  • MEMBER VOICES: A physician mom's take on telemedicine

    I know most of us have started adapting to the new way of life in our practice. However, some of us are still skeptical. I'm hoping to reach out to the skeptical ones among us.

    By Jonathan Nelson

    The second episode of our brand-new podcast, Texas Family Doc Talk, is out and it’s all about telemedicine. As family physicians across the country see their number of patient visits plummet, many are turning to telemedicine in hopes of providing consistent, comprehensive care to their patients while maintaining enough cash flow to keep the doors open.

    In the podcast, TAFP CEO Tom Banning and I speak with three experts from Catalyst Health Network in Dallas. Jeff Bullard, MD, chief medical officer for Catalyst, describes the experience of transitioning to virtual care. Trevor Clifton, senior financial analyst for StratiFi Health, discusses financial models for moving most of your visits to telemedicine. And Stephenie Tollett, director of revenue cycle for StratiFi Health, talks with us about third-party contract and claims payment issues for telemedicine.
