Teladoc Health Earns Multiple Telehealth Accreditations from ClearHealth Quality Institute

PURCHASE, NY, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Teladoc Health (NYSE: TDOC), the global leader in virtual care, today announced it has earned two accreditations through ClearHealth Quality Institute’s Telemedicine Accreditation Program (TAP). The company gained independent accreditation for both its Consumer-to-Provider services for acute care needs, as well as its Provider-to-Consumer services, which focus on the ongoing provider/patient relationship when treating specialty and chronic conditions, including mental health.
“Delivering high-quality clinical care is at the heart of Teladoc Health’s mission. It’s central to our commitment to lead by example and elevate virtual care standards for ourselves, our members, and for the industry,” said Jason Tibbels, MD, chief quality officer, Teladoc Health.To achieve CHQI accreditation for telemedicine, Teladoc Health completed a robust application process spanning both business and clinical operations. It demonstrated the company’s long-term commitment to deliver the highest caliber of care in the industry, as evidenced by Teladoc Health’s other market-leading initiatives such as establishing the first and only Patient Safety Organization (PSO) for virtual care and research into antibiotic stewardship with USC.  “As more consumers depend on virtual care, they seek assurances that it is quality care, particularly as not all telemedicine providers set quantifiable care metrics. Consumers, medical providers, employers, and insurers alike generally feel more comfortable and more confident relying on healthcare entities that have secured accreditation,” said Michael Gomes, CEO, CHQI. “By becoming a CHQI-accredited organization for telemedicine in two areas, Teladoc Health reaches a new standard of quality in the delivery of telemedicine in our country.”For more information, visit ClearHealth Quality Institute™ (CHQI)
