COLD SPRING, N.Y., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Telemedicine software provider CloudVisit™ is bringing some holiday cheer to the ease and affordability of telepsychiatry with a free Google Chromebook. Providing a fully-secure telemedicine software, CloudVisit™ revolutionizes how psychiatrists and psychologists conduct online therapy. And while the CloudVisit™ software works perfectly on current laptops and desktops, products like the Google Chromebook make it even easier. New customers who sign up for a one or two year CloudVisit™ contract before December 31st will receive a free Google Chromebook valued at over $400. The Chromebook will come fully loaded and optimized with CloudVisit's™all-in-one telepsychiatry platform.
CloudVisit™ delivers unmatched online practice management tools that let doctors schedule, conduct, track, and invoice patient video appointments. As CloudVisit™ president and chief executive officer Daniel Gilbert sees it, the CloudVisit™ software combined with the ease and simplicity of the Google Chromebook make for a perfect pair. "Together, they create a two-pound mobile medical practice. Everything a doctor needs for successful telepsychiatry can be safely packaged and transported in a Chromebook. The free Chromebook is part of our dedication to ensuring doctors' success," he sums.
The two products were not designed in conjunction, but the fit is right. "The Chromebook is a nice, neat shell for broadband Internet," explains Gilbert. "That and the built-in webcam are all doctors need to use CloudVisit™ wherever they happen to be."
Affordable Telemedicine, Plus a Free Chromebook
During the holiday promotion, CloudVisitTM will also provide an added benefit to customers signing a two-year contract by offering the service for only $149.95 per month, along with waiving the setup fee. This amounts to a total savings of $1,215 off the standard price. Combined with the free Chromebook offer, CloudVisitTM users signing a two-year contract enjoy savings of over $1,500. CloudVisitTM also offers six-month and one-year service options priced at $224.95 and $199.95 per month respectively. For about the same investment as a cell phone plan, doctors can achieve significant practice growth and increased revenue without ever having to worry about expensive equipment or upgrades.
The experts at CloudVisit™ know ease of use and profitability are essential for telemedicine to be successful in a private practice setting. CloudVisit™ is packed with features, but the concise doctor portal centralizes availability, appointment confirmations, video session recording, and treatment notes. Patients are even billed automatically based on doctor-determined fees. Chromebook offers built-in Wi-Fi, more than 4 hours of battery life, and a 20 second boot-up. Doctors can realistically treat a full day's worth of patients remotely.
"There's no extra work for the office manager," explains Gilbert. "In fact, some doctors use telemedicine to reduce in-office time and overhead." By scheduling new patient consults, routine follow-ups, or patient monitoring online doctors can shorten office hours and potentially reduce staffing.
Protecting Patient Privacy
Both products excel when it comes to security. Doctor-patient connectivity with CloudVisit™ is backed by HIPAA-compliant security measures and all stored data is fully encrypted. With Chromebook, there's no risk of viruses and security fixes and software updates are automatically maintained. Gilbert adds, "Chromebook is a great way for doctors to separate professional and personal computer use."
Doctors who join CloudVisit™ for a one or two-year contract this month receive a free Chromebook fully loaded with the complete telemedicine platform and a free practice website. If doctors prefer to manage the CloudVisit™ software from their existing laptop or desktop, that's fine too; a simple registration verifies compatibility.
Currently available, CloudVisitTM Psychiatry is tailored to psychiatrists and psychologists. The same medically-minded connectivity will soon be available across the full range of healthcare specialties. http://psychiatry.cloudvisittm.com 888-503-3009
