MediSprout reaches important milestone.
Upstart telehealth platform evolves into a hybrid practice management solution.
Valhalla, New York – With the push of its latest software update, MediSprout became a full-scale hybrid practice management solution, targeting small and startup behavioral and mental health practices. In the new HIPAA-compliant MediSprout platform, providers now have technology that supports hundreds of practice-wide functions such as patient scheduling and intake for video or in-person visits, automated admin and nonclinical tasks, secure provider notetaking and storage, and features that set a new tone for practice management and patient-first care.
While MediSprout got its initial burst of speed as a telehealth solution that helped hundreds of thousands of people during the COVID-19 pandemic, it was never intended to be only a virtual care tool.
“I had a bigger vision,” said MediSprout founder and CEO, Samant Virk, MD. “It came from my frustration with practice management technology that actually got in the way of care.”
Virk left his practice after 15 years and set his sights on a technology solution that is more in line with the needs of providers and patients today. With the help of MediSprout’s international design and development team, not to mention input from more than 1000 US-based therapists, Virk’s vision is coming into focus.
“This update represents our biggest step toward a transformational practice management experience that removes the friction and pushes healthcare forward,” said Virk.
Along with a consolidated set of practice tools for providers, MediSprout offers patients an intuitive app that simplifies access to care, addressing another healthcare challenge.
“We have to give patients better healthcare tools and a bigger role in their care,” said Virk. “That’s the way to better patient engagement and better care outcomes.
