CloudVisit™ is packed with features, but the concise doctor portal centralizes availability, appointment confirmations, video session recording, and treatment notes. Patients are even billed automatically based on doctor-determined fees. Chromebook offers built-in Wi-Fi, more than 4 hours of battery life, and a 20 second boot-up. Doctors can realistically treat a full day's worth of patients remotely. "There's no extra work for the office manager," explains Gilbert.

By scheduling new patient consults, routine follow-ups, or patient monitoring online doctors can shorten office hours and potentially reduce staffing.
