NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- VisuWell, the industry leader in enterprise telemedicine solutions, announces a partnership with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Institute for Digital Health & Innovation and UAMS e-Link. This partnership will enable and empower e-Link members and their patient populations, while increasing and easing accessibility to millions of consumer homes and workplaces.
"The adoption of VisuWell will position UAMS to form new and deepen existing partnerships with healthcare systems outside of UAMS by expanding direct-to-consumer telemedical care, with a special focus on areas of great need, like the Delta," said Curtis Lowery, M.D., director of the UAMS Institute for Digital Health & Innovation. "We are going to do more things outside of the hospital and office and integrate patient care into people's everyday lives. Our fully integrated solution will bring a new level of convenience for patients and providers."
As patients continue to receive increased levels of convenience through technological applications in other industries, there is increasing pressure for healthcare to meet this demand.
