Why Telehealth?

With the launch of our on-demand telehealth service, InteractiveMD, we thought it would be appropriate to share a little bit about what we offer and how it can benefit you.

Telehealth is a method of delivering health care that utilizes advanced technology to improve the accessibility, efficiency and quality of care received. Though it has existed for some time in the form of phone consultations, new advances in technology, coupled with the needs of an increasingly strained medical community, have spurred an increase in demand for the development and availability of low-cost, high-tech medical consultation.
That's where InteractiveMD, a revolutionary telehealth service that provides patients with on-demand, interactive access to board certified doctors, comes into the picture. The goal of the service is to improve the accessibility and efficiency of health care by simulating in-person consultations via phone or email.
The network is driven by a HIPAA compliant proprietary system, and it includes the integration of electronic health records, enabling doctors to effectively diagnose and treat patients for a wide range of common conditions regardless of either party’s location.
Connecting patients with doctors through phone or email allows us to break through the two greatest barriers to health care: cost and access. We now have the ability to connect you with the care you need, whenever you need it. Seeing a doctor has never been easier, and it’s never been more affordable!
