Under the medical direction of Michael McPherson, MD, our team of skilled and capable providers bring their high-quality experience to our client facilities.

 

Our menu of telemedicine and web-interactive services include:

 

  • 24K Health QIPP Solutions: Texas QIPP rules provide for payment enhancements under Component Two: Workforce Development Metrics. Through this program, QIPP participating nursing facilities may use telemedicine services for scheduling hours beyond the CMS eight-hour in-person requirement. The 24K solution meets the Component requirements and improves your outcomes.

  • 24K Provider Consultation: Our network of providers is available for telemedicine consultations around the clock to client staff. We work with facility medical directors and attending physicians to customize how our services can best meet individual needs. Our team of providers can provide consultative recommendations, or we can assist with developing and determining treatment plans. We are as involved in assisting with care as your physicians ask.

  • Medical Director Services: Through our web-interactive services, we provide medical director services to facilities. This is extremely helpful to remote facilities who previously had struggled to retain skilled medical directors. Each of the physicians in this role are experienced and highly-skilled in CMS regulations and QAPI processes.

  • 24K Meaningful QAPI Processes with Action Plans which work! Our team of experts work with facility administrators, medical staff, directors of nursing and others to develop meaningful QAPI processes and QAA oversight which bring facilities into a process of continual process improvement.
