Did You Know Teledentistry Can Help Your Practice Save An Average Of $67 Per Patient?
See How Dr. McLelland is saving money in his practice with telehealth consultations!
Telehealth is efficient and cost-effective when used for the preoperative assessment of patients. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reported in a follow-up study that 95.9% of patients were given accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. It also found that there was an individual saving per patient of $67 when using telehealth over traditional in-person visits. Practices can choose to pass some of these savings on to patients as an incentive to get them to get their dental work done.
What If You Are Not Sure If Teledentistry Is Right For You?
You are not alone. We have spoken with many doctors and here are the most common things they worry about:
- One more thing to learn
- Another monthly expense
- Not the same as an in-person experience
- Technology is sensitive and breaks down
- Can’t do a physical exam, touch and feel the patient
- May not have an X-Ray at the time of the consult
- Patients can’t navigate the app
- Hardware to manage and support
- Staff will resist or sabotage the effort
- A strain on call center staff
These are all valid and understandable objections. This is an invitation to keep an open mind and see how this simple technology could help your practice. You may be one of those whose PPP, SBA, or EIDL loans were not approved. You may be in the 2% of practices that will close their doors this year unless you do something different. This is where Teledentistry can serve as a strategic way to be more productive with barely any overhead. Patients love to have a Teledentistry option as it helps them save time and allows them to stay in touch with their dental professionals from the comfort of their own homes.
How Can A Dental Practice Make Money With Teledentistry?
Insurance billing involves submitting an appropriate evaluation code along with the applicable telehealth code. Report your full fees on the claim. Jet Virtual Consults provides an automated teledentistry consultation receipt as a PDF file that you can use as proof of service to help expedite the payment.
Many insurance plans are now covering virtual consultations. Some states also allow providers to get paid for offering telehealth services under Medicare/Medicaid. You may read more about it on this fact sheet from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

What Are The Top Seven Most Essential Teledentistry Tools To Meet Patients’ Expectations?
For a virtual consultation to qualify as a synchronous Telehealth visit, it needs to have both video and audio transmission between the provider and the patient. A phone call or audio-only call will not count as a synchronous Telehealth encounter. The doctor will not be able to prescribe medication to a new patient if that is the only mode of communication with them. Teledentistry applications offer many features that enable medical providers to deliver Teledentistry services to their patients. Here are the top seven tools that are absolutely essential for medical practices to meet patients’ expectations in today’s world:
For an app to be HIPAA compliant, the app must provide end-to-end security for synchronous and asynchronous communication via video, chat, and transmission of ePHI with 256-bit AES encryption. This app must enforce HIPAA compliance by default for all services and communications. This guarantees the communication between provider and patient is private at all times and free from unauthorized access by third parties.
It serves as a convenient way for patients and practices to communicate in a safe and secure manner. The majority of mobile phone users prefer using text messaging over email. A study by Pew Research Center has found that 97% of mobile phone users engage via text messaging on a daily basis. Text messaging also has a higher engagement rate than email. It supersedes email use by 15%. When a Telehealth app offers private chat, It saves the practice money from having to use a third-party texting service. These services can sometimes be confusing for patients to engage with. When secure chat is part of a telehealth app, staff and patients don’t have to look up a phone number to send a message because communication happens all within the app.
Telehealth technology that supports mobile devices has a higher engagement rate than those using a mobile-friendly website. Telehealth apps are convenient and make it easy for patients and providers to communicate at any time from anywhere. Patients are more likely to be next to their phones than their desktops or laptops at any given time. If patients forget their teledentistry appointments, they can use their smartphones to connect from where they are. This is not the case for a desktop. Desktop use is diminishing in comparison to mobile year after year. 63% of web traffic in the US comes from mobile devices. Research by Smart Insights shows that people are spending on average 89% of their mobile time on apps. This is equivalent to 4.5 hours per user per day.
Secure File Transfers and E-Signatures
Jet Virtual Consults allows patients to securely submit their demographics information, identification cards, radiographs, images, insurance cards, intake forms, signatures, and all within its own proprietary workflow. All this without the need for extra software or hardware. And best of all without paying extra. It is time to put behind the need to email forms back and forth or scan forms into your practice management system. This can be confusing and frustrating to patients and staff. It also can put you at risk if you are not properly using a HIPAA compliant email system to securely transmit ePHI over email. Jet Virtual Consults delivers your patient files in a secure cloud folder as PDF files where your staff can comfortably upload them to your practice system.
Jet Virtual Consults comes with an automated workflow to help you streamline your appointment reminder process. This is one of the most important tools that help practices remind their patients about their appointments without having to use staff time to make calls. Patients whose appointments are scheduled through the app will get an automatic appointment reminder via text message and voice call one day and one hour prior to their appointments. Most practices pay extra to send appointment reminders. Jet Virtual Consults includes this powerful tool right out of the box.
Increase your practice reviews with our practice review module. Our integrated process is helping practices increase their reviews by up to 400%. Google Places reviews are essential for practices to gain new patients via Google search. Having consistent relevant and positive reviews on Google Places helps to get referrals from Google. When people search for your specific services, only the most relevant results show first. It is imperative that practice gets reviews often. Jet Virtual Consults makes it super easy for patients to leave you a review via Google Places. If the review is not favorable, the app allows patients to send you their feedback directly for you to have a chance to deal with their grievance and hence avoid having to deal with the fallout of a negative review online.
Manage Your Virtual Waiting Room
This module goes beyond virtual and it brings the power of managing your waiting room for in-person patients. The days of cramming people in a waiting room are over. People feel more comfortable when giving the option to wait in their cars and only come to the office when the time to see their provider. Jet Virtual Consults offers a curbside check-in tool. It comes with a geolocation check that only allows patients to check-in within a one-mile radius of a medical office. This helps practices manage their patient’s queues in a more strategic way. No need to let a late patient hold up the line for those who are already on site.
Why Is Telehealth Essential To The Future Success Of A Medical Practice?
- Decreased in-person visits
- Less PPE consumed
- More consults in less time
- Less time cleaning and disinfecting in between patients
Telehealth increases productivity because it allows doctors to see more patients in less time. It does not require PPE or disinfecting rooms in between patients. Doctors don’t have to give up their rooms to see patients. They have the option to batch their virtual consults during blocks of time outside of surgical time. They can limit their use of their rooms exclusively for procedures. Telehealth is safe for patients, doctors, and staff. It helps medical offices expand their geographical reach and increase their patient base. Doctors and patients when in a safe location don’t have to wear masks when on a virtual consult.
