Salus Telehealth’s mobile app, VideoMedicine, is definitely making waves in the telemedicine industry as the company announces its newest customer, Liberty HealthShare. VideoMedicine allows patients to access doctors 24/7 from their mobile device, tablet or computer, to receive care for a variety of health conditions, including the flu and stomach virus that frequently occur during the winter season. Not only do patients gain access to convenient, on-demand primary care physician services through VideoMedicine, but they are also able to choose board-certified physicians and health professionals who best fit their budget – a choice that other telemedicine services do not provide. Patients have the added benefit of inviting their own doctors to join the VideoMedicine physician network, thus offering continuity of care with preferred providers that other platforms cannot match.
Since VideoMedicine became available to Liberty HealthShare, over 600 of the medical cost-sharing organization’s members have joined the platform. The savings have been immediate for all members sharing within the organization, as VideoMedicine consultations have a significantly lower cost than traditional office visits.
“At Salus, we believe that great healthcare starts with uniform access to top-quality care within a consistent patient-provider relationship,” says Paula Guy, CEO of Salus Telehealth. “Improving efficiency for Liberty HealthShare members during contact with their physicians and healthcare providers allows for optimal healthcare management. Our users are also able to invite their own physicians and providers onto the VideoMedicine platform, which is unprecedented in the telemedicine industry. This creates continuity of care within a comfortable environment.”
