Tom asked if the service is for all people or just transplant patients. RemoTraC is for Transplant patients. Doxy.me is for all people.
Alyssa Roman

awesome Sam :)
Dr. Megan Kamath
01:37:31
Hi Ken, You asked how confident are you with the Allomap blood draw and testing for organ Rejection?
Dr. Megan Kamath
01:38:38
We have been using the Allomap test at UCLA for several years and it is has been well validated in the literature as well
Dr. Megan Kamath
01:39:27
As always, make sure you speak to your physician and care provider team about any concerns that you have as we always look at each patient individually
Dr. Megan Kamath
01:39:41
Thanks for the question!
Linda Laub
01:40:22
How does the hospital bill for tele visits? What is the average charge/ copay to patient?
Sam(Sj) Dey
01:41:59
As a heart recipient/patient, I love it that I can get the Allomap test, instead of being limited to only having heart catherization procedures at the hospital. (I still have in-person caths during my annual visit to University of Maryland Medical Center)
Elizabeth Gagliardi
01:42:29
had the same problem with drs using different platforms
Alyssa Roman
01:43:43
hi i am a pre heart txp coordinator from Pittsburgh at AGH (Allegheny Health Network). we use Epic for our EMR and we only have the option to use the video chat throught Epic and pt's have to have iphone or android
Alyssa Roman
01:43:57
we use Zoom for txp evaluations when needed
Sam(Sj) Dey
01:45:39
feedback to poll question2 as a patient: Sometimes coordinating between CareDx & local blood draw agencies can be challenging to coordinate.
Dr. Megan Kamath
01:47:56
Hi Alex,
Dr. Megan Kamath
01:48:00
You asked How do you accommodate those patients who have limited English speaking capabilities?
Sam(Sj) Dey
01:48:20
virtual telemedicine visits could also facilitate transplant patients to interact with their transplant doctors, instead of being seen by NPs & PAs during the in person visits.
Dr. Megan Kamath
01:49:13
We are fortunate at UCLA to have the ability to have the ability to have telephonic interpretation services available as well as live interpretation services available
Sam(Sj) Dey
01:50:19
Q. Does doxy.me protect the providers & patients against ugly dusruptions/violations like 'zoom-bombing'?
Sherene
01:51:00
I believe we'd see an increase in post transplant follow up compliance with the transplant center. Kidney transplant patients have a tendency to fall off the grid after so many years, and it's difficult to get them into the clinic. I've already seen an uptick in compliance since instituting telehealth.
Alyssa Roman
01:51:59
our PA's our only inpt and we only have 1 NP and she doesn't see post txp so in person visit or televisit you always meet with your coordinator and an MD
Sam(Sj) Dey
01:52:48
Q: 'telemedicine' seems a bit dated, is there a better term like 'VirtualMedicine' or 'RemoteMed', "VirtMed'..etc?
Alyssa Roman
01:52:48
i feel when they do not have testing needed and it is just labs/clinic - outpt labs can be done prior at local lab and tele visits work well for those visits.

Maggie
01:54:26
why is it important to use a HIPAA compliant service like doxy.me ?
Elizabeth Gagliardi
01:54:46
will care do continue doing labs at home after Covid 19
Sam(Sj) Dey
01:56:47
as a patient, co-payments shoukd be lower...less overheads etc
Sherene
01:58:03
I think it would help to have transparency on the clinic's side of why their fee schedule has the equivalent cost for virtual visit vs in person.
Sam(Sj) Dey
01:58:03
Q. will Medicare & Medicaid programs all telemedicine costs?
Dr. Shiang-Cheng Kung
01:58:30
if anything the center had to take on more staf
Sasha King
