Urgent Care

Reduce ED overcrowding, increase access and patient acquisition with a direct to patient urgent care telehealth program.

Delays Push Patients to the Emergency Department

The time to schedule an appointment has jumped 30% since 2014 as result of provider shortages, aging generations and population growth. For urgent care needs, many patients visit the Emergency Department, adding strain to an already overcrowded system.

In 2016, more than one million consumers opted to use telemedicine from the location of their choice, like a telehealth clinic, instead of traveling far see their doctor in person. But to be truly effective, reduce costs and maintain continuity, health systems must integrate telehealth into their urgent care programs.

Virtual Urgent Care is an Effective Part of System-Wide Telehealth

Embracing telehealth to deliver urgent care can be effective when integrated into a care system. Otherwise, a lack of collaboration and data across the continuum can lead to un-informed care, higher costs, and consumer dissatisfaction.

    • Offer On-Demand Care

      Patients wait an average of 24 days to schedule a doctor appointment, up 15% since 2014. With telehealth, patients can conveniently request an urgent care visit from home, work or on the go.

    • Reduce Leakage

      Patients prefer their PCP, but are often forced to seek care elsewhere due to long wait times. Telehealth clinics helps to connect the continuum of care and keep patients in-network with access to urgent care providers.

    • Preserve Continuity

      An integrated urgent care telehealth program keeps PCP and specialists informed and enables collaboration as patients move throughout the continuum. Eliminate gaps in EHR history and maintain continuity with telehealth.
