When we say, “24/7,” we literally mean anytime, anywhere.
Provide affordable healthcare, day and night. People don’t get sick on a schedule and it’s not always convenient to leave home or work to visit a doctor. Technology-enabled healthcare gives your members access to affordable, convenient, quality healthcare, anytime, from anywhere. That means a physician is always just a call, click or swipe away when they:
- Wake up at 2 a.m. with flu-like symptoms.
- Get a scratchy throat at work but can’t afford to leave.
- Feel under the weather during a vacation, on a business trip or away from home.
- Live in a rural area where access to healthcare is limited.
How Teladoc works:
Members can get the care they need within minutes in just a few steps:
1. Provide medical history
Health information is provided during account setup, which is reviewed by the physician prior to a consult.
2. Request a consult
The member can connect with the first available physician or schedule an appointment for a convenient time.
3. Talk with the physician
Within minutes, a physician will call back, listen, diagnose the issue and prescribe medication, if medically necessary.
4. Pick up the prescription
The prescription is sent electronically to a local pharmacy selected by the member.
5. Reconcile the account
Health records are updated, payments are processed, if required, and the member can send consult results to his/her primary care physician.
