In a recent press release, Doctor.com announced the launch of VirtualVisit — a new telemedicine solution that enables any provider to start practicing medicine virtually in less than 5 minutes, completely free of charge.
Unlike recent entrants into the telehealth market, VirtualVisit is the only telemedicine solution that features in-app patient review collection, free text messaging, and integration with the leading consumer healthcare websites — empowering providers to enhance the online visibility and reputation of their practices and capture new patient opportunities from across the web, even during the COVID-19 crisis.
VirtualVisit offers fully HIPAA-compliant video conferencing that works on any device (smartphone, tablet, or computer) and requires no downloads, training, or complex integrations. Patients simply click a link they receive via email or text message, and they are immediately connected with the provider in a high-definition video conference.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted care delivery as we know it and rapidly accelerated patient adoption of telemedicine. Doctor.com has developed a brand-new and completely free telemedicine solution that allows providers to get their 'virtual practices' up and running in minutes and, more importantly, will help them rebuild and grow their patient base well beyond the pandemic," said Andrei Zimiles, CEO of Doctor.com. "Before launching VirtualVisit, we closely studied the telemedicine space through the lens of our provider community and identified a huge gap between complicated and expensive solutions that require major workflow changes and free, nonsecure video chat services that were not built for healthcare use. We designed VirtualVisit to fill that gap. It offers more free features and integrations than any other solution and is purpose-built to tackle the challenges expressed by providers on the front lines. This is our way of fighting back against the pandemic and supporting healthcare professionals during these challenging times."
