Quick Summary: The adoption of telehealth in the healthcare industry is expanding.
As per the reports “telehealth utilization has stabilized at levels 38X higher than before the pandemic”.
However, the major challenge still remains the same as the challenge is associated with data. Because providers using telemedicine platforms cannot be able to offer quality care without direct and easy access to clinical data.
In other words, there is now no sense in building a telemedicine platform that cannot be able to fetch and share data with EHR.
Thus, sensing the urgency, in this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know about integrating EHR with telehealth.
Why is telehealth EHR integration mandatory for the healthcare industry?
In virtual care, the most essential thing for healthcare professionals is to provide quality care and a positive experience to the patient.
For that, seamless access to the clinical data of patients is required which is generally stored in EHR and EMR.
Things become tedious and complicated for providers when they provide care using any 3rd party digital solutions such as telehealth solutions to provide care as they now have to keep the window of EHR open while providing care through telemedicine.

Cybersecurity tools for telemedicine providers
Devices connected with the telehealth network must offer visibility through different tools. The information should include movement, the device’s level of security, and data use. With the use of these tools, isolation of any at-risk device is easy.
Quick isolation of the contaminated device reduces the ability of cybercriminals to move across the network. This level of visibility is possible due to the use of several strategies and tools.
What are the various types of EHR integration?
Integrating EHR with telemedicine is nothing but building the bridge between these two tools so that they can fetch and share (data exchange) the clinical data of patients as per need.
There are mainly two types of methods for data exchange between EHR and telemedicine which are, bi-directional and unidirectional.
Let’s start with the bi-directional.
Which is the most common challenge that arises during EHR integration?
