Unpredictable weather events and technology outages can frustrate both patients and providers or disrupt care at a crucial time of need. Healthcare systems with well-developed disaster management plans and solid communication strategies can seamlessly prevent missed visits by leveraging an easy-to-use, scalable telehealth platform.
The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) saw planning efforts pay off in an 187% increase in telemedicine activity after a severe weather event impacted local patients and providers. Through proactive communications, UAMS shifted all in-person patient visits to virtual via Doximity Dialer; a HIPAA-secure, EHR-integrated tool, resulting in zero missed appointments during the period of severe weather.
