Chicago, Ill., and Waycross, Ga. – April 24, 2017, Chicago iLIL< Waycross, GA – Salus Telehealth, Inc., a market leader and trusted advisor within the telehealth industry, announces the company’s VideoMedicine mobile platform has launched Quick Care, a new service offering on-demand consultations with U.S. board-certified primary care providers. Available 24 hours a day, Quick Care provides patients with the option to request and begin a consultation with a provider within a short 30-minute timeframe. The service was developed for VideoMedicine users who want immediate access to a healthcare provider for a minor illness or injury and serves as a quick, hassle-free alternative to an in-person visit to an urgent care facility.
To use the service, patients can simply log into the VideoMedicine app and click the Quick Care banner from their personal dashboard. After the patient provides a brief description of their symptoms, Quick Care alerts all available providers of the request for care. Once a provider accepts the request, the patient is notified and the video call can begin. Upon the completion of the Quick Care visit, the patient is given the option to add the provider to their personal network for easy reference if a follow-up appointment is desired or for any future appointments.
“At Salus we strive to provide quality, consistent healthcare services in the most accessible and convenient way possible,” says Paula Guy, CEO of Salus Telehealth. “We recognized the need among VideoMedicine users to have access to an on-demand service that offered an immediate consultation, and developed Quick Care as a result. There are times when schedules are tight, or a diagnosis simply can’t wait. This service allows patients to address a minor condition and receive a diagnosis in the same amount of time it would take them to find their car keys and begin driving to a doctor’s office.”
Below is a list of the clinical services and symptoms that can be treated through Quick Care:
- Allergy symptoms
- Bronchitis & coughs
- Earaches & ear infections
- Flu-like symptoms
