Microsoft Teams, Epic Integrate to Power EHR-Connected Virtual Visits
Microsoft Teams has joined Epic’s App Orchard marketplace to power telehealth workflows within a provider’s organizations through its Microsoft Teams EHR connector. The new EHR integration with Epic is a response to the global pandemic as many healthcare organizations have ramped up their telehealth offerings leveraging Microsoft Teams.
Epic App Orchard Integration Features
Having Microsoft Teams available via App Orchard will allow clinicians and patients to launch a virtual patient visit or consult with another provider in Teams directly from their EHR system. The communication and collaboration platform of Teams makes it easy for clinicians to cut through the clutter of traditionally fragmented systems so they can spend time providing the best possible care. Built on the Microsoft 365 cloud, Microsoft Teams enables simple, secure collaboration and communication with chat, video, voice, and healthcare tools in a single hub that supports compliance with HIPAA, HITECH certification, and more.
