Kareo Telehealth Enables The Weichman Clinic to Expand Access to Mental Health Care for Adolescents
28 January 2022
Kareo, the leading provider of cloud-based clinical and business management software solutions for independent healthcare practices and billing companies, today announced that its client, The Weichman Clinic, a highly sought-after provider for comprehensive mental health services for children in Newport Beach, California, has expanded its use of Kareo’s integrated platform. The Weichman Clinic has adopted Kareo Telehealth to see and treat patients remotely while also providing continuity of care.
Kareo’s latest enhancements to the telehealth solution include a virtual waiting room, a unique provider link for patients, the ability to schedule group appointments for up to 100 participants, and the ability to book appointments through an online provider profile. Using Kareo Telehealth, The Weichman Clinic has seen a reduction in lost revenue for time-billed appointments, as doctors and staff no longer spend time fixing broken or lost links for patients during the scheduled visit.
“Kareo technology has added tremendous value to our practice by simplifying and improving workflows to support our doctors and administrative staff,” said Dr. Jerry Weichman, Founder of The Weichman Clinic. “Telehealth is an optimal choice with all the changes to in-person visits due to illness and quarantine from COVID-19. Having a reliable telehealth solution has been crucial to providing a consistent and stable rhythm of services to our community’s kids.”
“We are pleased to see how our expanded telehealth features have improved the patient experience for the Weichman Clinic,” said Andrea Kowalski, Senior Vice President of Product for Kareo. “Providing digital access to appointments and treatments is where patient expectation is driving practices to adopt and offer accessible care options. It also reflects the shift in provider preferences to meet immediate healthcare needs.”
According to Kareo’s 2021 State of the Independent Practice survey, nearly 80% of respondents now offer telehealth visits to their patients.
The Weichman Clinic moved to Kareo’s fully integrated suite of solutions, including Kareo Clinical EHR, Kareo Practice Management, and Kareo Engage, as it has scaled its provider network. The clinic desired an all-in-one platform that streamlined workflows and improved operational efficiencies.
