The latest announcement enables patients to circumvent the inconveniences of in-person visits. Patients can avoid the commute, wait times, and scheduling conflicts using a HIPAA-compliant secure video portal.
After creating an account and filling out general information online, patients can schedule their telemedicine appointment. Once scheduled, seeing a provider requires a reliable internet connection and a webcam.
The center’s telemedicine solution can track and monitor sleeping patterns. Patients can now input their sleep schedules on the digital platform so their sleep medicine specialist can better understand their nighttime routines. The system will chart their progress via personalized sleep diaries. The telemedicine software is also compatible with wearable technology and accepts data from an Apple Watch or Fitbit. Provider-assigned questionnaires can be added to the diary to monitor and track trends.
The Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center uses HIPAA-compliant telemedicine technology and values the confidentiality of patient data. Security measures safeguarding a patient’s privacy include two-step login verification, secure file storage protocols, and data encryption.
The latest announcement provides quality, safe, and convenient sleep consultations without having to deal with the hassles associated with traveling.
Founder and Medical Director Ronald A. Popper, MD, FCCP, FAASM, DABSM, heads the Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center. Dr. Popper is double board certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine and the American Board of Internal Medicine and is an alumnus of Michigan State University.
A spokesperson for the center said, “By eliminating the barrier of distance, telemedicine improves access to care. It saves time and reduces travel expenses, making health care more efficient. While it used to represent the future of medicine, telemedicine is here now – and it is available to you at Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center.”
