In general, a site needs telemedicine enabled hardware/software and a secure, HIPAA compliant network to provider services. Over time, telemedicine solutions have become quite affordable. Please call WT directly at 404-478-3017 if you have any questions about your facility.
If you are a current client, please refer to the “Make an Appointment” tab on our website. If you are a new client, your current OB/GYN must make a referral to Women’s Telehealth before you can make an appointment.
No. Depending on the location, the OB provider, local volume, and the need for a local sonographer to be available to scan the baby, each Women’s Telehealth site is different in terms of availability. Check with your local OB provider for the Women’s Telehealth schedule for their site.
This depends on which lab studies are drawn and how urgent the provider’s request is to get the results. Generally, lab results are available within 10 business days after the lab receives the specimen.
Typically, we know the clinical reasons for the referral to Women’s Telehealth. However, once the patient receives an ultrasound and a consult, there may be new clinical findings. Women’s Telehealth will make every effort to obtain all authorizations needed for each visit. Multiple ultrasound studies are often completed on the same visit to examine various parts of the maternal and fetal anatomy, saving the patient time in needing to return. Some diagnoses require ongoing MFM monitoring.
No. Obstetric care provided by the obstetrician is billed under a global fee that encompasses all antenatal, delivery and post-partum care. Women’s Telehealth bills under a fee for service or “per visit” system as each patient visit is completed. Generally, your pregnancy is managed by your referring obstetrician, and Women’s Telehealth is a consultant that works with the obstetrician. Being a telehealth provider, Women’s Telehealth does not do deliveries.
We partner with OB/GYN practices to provide ultrasound procedures as well as high risk, Maternal Fetal Medicine care within regular OB/GYN offices for the convenience of the patient. We are a separate specialty practice, with separate physicians, staff, billing and contact information. OB/GYN partner practices must provide a patient referral before a patient can be seen by Women’s Telehealth.
