PlushCare, an online urgent-care company, has introduced ‘’Lemur,’’ what the firm calls the “first ever electronic medical record (EMR) system for the telehealth industry.”

The company says that Lemur requires fewer clicks to complete tasks than older EMR systems, which simplifies physicians’ workflow and lets them spend more time with patients. James Wantuck, M.D., the company’s chief medical officer and a co-founder, told Healthcare Dive that the time spent on the platform was only half that of a third-party EMR  systems telemedicine physicians used previously.

Dr. Wantuck told Healthcare Dive that physicians designed Lemur. With it, physicians can “establish this virtual relationship with someone where you’re not typing into a computer, there’s nothing between you and the patient.’’

The news service said that PlushCare currently operates in 16 states and plans to expand particularly in rural areas where access to care has been increasingly difficult because of the wave of rural hospitals being closed.
