It's been another busy month at Coviu, from topical webinars, exciting new product updates and amazing customer success stories...there is a lot to dive into.
Throughout our planning, the news of permanent telehealth has remained top of mind as we continue to develop and innovate for a brighter future in healthcare. We are excited to continue working hard towards a more digitally enabled future and we are thrilled to bring you along on the journey.
Webinar On-Demand: Telehealth Reimbursements Part 1
We were so lucky to be joined by the amazing Margaret Faux from Synapse Medical who delivered a webinar on telehealth reimbursements. This informative session provided so much knowledge on what the recent MBS items mean, Medicare's legal foundations, bulk billing, record keeping requirements and information surrounding the 80/20 and 30/20 rules!

Coviu Product Updates
Send Notifications From the Waiting Area
Providers can now send notifications to a filtered list of specific patients or clients i.e. those who are waiting to be seen. Providers then have the ability to bulk send a notification to those that are in the filtered list.
In addition, when a provider messages a patient or client from the waiting area notification system their message history and chat log can now be viewed. This will show who sent the message and when the message was sent.
Revamped Reporting Capabilities
Now, when you go to the ‘reports’ tab you are able to set up your reporting fields and generate all the reports Coviu has to offer.
We have also created the ability to see a list of all the most recent reports (up to 24 hours), located under the new history page. When downloading reports you’ll now see report generation process information i.e. % of completion.
If providers decide to not download the report immediately but would prefer to email it, a link will now be sent to their inbox with a link to download when the report is ready.
This new feature is available on our Premium plan. To upgrade, click here to learn how to change your plan within your account.
Coviu Welcome Dashboard and Call Interface
Some big enhancements are coming soon to Coviu. This includes a new Coviu Welcome Dashboard and a revamp of the Call Interface!
The new Welcome Dashboard will make it easier for you to get started, providing you with access to all your most-used tools in one place. In addition, the Call Interface will become more streamlined, making it easier to navigate during your consultations.
More details will be provided in the coming weeks, but for now, here is a little sneak peek...
