Listen as Dr. Steven Lamie explains how the Thirlby Clinic has taken a more proactive approach during the pandemic by utilizing healow TeleVisits™ and the Chronic Care module to stay up to date with follow-ups for chronically ill patients. The Thirbly Clinic recently initiated healow CHECK-IN™ and healow® Open Access® to create a seamless workflow for their patients that have to come into the office.
“Over the course of six months, we were able to get 44% of these patients’ A1c to less than 8. We presented this data twice now at the American Diabetes Association International meeting, so we are quite successful in using Chronic Care Management. I just see this tool rapidly expanding and helping us take care of these chronically ill patients.”
