“Health care providers want to expand their practices for the skyrocketing number of chronically ill patients but budgets are being squeezed by systemic reimbursement reductions, finding staff is difficult, and meeting value-based care requirements is already a struggle. Outsourced telehealth solutions and software fail because they segregate care providers and cannot imprint your carefully crafted Best Practices on their siloed services.

We connect your existing EMR with Orb Health’s Virtual Care Hub then imprint your Best Practices on our workflow empowering our certified remote providers to deliver your brand of high-quality care, incident-to your practice, while enabling comprehensive provider collaboration.”
