ProHealth Doctors Will Soon See Patients on Their Computer, Smart Phone, or Tablet!
April 30, 2015
We are pleased to announce that we will launch a new telemedicine service in June to provide our Anthem patients with a fast, convenient way to see a ProHealth doctor for non-emergency needs on weekday evenings. Anthem’s LiveHealth Online telemedicine service, staffed by ProHealth doctors, will give our Anthem-insured adult patients the option to use their smart phone, tablet, or computer to have a live video visit with a ProHealth doctor. Patients will be able to address health issues with a doctor from home, work, or wherever they happen to be—all they need is a Wi-Fi signal or Internet access. These services will be offered outside of normal office hours to provide patients with convenient care at a lower cost. Our goal in evaluating this technology is to determine how to use it appropriately in our medical practice, to increase the convenience for patients and providers in resolving clinical problems that are suitable to this approach.
