Partner with Calcium
In addition to providing a more comprehensive EHR resource for both patients and the virtual medical professional, the Calcium platform can also drive more users to your telemedicine service.
With its ability to lower healthcare costs, telemedicine is the popular new channel for many health plans, providers and payers. This has produced additional challenges on both the staffing and user acquisition side.
First, there’s the challenge of persuading individuals to first use the telemedicine option before going to the clinic or emergency room. Along with this challenge is the need to increase your user base among your target audience.
The second challenge comes when the patient does use your telemedicine service. If you’re lucky, you may have access to some of the EMR data from the patient. But that information is often incomplete. And as you interview the patient, you may not have all of their current vitals available. So your diagnosis is limited.
Solving these two challenges of generating more telemedicine usage and providing more thorough diagnoses are important ingredients in ensuring your telemedicine service’s long-term success.
Calcium for telemedicine
Calcium provides a platform that can improve your telemedicine service with more health records and real-time data for participating patients — as well as help generate more users for your service.
Challenge: While growing in adoption, many individuals still instinctively go directly to the hospital or ER whenever they’re not feeling well.
Solution: Individuals can quickly connect with a participating telemedicine service with a quick click on their phone or web app. They also receive reminders to first use telemedicine before scheduling an urgent care appointment.
The Calcium platform encourages daily usage through a combination of…
- Personalized health management programs
- Data integration with personal medical and fitness devices, and
- Gamification strategies designed to increase continuous and routine use
By partnering with Calcium, we can drive more of your existing patients to your service. We can also drive new customers in your target area to increase your user base.
Challenge: As you work online with a telemedicine patient, you find that the EMR data from your network is incomplete and your screening process could improve with more data.
Solution:Calcium allows users to share their comprehensive EHR file with you, including data from their home medical devices and current health management programs, as well as data from fitness and wellness apps.
By providing our app to your current users, especially those managing a chronic condition, you will have actual monitoring data from their care program and related devices. You can then use your analytics platform to provide a more precise diagnosis.
But our platform’s built-in monitoring system will also alert users if there are spikes in their vitals or tracked data – and recommend a quick call to a telemedicine service.

The next stage of population health for telemedicine
Technology and the population health movement has fueled many improvements and savings for our healthcare industry. But the full promise of improved public health outcomes has not yet been fulfilled.
There have been advances, along with a significant investment by healthcare providers throughout the healthcare ecosystem.
The reason is that many of the traditional behavior modification strategies we’ve relied on have proven less than effective in our fast-evolving digital world. The channels are there to engage the bulk of your population more effectively. What has been missing is a platform that not only leverages leading-edge technology and analytics, but also leverages behavior strategies aligned with today’s digital health environment.
