NEW YORK, June 19th – EY announced that Jason Gorevic, CEO of Teladoc Inc., the nation’s first and largest telehealth provider with 8 million members, received the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2014 Award in the health care category in New York. The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Gorevic was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event at the Marriott Marquis on Tuesday, June 17th.
“On behalf of Teladoc, I’m deeply honored to be named a winner of Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year,” said Jason Gorevic, CEO of Teladoc. “This prestigious recognition comes at an exciting time for Teladoc as it continues to expand and grow as a leader in health care. This award serves as a testament to Teladoc’s leadership, highest standards of quality care and commitment to providing convenient, low-cost access to care for patients.”
Teladoc provides patients with 24/7 access to quality health care via phone, online video and mobile app to receive treatment for non-emergency medical issues, such as allergies, bronchitis, pink eye and sinus problems. Teladoc’s physicians are board-certified and state-licensed with an average of 15 years’ experience, and complete more than 250,000 consults annually with a 95 percent patient satisfaction rate. Teladoc is the first and only telehealth company to be certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), demonstrating the organization’s commitment to quality health care.
