SnapMD Launches VCMedu™ Telehealth Licensing Program for Educational Institutions
Virtual Care Management educational licensing provides healthcare training facilities with access to award-winning telehealth technology
Los Angeles, CA – August 7, 2018 – SnapMD, a full-service enterprise telehealth technology innovator and solutions provider, announced today the introduction of VCMedu™, a licensing program for the academic community to launch the Virtual Care Management (VCM) software platform as part of a competency-based telehealth curriculum. The VCM platform digitally simulates all phases of care for a virtualized medical clinic and gives students hands-on experience in the digital exam room in preparation for their role as future medical professionals.
SnapMD’s VCM platform is a turnkey telehealth solution with fully integrated clinical capabilities and includes all the features and functions needed to practice any form of medicine suitable for telehealth. Designed specifically for healthcare providers to launch a virtual medical clinic and robust digital exam rooms, the VCM software allows healthcare operators to manage their telehealth service lines and deliver virtual, high-quality and coordinated care across the continuum. Students are able to experience real-time virtual visits with all the tools required for managing and engaging patients during the diagnostic, active treatment and follow-up phases of care.
VCMedu is a subscription licensing program with a simple, flat site-license fee structure. The program is designed to work collaboratively with healthcare training facilities to teach all provider levels the remote care skills required for students to enter professional practice. Additional benefits of the VCMedu program include:
- Professional grade HIPAA, HITECH and COPPA-compliant software;
- Program availability for the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and the Caribbean;
- 24/7 end-user technology support;
- Enterprise licensing to all accredited schools, universities and institutes.
“As telemedicine is steadily becoming a standard part of the care delivery toolset, students striving to become healthcare professionals need to be fully prepared to help deliver these types of services. With this top of mind, SnapMD created VCMedu to work hand-in-hand with educational institutions and their telehealth curriculums as they prepare medical students for their careers,” said Dave Skibinski, president and CEO of SnapMD. “In fact, the recent proposed changes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services provide an encouraging development on future telehealth reimbursement and the bolstered financial support providers may have as they expand into virtual care.”
SnapMD recently announced that the University of San Diego Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science selected the VCM platform as the foundation of its “Telehealth and Emerging Technology” competency-based telehealth curriculum. According to Dr. Jonathan Mack, director of the health care informatics and nursing informatics programs, “SnapMD offers the best telemedicine platform in the country.”
The VCM platform empowers students with hands-on training as they conduct and experience virtual visits, gaining knowledge in telehealth etiquette and professionalism, skills to use remote patient monitoring tools, understanding of privacy/protected health information regulations, experience with interprofessional collaboration for telehealth technologies and more.
