Why Orbit University Matters to You

Telehealth is a rapidly growing industry.  According to the American Medical Association, insurance claims relating to telehealthcare rocketed up 53 percent just from 2016 to 2017, and the field has only continued to grow.  Numerous studies have shown that patients walk away just as satisfied, if not more so, when treated using telehealth technology.  With a proper telehealth service provider, you can offer your patients targeted, expert services, geared toward their specific needs, without worrying about finding a specialist at your location.  When done right, telemedicine is efficient, effective, and economical.  If you are a healthcare provider, you can be sure that telehealth will soon become a part of your practice, if it isn’t already.

Orbit University employs an educated, qualified, and talented team of seasoned professionals respected by their peers across the country.  Our teaching team has a wealth of knowledge and experience, with an established background of training medical staff at facilities all over the U.S.  Our team regularly presents at medical conferences and continuing education courses, and they have a deep understanding of both the medical field generally and the telehealth industry specifically.  We have already established numerous telemental health programs across the nation, so we know what to expect and how to get things done.  We pride ourselves on being at the cutting edge of the healthcare profession.

The Orbit University Essentials of Telehealth Series

Through Orbit University, we offer four core courses covering the Essentials of Telehealth.  The four-course Essentials of Telehealth Series includes the following:

  • Launching Your Telehealth Clinic. Our first Essentials course covers the basics of telehealth, including the advantages of telehealth, the types of services available, and where telehealth fits into your practice.  The program explains how to establish and maintain an effective team, the roles of each employee, and strategies for effective communication.  We also address how to respond to patient refusals or noncompliance.
  • Clinical Excellence in Telehealth. Our Clinical Excellence course explores how to make every telehealth session valuable and enjoyable for your patients.  We cover professional etiquette in a telehealth setting, how to establish rapport with patients over virtual communication, and common mistakes to avoid or correct in telehealth meetings.  Our Clinical Excellence course also covers how to conduct a quality mental health examination remotely, conducting AIMS tests virtually, and how to handle emergency situations.
  • Legal & Regulatory Compliance. Healthcare providers are rightly concerned about legal compliance, especially when considering a partnership with telehealth professionals across state lines.  Our Compliance course details telehealth policy, including licensing requirements and federal rules and regulations.  We cover controlled substances regulation, cybersecurity, HIPAA, and issues relating to patient consent.  More in-depth HIPAA and cybersecurity courses are available as well.
  • Office & Tech Requirements. With new technology, inevitably, comes new headaches.  Thankfully, our Office & Tech Requirements course will teach your office how to anticipate, alleviate, and correct any tech challenges that may arise.  We walk staff through setting up an office for telehealth services, what technology is necessary or recommended, and how to integrate telehealth into existing systems.

As an added bonus, the Essentials package includes our Pearls for Supervisors course that teaches supervisors how to lay the foundation for and effectively maintain a quality telehealth program.  Our Pearls course instructs supervisors on how to draft and implement appropriate policies, ensure staff are properly engaged, as well as anticipate and address any challenges that arise.

On top of the Essentials, we highly recommend the Inclusion & Diversity in Telehealth course.  The Diversity course explores sociocultural factors that can affect a telehealth encounter, including language differences and sensitive identity topics that may arise.  We provide social sensitivity training and work toward competency concerning ethnic and cultural matters.  Our Diversity course also covers ADA concerns.
