Telehealth quickly became a standard for access to healthcare during the pandemic as COVID-19 spread, forcing clinics to shutter their doors. While many offices were able to reopen after they established additional safeguards, a rapidly growing number of patients, as well as providers, continue to benefit from the convenience and added safety provided by virtual care, especially for routine visits.
Vola has developed a comprehensive product suite that fills a void not addressed by many healthcare IT providers. “At Vola, we account for the needs of both the patients and healthcare providers. Our goal is to provide a seamless, integrated flow of data between patients, providers, and ancillary services,” says Dr. Mathis.
Vola Connected Health is a privately held company. Vola’s mission is to support the rapidly growing digital transformation of the healthcare industry. We do this by equipping medical offices and telehealth providers with customizable and affordable technology. One of our key differentiators is our ability to connect laboratory tests into the workflow of telehealth services. Additionally, we have a dedicated SaaS product line to support laboratories and specialty healthcare organizations.
