From FierceHealthCare July 2021 — Teladoc Health is partnering with Microsoft to integrate telehealth into the Teams app for hospitals and health systems.


he combination of communications, collaboration and workflows in Microsoft Teams with Teladoc Health’s virtual care delivery technology will simplify the way care providers work by streamlining the technology and administrative processes associated with providing virtual care, according to the companies.

“We will deliver what hospitals and health systems want: integrated, enterprise solutions that make the full breadth of virtual care available in their daily workflows,” said Joseph DeVivo, president of hospitals and health systems at Teladoc Health, in a statement. “Our collaboration will deliver a more seamless, unified experience for clinicians and patients that makes healthcare better, leveraging leading data, artificial intelligence and machine learning expertise from both companies.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many hospitals and health systems adopted Microsoft Teams to connect clinicians and patients on video. Clinicians already have the ability to securely access clinical data included within their electronic health record system using Teladoc Health’s Solo platform and will be able to do so without having to leave the Teams app, according to Teladoc.
