Reston, VA – July 27, 2017 Specialists On Call, Inc. (“SOC”), the largest provider of telemedicine services and technology to US hospitals, announced that it has launched a post-acute care enterprise solution. With this addition to its enterprise platform, SOC can cover all telemedicine needs across the continuum of care for acute and non-acute healthcare providers.

“We developed this scheduled consult offering to enable our clients to extend their telemedicine reach outside the four walls of their hospitals,” said Hammad Shah, CEO of SOC. “Now, we offer a singular platform for both acute and post-acute needs, which is consistent with our philosophy of introducing solutions that are easy and quick to deploy, require minimal up-front capital investment, and allow for rapid expansion.”

“This is an answer to what our health systems and network partners have been asking SOC for some time: to consolidate their telemedicine platform with a single partner that offers an end-to-end integrated enterprise solution. The solution includes hardware and software, 24/7 operations support, clinical workflow optimization support, clinical resource management, analytics, and predictive modeling,” said Sean Banerjee, CTO of SOC. “SOC remains hardware agnostic, so the new platform will work with any laptop, phone, tablet, or telemedicine cart. This brings the cost of implementation down and leverages a health system or network’s existing infrastructure investments.”

Both SOC’s Scheduled Consult Manager and On-Demand Consult Manager enterprise solutions use flexible business rules engines which are configurable to a health system’s clinical, operational, and business needs.

The solution will be especially helpful for ACOs, Integrated Delivery Networks, and health systems running population management programs subject to value-based reimbursement. The Scheduled Consult Manager will help these organizations with multiple initiatives: chronic care, acute to post-acute care transitions, ED visit prevention, improved patient access and convenience, and increased patient engagement across the continuum of care.

The solution enables a health system to decrease network leakage as well as to improve utilization, revenue potential, and work-life balance for its clinicians.

SOC will be showcasing its end-to-end telemedicine solution for acute and non-acute care settings at the AHA Leadership Summit conference held in San Diego on July 27-29, 2017.
