Telehealth for organizations

Health care expenses, premiums and out-of-pocket costs are putting the crunch on health plans, employers, unions and patients alike. 73% of Americans have difficulty receiving timely medical care. That is where our Telehealth service helps by both lower costs and increasing the health of members.

How Telehealth Works

Telehealth was developed to serve a growing number of people in need of medical services but unable to access care at the appropriate level. Every day, thousands of patients are deferring treatment they need because they do not have convenient access to care. Thousands more seek care at the ER, the doctor’s office or an urgent care clinic that could have been provided much more quickly, conveniently, safely and cost-effectively over the phone or online. Telehealth is a fast-growing, multi-billion dollar marketplace today improving consumer healthcare around the globe. The American Medical Association has reported that as many as 70% of all doctor visits are for information only or for matters that can be handled over the phone. Data shows that over 36 million Americans have been treated through Telehealth consultations.

Telehealth Success Stories

William

After giving them a call, I was surprised when a doctor called me back in 20 minutes. Not only did he send in a prescription for an antibiotic but he spent about 15 minutes answering questions I had about other minor aches and pains I had. I was very surprised how professional the whole process was and will use this service again and again.

I was on a weekend vacation with my wife and felt I was getting sick. While in the airport, I called Teladoc. The doctor called me back in less than 15 minutes. She asked me questions about my symptoms and after about 5 minutes determined I had a sinus infection and called in a prescription. Several hours later, when my plane landed, I stopped by the pharmacy and picked it up. There is no way I could have seen a doctor that day yet I was on my medication before dinner. I was very impressed.

My daughter and son-in-law left the kids with my husband and I for the weekend. They told us that if any of the kids got sick to call Teladoc. Sure enough, my granddaughter woke up late Sunday night with a bad earache. I told my husband I was taking her to the emergency room and he told me to try Teladoc first. I wasn’t that comfortable with that idea but I called. A doctor called us back in 5 minutes, calmed me down and prescribed some ear drops that we were able to get at an all-night pharmacy. It didn’t cost a penny to talk to the doctor.

We went onto our Teladoc account and requested a video consult and received a link and an appointment time. At 2pm sharp we went onto that link and we were talking directly to the doctor through our computer. She gave us a diagnosis and some valuable advice along with a prescription. This is a “must have” benefit that every family should have, especially since it takes so much time and money to see a doctor today.
