As part of our ongoing series of telehealth interviews with EHR vendors, we’re excited to share our interview with Tim Costantino, VP, Head of Product at AdvancedMD. In this series, we talk with EHR vendors to better understand how they’re approaching telehealth. Are they developing telehealth in house or are they relying on partners? If they have their own in-house telehealth solution, what features does it include? How are they approaching integrating telehealth into their EHR and how will they handle this with partners?
Check out the interview below to learn more about how AdvancedMD is approaching telehealth both with their internal telehealth product and how they approach working with outside telehealth companies:
