DialCare Launches Telemedicine Plan for Consumers

June 13, 2018

FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 13, 2018--DialCare announced today the release of its direct-to-consumer telemedicine plan and companion mobile app for individuals and families. The company officially launched in January 2018 with business and employer group telemedicine solutions and now expands its reach to the consumer market.

DialCare’s telemedicine plan for consumers, which is available to join at www.dialcare.com, provides around-the-clock access to a national network of licensed physicians for non-emergency care and unlimited phone and video consultations on smartphones, tablets and computers through DialCare’s mobile app for both iOS and Android.

DialCare services also include: quick and easy e-prescribing for patients; assistance from health advocates; phone access to registered nurses for help; online access to pharmacists, dentists and alternative medicine doctors for questions; medical history and records storage of consultations; and on-demand customer service from DialCare’s U.S.-based support team available 24/7.

“Our telemedicine plan gives patients the ability to choose how and when they receive care for common illnesses like a cold or the flu,” said Jeremy Hedrick, Senior Vice President. “In the coming years, telemedicine services will be equally important as traditional in-person services – especially among millennials, baby boomers and the large percentage of rural residents living far away from health care providers.”

Since the inception of the telemedicine model over three decades ago, the number of patients cared for through telemedicine has risen from a few thousand to an estimated 10 million people in both rural and urban settings. According to the American Telemedicine Association, the vast majority of growth has occurred in the last decade.

As one of the newest telemedicine companies to enter this market, DialCare is on track to be one of the fastest-growing products in this space, with a membership projection of nearly half a million members by the end of 2018.

In addition to DialCare’s direct-to-consumer plan, it also provides employer groups with a secure, scalable and cost-efficient telemedicine solution that can be customized and co-branded to meet each client’s unique needs and business model requirements. DialCare’s operations are fully HIPAA, PCI and HITECH compliant, and can be offered as a standalone option or within bundled combinations.
