Employers & Groups Benefits

Financial Health Check

  • Increase Productivity and Access By providing telemedicine remotely, employees are not forced to take time off to see a physician. Average time of missed work to see a family practice physician is 4 hours. In fact, businesses can set up a private room where employees can speak with the doctor and greatly limit the financial impact to the employer. For those employees treating sick family members, telemedicine has been proven to enhance the quality of care with a faster response time.
  • Redirect ER and urgent care utilization to more appropriate modes of care Seventy percent of primary care visits and 40% of ER visits are unnecessary and could be redirected through telemedicine. If you were to eliminate the unnecessary ER visits and PCP visits, what would it do for the cost of your health plan? Telemedicine of America is an affordable option to costly urgent care and ER visits for non-emergency issues.
