Voice-enabled digital clinical assistant and intuitive telehealth platform will empower high-quality virtual care
DALLAS, TX & REDWOOD, CA.--April 30, 2020--Today, Suki, the voice-enabled digital clinical assistant, and QliqSOFT, a leader in patient engagement and virtual care solutions, announced a strategic partnership to empower providers to deliver high-quality, seamless telemedicine. Together, QliqSOFT’s intuitive telemedicine platform will enable providers to offer high-quality virtual visits, while Suki allows them to focus on patients and complete clinical documentation accurately and efficiently. As more and more care shifts to virtual settings during the Covid-19 pandemic, integrating these two solutions will optimize telemedicine workflows for both provider and patient.
QliqSOFT offers a secure, app-less solution for providers to conduct virtual visits from their own device, streamlining the process for clinicians to deliver telemedicine. Powered by artificial intelligence, Suki uses natural language processing and machine learning to create clinically accurate medical notes and quickly completes administrative tasks such as retrieving patient information from the electronic health record (EHR). This bundled offering enables providers and healthcare organizations to quickly deploy telehealth at scale while meeting clinical documentation standards for care coordination and reimbursement.
“While many providers and patients may be new to virtual visits, telemedicine is essential to safely delivering care during the Covid-19 pandemic. That’s why we’re partnering with QliqSOFT to enable providers to offer a seamless virtual patient experience while making their own workflows just as intuitive and efficient,” said Jallel Harrati, Vice President of Sales at Suki. “We evaluate potential partners on several strategic criteria, including alignment with our mission to serve doctors so they can deliver the best possible care, the strength of the technology, and the ability to provide a great user experience. QliqSOFT more than met our expectations and we are thrilled to welcome them into our partnership ecosystem.”
Suki is used by physicians in health systems, medical groups, and clinics throughout the country across dozens of specialties and in thousands of patient interactions per week. Across its user base, Suki has lowered physicians’ average time per note by 76 percent and provides detailed clinical documentation that has been shown to decrease claims denial rates by up to 19 percent. At a time when many providers are experiencing a drop in patient volume and revenue, capturing complete, accurate documentation is critical to ensuring appropriate reimbursement for virtual visits.
“As providers embrace virtual care, many for the first time, they’re looking for solutions that are designed with the overall experience in mind,” said Krishna Kurapati, Founder and CEO of QliqSOFT. “Our Virtual Visits harmonizing with Suki’s digital assistant for clinical documentation creates an all-in-one solution for efficient patient interactions, and reduces redundancy in provider workflows. That makes this partnership not only exciting but truly impactful to the clinicians we serve.”

When thinking about a healthcare emergency preparedness plan, how much does compliance matter in your disaster communications? If your organization is in the throes of a power outage from heavy storms or a cyber attack that’s left your network down, thoughts of compliance may not be top of mind.
Prior to the pandemic, telehealth visits ─ delivering patient-provider visits virtually ─ was an afterthought in the care continuum — ill-regarded and little-used beyond patients in rural areas who had few care choices. Virtual visits comprised less than 1% of all outpatient visits. Private insurers generally follow guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which allowed telehealth in only limited circumstances and paid at 30% below in-office reimbursement rates.
