4 min read

People are concerned about their health like never before. 

People do not prefer to visit hospitals amid coronavirus outbreak. 

Here lies the business opportunity of “Telehealth for Dietitians”! 

This blog is a great help to seize this business opportunity. 

What is a telehealth dietitian service? 

A telehealth dietitian service is nothing but the remote delivery of dietitian services using telecommunication technologies such as voice calls and video calls.  

In order to provide telehealth dietitian services, the dietitian and his customer or patient both need to have important telehealth resources such as an uninterrupted internet connection, telehealth tool, app or software, and mobile or computer devices such as a tablet, smartphone, computer or laptop.  

Why should you not use third-party free video calling tools to provide online dietitian services? 

You must have a question that why I should develop or deploy a dedicated telehealth dietitian tool when there are many third-party free video calling apps available. The following are the top reasons for simply avoiding free video calling tools. 

Dedicated Telehealth Dietitian Apps/Tools Third-Party Free Video Calling Tools/Apps
Usability It is equipped with dedicated features that enable dietitians to provide in-house experience.  It is a general-purpose app. Thus, it lacks dedicated features for dietitians.  
Security All telehealth dietitian apps/tools are HIPAA/PHIPA compliant. Not all free video calling apps are HIPAA/PHIPA compliant.
Workflows Such apps automate operations and streamline workflows. The only use of such apps is calling! 
Customer/Patient Experience It provides remarkable user experience as it is designed dedicatedly for patients or users looking for online dietitian services.  Patients or users looking for online dietitian services find it difficult to have a nice user experience from a general-purpose calling app.
Cost Such apps cost you a lot. But it lets you derive many financial benefits in terms of productivity, nice user experience and reduced errors. These apps are free. However, using such unsecured apps for healthcare practice can make you liable for the hefty fine from the government.
