Meeting the Need for “Telehealth” Medical Access for Today’s Lifestyle
Although telehealth has been available for over twenty years, serving far away and difficult to reach people that need medical services, there is no other company like MedCallPro, that has stepped up to offer immediate virtual medical care access, in real time, for people like you and me, who lead very busy lives.
Today, we live in a fast-paced and demanding world. Who has time for the overcrowded doctors’ offices and overcrowded emergency rooms? It is not only the time that people lose waiting for a doctor or emergency room visit, it is money, too. On average, one doctor’s office visit can take 2-3 hours for a 5-10 minute consultation. Add another 4-6 hours waiting in a crowded emergency room, which can mean the loss of work hours in your paycheck.
MedCallPro saw the need for people to have affordable low-cost medical access to a doctor, without the long wait. In fact, over 70% of all urgent care and emergency room visits are unnecessary. If those patients had access to a doctor over the phone, more than 95% of those patients would have their health issue resolved on the first call. If the patient needed to call back, he or she would most likely have 100% healthcare resolution.
Why? Most illness is really about preventive care. For example, if one has a fever, what should they take? Or, if one has a sore throat, chest congestion, or rash, what should he or she do? Many questions are from parents trying to help their children. Most people just need that simple assurance from a doctor or a prescription to help them with their healthcare need. All of these patients can get the care they need by speaking to a doctor over the phone.
MedCallPro puts the doctor in your hands. You can call from home, in your car, on vacation, or at work. Call from any location, at any time day or night. You do not need insurance or copay. Your membership covers every call, as many times as needed. Never worry about getting an appointment with a doctor again. When you call, your appointment begins. The doctor is always in. If you have a phone, you have a doctor.
