Integrated telemedicine solution provides easy, quick access to care while reducing costs to payers and members
INDIANAPOLIS (MAY 3, 2016) – Healthx, Inc., the leader in cloud-based digital engagement solutions for healthcare payers and other stakeholders, and Teladoc, Inc. (NYSE: TDOC), the nation’s leading provider of telehealth services, announced a partnership to offer Teladoc’s services on the Healthx member engagement platform. Teladoc’s telehealth services are pre-integrated to the Healthx platform, and provide members with 24/7 online access to state-licensed, board-certified physicians for on-demand remote care via mobile devices, secure online video and phone.
In situations when a member of a health plan or third party administrator (TPA) doesn’t have access to their family physician for common, non-emergency conditions, an urgent care or emergency room visit may be the only option, which is costly and time-consuming. Healthx makes Teladoc’s telehealth services accessible to members when, where and however they want. Services are available from virtually anywhere via the Healthx member portal, mobile devices, secure video and phone to diagnose and treat many common ailments. This means helping people resolve their issues quickly, easily and affordably.
“Telemedicine is one of the top health care trends for 2016,” said Sean Downs, Healthx CEO. “With health care’s focus on improved quality and lower costs, Teladoc, the industry leader, brings unmatched experience and success in providing quality telehealth services with meaningful ROI’s.” Downs added, “This is exciting for our customers, as health plans and TPAs that purchase this solution can provide access to telehealth services under their own brand, making them more competitive and improving member satisfaction.”
“This is a great relationship for Teladoc,” said Jason Gorevic, Teladoc chief executive officer. “The sophistication of our technology and scalability of our platform will undoubtedly support Healthx’s member engagement goals, while delivering a substantial ROI to its customer base. Healthx’s decision to integrate Teladoc’s platform and engagement strategies will give its members national access to convenient, high quality health care at a much lower cost than traditional clinical encounters.”
