Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) Student Health Services is adapting to today’s ever-changing society due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) by offering a telehealth platform to meet the medical needs of students, faculty and staff.
Telehealth — delivering health care through use of a laptop, smartphone, tablet or computer with video capability — is quickly becoming the new norm for universities, and in the private health sector, to reach patients in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, said Dr. Melodye M. Harvey, AUM Student Health Services family nurse practitioner.
To use the new telehealth portal, students, faculty and staff can contact Student Health Services to request a virtual appointment with Dr. Harvey. At the designated appointment time, patients will receive a text message inviting them to a video chat room. Patients will have 10 minutes to enter the room before the link expires.
“MedConnectHealth has provided a seamless transition to telehealth (virtual health visits). This alternative healthcare platform allows patients to connect with their health care provider in the comfort of their own setting while maintaining confidentiality. Special thanks to MedConnectHealth in facilitating access and continuity of care for students, faculty, and staff at Auburn University Montgomery.”– Nurse Practitioner Dr. Melodye M. Harvey

MedConnect is pleased to announce the release of its Chronic Care Management module. This latest addition allows providers to focus on improving patient engagement and quality of care while increasing revenue for the practice. The CMS value-based program offers reimbursement for practices that provide care coordination and care management to patients suffering from multiple chronic conditions. Participation in the CMS Chronic Care Management Program increases the potential incentives practices can earn from the Merit-based Incentive Payment System. Maintaining compliance with the program provisions is necessary to be eligible for incentive payments. MedConnect’s CCM module provides an easy-to-use documentation tool to record staff activity while automatically calculating coordination of care activity for a given month. Our Chronic Care Management module will help ensure you meet those requirements while also boosting patient health and overall satisfaction.
The Chronic Care Management module will be included in MedConnect’s latest software update, currently scheduled for release to all clients on 7/28/17.
