VCM) telehealth platform. For that reason, we are honored to be recognized as the “Best Telehealth Platform” by the MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.
MedTech Breakthrough is an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market. For the “Best Telehealth Platform” category, judges reviewed the growing telehealth market and how the industry looks to emulate the comprehensive clinical experience. MedTech Breakthrough recognized the value of SnapMD’s position around the evolution of Telemedicine 3.0, the next generation of technology enabling virtual visits that are supported by a true point of care that places telehealth directly in the hands of providers who have established trusted relationships with patients. SnapMD makes this concept a reality by taking care that’s traditionally been administered in high-cost centers and delivers it directly to the patient at home, work or in tertiary care settings. This is done in a cost-effective manner through secure one-on-one live video, audio and text message consultations. Our VCM platform ultimately allows for greatly improved access and quality of treatment, and, as an enterprise platform, it enables virtual care across multiple service lines and across the continuum of care.
MedTech Breakthrough explains, “SnapMD’s VCM system is recognized as the telehealth platform Breakthrough Award winner based on their unique approach of providing a comprehensive, easy-to-use, and efficient telemedicine solution that includes all the functions needed to operate virtual care services in a single suite of software. The company’s offering is used by providers nationwide to engage their patients via the secure, HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based software platform—increasing access to convenient treatments, thereby improving outcomes, enhancing productivity, and increasing patient and provider satisfaction across the continuum of care. Additionally, by integrating with existing EMR, scheduling and billing systems, the VCM system streamlines and simplifies historically complex healthcare management systems and shows promising growth and adoption across providers of all sizes and specialties.”
SnapMD is thrilled to receive the prestigious MedTech Breakthrough Award distinction for our enterprise Virtual Care Management telehealth platform. This award validates our hard work and our confidence that the next stage of telemedicine adoption – Telemedicine 3.0 – is to place telemedicine back in the hands of trusted providers to deliver high-quality care to patients with chronic conditions or whom are undergoing active treatment. By conquering this last mile in healthcare with a comprehensive approach to remote care, providers can utilize the tools of telemedicine to enhance treatment and treatment adherence, to improve outcomes and reduce the total costs of care.
