AppSwarm Announces Launch of SwarmConnect Telehealth Video Service
TULSA, OK, Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- AppSwarm, Corp. (OTC: SWRM), a software development company and aggregator of mobile applications, announces the launch of telehealth services through its video communication platform, SwarmConnect.
SwarmConnect, in collaboration with TeleHealthSelect, now offers companies, medical clinics, healthcare professionals, and social service providers a HIPAA-compliant telemedicine video communication service.
Telehealth provides remote non-clinical services, such as provider training, administrative meetings, and continuing medical education, in addition to clinical services.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) makes patient confidentiality a legal right, and the protections necessary for that have to be abided by across the medical community.
SwarmConnect telehealth will provide a HIPAA compliant browser based encrypted platform for healthcare professionals to communicate with patients. Our audiovisual data is secured via encryption, such as Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS), which encrypts the data streams, reducing the risk of unauthorized entities eavesdropping on the video conference.
Benefits to Healthcare Providers
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) says that telehealth improves healthcare quality, particularly in rural settings based on how the technology can improve service delivery and treatment of acute conditions.
In addition to reducing overhead costs per visit, telehealth is less time-consuming, both for the patient and provider, and provides healthcare solution for social distancing. Telehealth can also allow physicians to bill for uncompensated phone calls while also extending hours to capture more bllable time.
Currently, 76% of U.S. hospitals connect with patients and consulting practitioners at a distance through the use of video and other technology. Almost every state Medicaid program has some form of coverage for telehealth services and private payers are embracing coverage for many telehealth services.
Today, 35 states and the District of Columbia have enacted “parity” laws, which generally require health insurers to cover services provided via telehealth the same way they would reimburse for services provided in person.
SwarmConnect will be developing its telehealth video platform, in collaboration with TeleHealthSelect, to assist doctors, clinics, and mental health service providers in providing video communication services to their patients.
