Service offers a low cost alternative to Emergency Room and Urgent Care visits
Delivers convenient anytime, anywhere access to emergency physicians for common, minor medical conditions
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Stat Health Services Inc. announced today STAT DOCTORS, an innovative eHealth service that brings patients a modern day virtual house call. Developed by emergency physicians, STAT DOCTORS leverages state-of-the-art technologies – including secure single sign-on, electronic health records (EHRs), ePrescribing and video conferencing – to equip patients with 24x7 access to emergency physicians to address common, minor medical issues.
Currently being offered to employers, third party administrators (TPAs) and insurance carriers as a supplemental health benefit, STAT DOCTORS™ provides patients easy, convenient access to an emergency physician. Patients complete a one-time, online registration and can schedule an eVisit on demand via www.STATDOCTORS.com. STAT DOCTORS physicians conduct eVisits using its secure web conferencing platform and will contact the patient at the phone number specified when the eVisit is requested. Patients can stay online for the eVisit and even use their webcam, upload related medical photos in advance, or just conduct the eVisit from a landline, cell phone – wherever they are when they need urgent care for minor medical conditions. Prescriptions are sent electronically to a patient’s pharmacy of choice – whether they are at home, across town or travelling cross country.
“As a practicing emergency physician, I see people routinely use the ER as a primary means of seeking medical care,” explained Alan C. Roga, M.D., Chairman and CEO of Stat Health Services. According to the National Center for Policy Analysis more than one half of all ER visits are for non-emergency health problems. Roga continued, “The shortage of primary care physicians makes it challenging for patients to schedule visits with their doctor when they need to. Until now, the only other option was to choose between the ER or Urgent Care centers.”
STAT DOCTORS enables patients to save time, money and gain the added convenience of anytime, anywhere care for common, minor medical conditions such as respiratory infections, asthma, sinus infections, allergies, sports injuries and more - that can be addressed with an eVisit. It’s also a tool for employers to increase employee satisfaction and retention, reduce employee absenteeism and decrease costs associated with delivery of appropriate levels of care.
