To improve the delivery of healthcare services through the use of video, Stat Doctors has developed a mobile app called eVisits—available for iPad, iPhone and Android smartphones. The app provides the same features as a computer application and links members with board-certified ER physicians for on-demand treatment of minor illnesses and common medical conditions.
"Health care delivery is shifting rapidly toward an affordable, on-demand model, yet it’s imperative that convenience doesn’t compromise quality," said Dr. Alan C. Roga, M.D., F.A.C.E.P., founder and CEO of Stat Health Services, the providers of Stat Doctors.
With an average wait time of six minutes, patients can use the app to seek treatment for minor illnesses such as respiratory infections, influenza, strep throat and other non-emergency conditions.
The entire health care delivery model is available through the app—including HD video enabling patients and doctors to communicate as they would in person.
Doctors can ePrescribe medications, instantly delivering them to the patient's pharmacy of choice.
Within 72 hours of every eVisit, a follow-up call is conducted to ensure the patient's recovery.
Patients are treated solely by an exclusive network of board-certified ER physicians.
The American Telemedicine Association estimates more than 10 million Americans directly benefited from telemedicine over the past year, and this number is expected to more than double by 2016.
Moreover, according to a January report from comScore, mobile devices accounted for 55% of Internet usage in the United States, and apps made up 47% of total traffic.
Anticipating the growing demand for mobile health care services, Stat Doctors created a HIPAA-compliant app offering high-quality, secure and immediate care utilizing video.
