When it comes to our health, we want a dedicated professional working with us every step of the way. That’s one reason Teladoc Chief Quality Officer Dr. Jason Tibbels also continues to practice as a family physician. A well-known and highly respected expert in the field of telemedicine, he is often called on to help shape policies and guidelines from a doctor’s point of view.
“Providing a virtual connection to highly trained doctors, specialists and therapists is changing the healthcare industry,” says Dr. Tibbels. “When we can combine faster access with lower costs, we have the opportunity to improve healthcare in the U.S. and around the world significantly—especially for people who live in towns and communities far away from large cities.”
Dr. Tibbels, who graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, focuses on innovating the services that Teladoc members receive, no matter where they might be on the map. “Our goal is to ensure that our members get the best quality care anywhere, anytime they need it, in a fraction of the time it would normally take.” No more waiting weeks for an office visit or driving for miles to an urgent care clinic. With a broad range of services, Teladoc also expands a member’s access to mental healthcare, dermatology specialists and registered dietitians.
“We love caring for our members, who have trusted us during more than 20 million visits,” Dr. Tibbels adds. “Their support has made our service successful, and we are grateful to be living our dream. Our physician experts and specialists take so much pride in helping each and every member.” Dr. Tibbels and the entire medical team at Teladoc truly value talking to members, treating each one like they would a member of their own family.
