PlushCare, a direct-to-consumer online urgent care provider, today announced the launch of Lemur, a EMR platform specifically for the telehealth industry. Lemur – the cloud-based and HIPAA compliant EMR platform – allows PlushCare doctors to diagnose, treat, prescribe and provide ongoing treatment throughout the course of a medical issue directly from the platform itself.
Lemur requires the fewest clicks in the industry to complete tasks such as writing a note, sending a prescription (eRx), ordering labs with full price transparency and reviewing lab results. PlushCare has collaborated with Surescripts, Eligible, and Elsevier, among others, whose capabilities are integrated into Lemur, further simplifying physicians’ tasks and affording them more time to focus on the patient directly.
Lemur, rolled out to all of PlushCare’s 50 active physicians, furthers the company’s overhaul of the urgent care model, and not only connects patients with same-day medical care from world-class doctors through mobile and desktop devices, but also elevates the patient experience and overall satisfaction. PlushCare physicians benefit from a streamlined workflow and patients receive an improved experience where they’re treated as individuals rather than faceless numbers or appointment timeslots.
PlushCare currently utilizes 50 active physicians and has over a hundred physician applicants on their waitlist. The company conducts thousands of patient encounters each month in the state of California alone. California is one of the 16 states PlushCare currently operates in and the company has plans for additional state rollouts in the near future.
“PlushCare’s Lemur takes the capabilities of virtual health to the next level and makes it a common sense health care option for physicians and consumers alike,” said Katelyn Gleason, CEO and Co-Founder of Eligible. “In addition to an easy to use interface and practical functionality, integrations from Eligible for real time eligibility verification and seamless claim submissions make Lemur the gold standard EMR for healthcare.”
