Digital Wellness Center: The Gold Standard of Virtual Care
Virtual visits, often referred to as telehealth, deliver care to individuals when and where it’s most convenient to them, making it an excellent option for workers, families, and dispersed populations across the country. However, not all platforms are created equal.
For the world’s leading organizations, the healthcare industry represents a source of frustrating risk and offering their people virtual health services is a stopgap. It provides convenient access, especially in a work from home environment, yet it often lacks continuity and isn’t comprehensive. But what if having access to virtual healthcare meant getting more, not less? That’s where the Digital Wellness Center comes in to help employees and their families tap into an integrated medical practice in the cloud.
Given the accelerated shift to a virtual preferred environment in March 2020, Premise Health accelerated the launch of our digital offerings to meet the needs of members and clients across the country. Today, our members have embraced a virtual-first approach across the board. The data speaks for itself:
3,600% increase in scheduled virtual visits YOY
Members engage with providers virtually 50% of the time and in-person the other 50%
Digital Wellness Center: Next-generation care that’s more convenient and connected
The Digital Wellness Center delivers virtual care to members in all 50 states through a single, secure, cloud-based portal from a centralized care team. Taking a member-centered approach that spans primary care through specialty care, a cross-functional team works together to deliver a broad spectrum of healthcare services. The Digital Wellness Center supports and guides members through their care journeys, serving as trusted partners and allies along the way.
The solutions that power the Digital Wellness Center include:
- Virtual primary care – Gives members primary care whenever and wherever they need it, creating a medical hub for them to better manage their health and get expert help navigating local care as needed.
- Virtual behavioral health – Provides convenient, one-on-one access to counseling from the comforts of home for optimal mental and emotional wellbeing.
- Virtual occupational health – Leverages centralized teams to deliver medically appropriate guidance for work-related injuries and illnesses, nurse triage and first aid, and advice on safe return-to-work strategies and more.
- Virtual pharmacy – Going beyond simply dispensing medication, pharmacists play an essential role on the care team by helping providers and members make smarter healthcare decisions.
- Connected Care+ – Leverages predictive analytics, advanced technology, and best-in-class partnerships to guide members to better outcomes with lower costs.
With these essential healthcare products under one virtual roof, it’s easier for members to prioritize health as it grants access to high-quality care when, where, and how it’s most convenient for them and their families.
Value-based care from a centralized team
The Digital Wellness Center team works day in and day out with members, creating trusted relationships and deeper engagement that yields better health results. From our physicians who quarterback primary care to our non-clinical support team who guides members throughout their journeys – our dedicated team is available to members on-demand helping them navigate care across the ecosystem.
Virtual care with a personal touch
This level of convenience makes calling a medical professional as easy as phoning a friend and gives members someone to reach out to with questions big or small, 24/7. It’s like when doctors used to make house calls, only better. It’s seamless, high-tech but still high-touch, and available to members when, where, and how it’s most convenient to them.
Integrated technology platform
Over-complicated healthcare technology can be a barrier for many people causing them to opt out of care altogether. The Digital Wellness Center makes outdated technology a thing of the past with My Premise Health, the secure member portal that provides a convenient way for members to schedule appointments, access a provider, and manage their health anytime, anywhere. And unlike other telehealth providers the platform is powered by Epic, the nation’s leading electronic health record platform that serves as a centralized hub for more than 50% of patients in the U.S. This allows for a seamless flow of information and solves for high-value total population care that is fully integrated across digital and physical provider teams.
Partnering with top healthcare analytics software
We also leverage best-in-class partnerships with Deerwalk and Healthcare Bluebook. These platforms inform data-driven insights that give our providers and non-clinical support teams the capability to make more intelligent, strategic decisions when it comes to member care.
A member portal that does it all
Whether members are on the go or at home, they can access all their healthcare needs in one central place via My Premise Health. Making appointments, refilling medications, viewing records, filling out forms, and even seeing a provider are made possible through this secure member portal.
