Governor Cuomo of New York Announces New Partnership with HealthCall Client
Governor Cuomo is partnering with HealthCall client, Ready Responders, to expand healthcare and help test residents in public housing.
Ready Responders uses the HealthCall platform to better manage their patient encounters and to document their visits. The platform guides paramedics and nurses in best practices of supporting, educating, and assessing patients. In addition to going into the home, Ready Responders provides virtual care via the HealthCall telehealth video service. Patients are screened remotely for Coronavirus symptoms in the comfort of their home, thus avoiding the increased risk of exposure.
Starting in New Orleans, Ready Responders has expanded rapidly across seven locations including Baton Rouge, Las Vegas, Bayou, Reno, Shreveport, New York City, and the National Capital Region. Working directly with insurance providers, Ready Responders has a mission to deliver on-demand healthcare services wherever and whenever patients need it.
To help facilitate this growth, HealthCall developed several integrations that provide significant levels of efficiency and greater economies of scale:
- Patient information is imported from insurance companies into the HealthCall Call Center tools;
- Scheduling of patient encounters is synchronized between HealthCall and the dispatch (CAD) system;
- Insurance eligibility is checked in real-time; and
- Completed encounter reports are signed electronically and automatically exported to the billing system.
