Healthcare operations have to find ways to meet the broad range of needs of their patients. Specialty services are a necessary part of many patients’ care but it can be costly for healthcare facilities to recruit and retain specialty providers. Noticing this, we realized there is a struggle for clinics and hospitals to do it alone and would benefit from outside support to deliver top-quality care.

Tele-pulmonary services from Beam Healthcare provide an extra layer of assistance for on-site respiratory therapists, nurses, and primary care physicians working in post-acute, clinic, or hospital settings.

Inpatient E-Consulting

Cost-effective pulmonary guidance for PCPs and hospitalist teams provides board-certified expertise to reassure staff and keep patient care moving. For inpatient eConsults, a physician can write an order, then our specialist can access the patient’s medical records and labs to give a note with their review and recommendations.

Procedure Interpretations

PFTs | Sleep Studies – Rapid Quality Interpretations
Let our remote team of Tele-Pulmonologists provide interpretation with a rapid turnaround time for procedures like pulmonary function tests and sleep studies. There is no high-cost investment required to get started. The pulmonary tele-specialist accesses these images/data, provide interpretations, and devises plans to aid in providing patient-centric care.

Tele-Procedures

Remote Pulmonary Procedure Interpretation

Simple | Timely | Accurate

Tele-procedures are an effective means of interpreting data obtained by inpatient and outpatient pulmonary procedures. Rapid interpretation will provide necessary results to supplement patient care and help guide treatment. Our board-certified pulmonologist will provide interpretation for the following studies.

Pulmonary Function Tests - PFTs

Facility-performed Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs) such as spirometry, lung volumes, DLCO, high altitude simulation test, 6 minute exercise test, and more are uploaded to a cloud-based system. Our board-certified Pulmonologists interpret the study and provide results to expedite patient care. As you confirm diagnosis, adjust care plans, help qualify your patients for pulmonary rehab or durable medical equipment, you can depend on accurate, clear, and detailed reports to ensure proper patient care without delay.

Sleep Study

Beam Healthcare’s board-certified sleep specialists provide high-quality and timely interpretation of procedures such as polysomnogram (PSG), titration study, split night study, and multiple sleep latency tests (MSLT) . Upload your facility-performed tests and we can take it from there. Whether assessing fatigue, determining a patient’s daytime sleepiness, restless leg, or other symptoms; having quick results will keep patient care on track and avoid delays in obtaining DME (durable medical equipment such as bipap/cpap).

Outpatient Clinic Consults

With outpatient clinic consults, patients visit their local clinic and participate in a tele-consult with our pulmonary provider in a familiar setting. The clinic’s ancillary staff assist so the patients can see and speak with the tele-pulmonologist on video. The pulmonary provider communicates with the patient and the primary care physician on care plans and follow-up visits if necessary.

Tele-Pulm +

When your inpatient team could use guidance for higher acuity patients. Tele-Respiratory Therapists assess patients, review labs, vitals, radiology images, and speak with the onsite providers. Tele-Pulmonologists can then efficiently review this information and the EMR to provide an Econsult or decide if a Teleconsult is necessary. (Examples: ILD, COPD, Asthma, ARDS)

Why You May Need Tele-Pulmonary Services

Keeping Patient Care Local

When care is local you reduce the burden on the patients. Patients have a quicker time getting appointments because they don’t have to rely on larger hospitals that are further away with higher volumes of people requesting appointments.

Reduced Financial Stress

Adding permanent consultants to your staff is an expense some facilities can’t afford or can only manage irregularly. Rural facilities might not have the budget to spend on hiring a specialist. Clinics also face the issue of irregular access to specialists which can increase patients’ wait times leading them to seek care elsewhere. Beam’s tele-pulmonary program is financially viable and scalable.

Increased Preparedness
Tele-pulmonary services are a cost-effective way to have proper care on hand when we see an increase in viral and bacterial infections. When the clinics see environmental factors causing an increased number of patients they can easily work with Beam to scale the service to meet growing demand.
