G-Health Enterprises has teamed up with its electronic health record MEDENT, to make face-to-face meetings between its members and patient health navigators (PHNs) easier. Utilizing a telehealth system through MEDENT, GBUAHN members can schedule a time to meet with their patient health navigators digitally. Through the MEDENT patient portal, video-visits are scheduled to accommodate a smart phone or laptop (or desktop) computer. Once the meeting time is set up, the member and patient health navigator will be able to engage in a face to face interaction from remote locations.
“Having this connection through MEDENT directly to our GBUAHN members is another fantastic way G-Health is tearing down barriers to care created by the social determinants of health,” said Raul Vazquez, M.D., chief executive officer of G- Health Enterprises. “Now, members have the power right in their hands to schedule face-to-face contacts with their PHNs, and they won’t have to deal with barriers such as finding transportation and child care.”
Through the use of MEDENT telehealth capabilities and other innovative strategies, G-Health Enterprises will be able to address the social determinants of health and clinical needs with a 360-degree approach.
