Earlier this month, the team at HealthTap announced the launch of HealthTap Concierge, a new pay-as-you-go service that aims to be affordable for its core audience.
According to the company, HealthTap Concierge solves the three biggest problems you face when trying to get fast, reliable medical advice from your own doctor: (1) It takes too long to get an appointment (2) It’s inconvenient to travel to the doctor’s physical office and possibly dangerous in terms of contracting an illness (3) Doctor visits and even insurance co-pays often cost too much.
So what role does HealthTap Concierge play in eliminating these three negative attributes associated with a traditional doctor’s office visit?
“HealthTap now connects you directly with your doctor and other top specialists and generalists of your choice—virtually by HD video, text chat or voice,” the company says. “Using any smartphone, tablet or personal computer you can also get advice and even medication refills with no wait time.”
Users are promised an “instantaneous virtual consult” priced at $44 per consult.
“Millions of users and doctors have spoken, and we’ve listened,” said Ron Gutman, HealthTap’s CEO. “With the all new HealthTap Concierge, we’re making Virtual Care an exciting reality by enabling people to interact with their trusted doctors and specialists at more convenient times, eliminating the need to take time off work, pay expensive fees or travel far. Consumer-driven healthcare is the future, and with HealthTap Concierge anyone can be part of this exciting future and invite their own doctors to transform medicine by delivering the most modern care and helping people everywhere feel good every day!”
