Specialists On Call introduces post-acute care telemedicine platform

Specialists On Call (SOC), a supplier of telemedicine services and technology, has announced a new post-acute care solution to encompass telemedicine needs in the care continuum for acute and non-acute 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.”

The SOC Scheduled Consult Manager and On-Demand Consult Manager systems use business rule engines for configuration into a healthcare organizations clinical, operational and business needs. While especially useful to accountable care organizations, integrated delivery networks and population management programs, the SOC tool can help with chronic care, prevent emergency department readmission, improve patient access and increase patient engagement.

“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.”
