(Nasdaq: MTBC) (Nasdaq: MTBCP), a leading provider of cloud-based healthcare IT solutions and services, today announced the release of its proprietary new telemedicine solution, called talkPHR™, which is designed to enable virtual patient encounters through MTBC’s talkEHR™.
“We started as beta-testers of talkPHR, but are now ready to fully integrate the product into our practice and into our day-to-day routine,” said Dr. Dwight A. Owens, M.D. and Chief Medical Officer at Peachstate Psychiatric Services, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia. He continued, “The new telemedicine feature has allowed our metropolitan city practice to reach patients in distant rural areas who do not have access to psychiatric services. This new feature will not only increase our practice revenue, but will also help to optimize the care that we provide to our patients. Not to mention, it helps eliminate travel time and improve productivity and efficiency.”
